Since she was six, Hannah Peckham has known how hard the world is. Thrown into the workhouse by the cousin to whom her desperate soldier father entrusted her, she emerges determined to make the most of what little life has given her. But the cruel and narrow confines of the workhouse have left her vulnerable, ill-prepared for the heady hurly-burly of normal existence in the prosperous Liverpool household in which she finds work. Naively impetuous, she falls in love with a man she can never have, who sees her simply as a sweet, impressionable young girl. And when her illusions are finally shattered, she rushes into the arms of hard-drinking Alfie Duggan, and a violent, poverty-stricken marriage from which there seems no escape - without unthinkable consequences...
