Can Susan escape the dark shadows of her childhood...?
Born into the squalor of the notorious Ash-Pits, young Susan Lucket is determined to raise herself above the poverty of her childhood. Discovering she has a natural talent for nursing, she forges a new life for herself - and as an independent, unmarried midwife, she is a woman far ahead of her time.
But when Edward Calthorpe, youngest son of the privileged landowner , offers her marriage, the memory of her terrible childhood returns to haunt her. And when Edward's wayward brother seduces little Polly, her beloved younger sister - and then betrays her in the most brutal of ways - Susan faces losing everything she has struggled for.
Can she find the strength to fight for her right to happiness?

A POWERFUL AND GRIPPING SAGA FROM THE AUTHOR OF A CHILD'S VOICE CALLINGAbout the Author:
Maggie Bennett was born in Hampshire. When she left school at eighteen she started general nursing training and, after a year as a staff nurse, she went on to train as a midwife. Her career was interrupted by marriage at thirty-five, and she moved to Manchester where her two daughters were born; she later returned to work as a midwife until her retirement in 1991. Having been an avid reader and scribbler all her life, she took a correspondence course in creative writing after her husband's death in 1983, and started writing articles and short stories. Her first novel, A Child's Voice Calling, was published by Arrow in 2002.
