Love, family and survival...

Life is tough on the cobbled backstreet courtyards of Abbey Street, Warwickshire, in the 1840s: boys are destined for the pit and girls for the mill. Despite this, clever, feisty Maryann is happy there – until her mother dies. Her family collapses, leaving Maryann coping with everything, exhausted and lonely. Especially as Toby, the boy she is set on marrying, insists they wait.

When things are at their bleakest, Maryann is offered a lifeline: a position as nanny to the daughter of the mill owner, Wesley Marshall. Though the house is filled with secrets and heartache, there is kindness, too, and to Maryann’s surprise she grows close to Marshall. But their relationship has not gone unnoticed and it threatens to unleash a world of problems on them all...

A warm and captivating story of fighting for love in the face of adversity, from much-loved author Rosie Goodwin.
