Open the Door!, whose author is probably best known for her 1930 biography of Robert Burn. Catherine Carswell's first novel is the story of Joanna Bannerman's attempts to find the freedom denied by her religious upbringing. It is also a fascinating portrayal of genteel society in Glasgow at the beginning of the 20th century, when the fortunes of the Empire's Second City were bound up in colonialism overseas. Carswell's portrayal of a journey from girlhood to adulthood is full of nuanced observation; Joanna's love affairs are embarrassing and illicit, unfulfilling and life-changing.

Catherine Carswell (nee MacFarlane) was born in Glasgow in 1879 into a merchant family with a strong evangelical background. Her two novels, set in late nineteenth and early twentieth century Glasgow are strongly autobiographical and evoke the middle class world in which she lived. Lawrence’s friendship and correspondence encouraged Carswell to write her first novel Open the Door! which won the Melrose Prize on its publication in 1920. Another novel, The Camomile, appeared in 1922, but Carswell became much better known in 1930 when her fictional biography, The Life of Robert Burns was published to much outrage.
