Cissie Brodie is a fighter, but this may be too much. Her mother and father are gone. She is left alone with her several brothers and sisters, and her whole sense of duty pushes her to find an answer that will save the family from the workhouse.
Enter the local Lord, a man not above extending his help to the deserving poor...but what is the price? The alternative is a man who declares he is a true protector...but Cissie senses his motives are less than pure.

Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, whom she believed to be her older sister. She began work in service but eventually moved south to Hastings, where she met and married Tom Cookson, a local grammar-school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer - her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award for the best regional novel of 1968- her readership quickly spread throughout the world, and her many bestselling novels established her as one of the most popular of contemporary women novelists. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was created a Dame of the British Empire in1993. She was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997. For many years she lived near Newcastle upon Tyne. She died shortly before her ninety secondbirthday, in June 1998.
