One night in March 1835, a baby is born in Westbourne workhouse. The mother is obviously a lady, but before she can do more than name her daughter Marianne, she dies. Marianne being too grand a name, the child becomes known as Molly, Molly March. Life is never easy for a workhouse girl and Molly's is no exception. Yet fate has wider horizons in store for Molly and she finds herself following the drum in the Crimea, where her indomitable courage wins the reluctant admiration of Captain Matthew Hamilton. And then it appears that the answer to the mystery of Molly's birth lies in the Crimea too...
