Would her life always be one of poverty and struggle? The gripping new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Best of Daughters.

     When Ellen dies in childbirth, an independent-minded, spirited Sarah falls foul of Workhouse Master Trigg and his cruel wife.

     Sarah's ordeal seems to be over when philanthropist and sugar mill owner James Arbuthnot takes her into his home. 

     But her wealthy benefactor reports Trigg and his wife. And blaming Sarah for their misfortune, in a fit of revenge the couple decide to take the law into their own hands.
