When Eloise Cribb receives the news that her husband's ship has been lost at sea, she wonders how she is ever going to manage. With two young children, the rent overdue, and almost nothing to live on, she has no alternative but to turn to his estranged family for help. She sets off on the long and arduous journey to Yorkshire, but is met with hostility and soon realises she has little choice but to return to London.
Virtually destitute and desperate, Eloise is faced with her worst nightmare: she must either go to the workhouse, or abandon her children at the Foundling Hospital. But she is determined to keep them safe and under her protective wing at all costs.

This is one of those books that once you pick it up you cannot put down until you finish it. Excellent book. I thought I would never find another author that I would like but now im happy that I have.
It's so great to hear Annie aldington voice I listen to so many of her narrations and kinda wish she read every book. Story was great
