Summary

‘I can take him away from you any time I want.’

Her mistress’s cruel taunt is deeply disturbing to Jenny Dickens—why would Claudia be interested in a servant’s sweetheart? All the same, Jenny reckons without Claudia’s vicious nature. Using a wily trick, Claudia seduces Frank who, overcome with shame, leaves the household for a new life in Blackburn.

Losing Frank is just the first of many disasters that leave Jenny struggling to cope alone. When Claudia gives birth to a baby girl—Frank’s child—she disowns the helpless infant and relies on Jenny to care for little Katie and love her as her own. Always afraid for the child who has come to depend on her, Jenny is constantly called upon to show courage and fortitude to fight for all she holds dear. In her heart, she yearns for Frank, believing that one day they must be reunited…
