Summary

Summary

The harsh urban life of 1900s Sunderland is no place for beautiful, innocent Laura, whose determined spirit brings nothing but trouble. In love with wealthy Ralph, she flees to London, rejected by his family and threatened by her cruel stepfather. But there she finds only heartache and treachery. Amidst the hardship and brutality of World War I she is forced to think twice about everything she holds dear, and when the bloodshed finally ceases she faces another struggle-- with her past. The fancy woman must return to the scornful streets of her birthplace. Unbeknownst to her, it may offer love in the last place she'd ever imagine looking.
