Can she escape her past?
Patty Jenkins has come a long way from her poverty-stricken days in Brownlow workhouse.
She now has a coveted position in the kitchens at Freeman's Department store in Liverpool and even the prospect of advancement. For Patty has always enjoyed baking, and her flair for it has caught the attention of the store owner, who intends to have her create elaborate cakes and pastries to serve at afternoon tea to Freeman's clientele.
But when you're a workhouse girl you can never quite forgive your past, and when you've fallen on hard times before, you're always aware how easy it is to lose everything....

I enjoyed the development of the characters and the story line. Especially the setting of 1800's Australia.
