Whitechapel, London, 1836 Born into poverty and hardship, and living in the filthy squalor of the tenement buildings, Ruby Skinner’s decision to approach the unscrupulous East End villain, Donald McCoy, for help, ends in disaster. In a desperate bid to finance a move to rescue her ailing mother to the fresh air of the countryside, Ruby’s plan does not go as expected, and she realises, too late, that she has made a huge mistake, which will consequently shape the rest of her life. Robert Thornton , a wealthy business man from the affluent area of Reigate, also had the misfortune of suffering from the under hand dealings with McCoy, and when curiosity forces him to pursue Ruby Skinner, the barriers which have always divided the social classes of the nineteenth century are put to test by the power of love. The thoroughly spoilt Clarissa Parker who has had her eyes set on Robert Thornton with the intention of becoming his wife, is not prepared to give him up easily, and with her malicious plans, sets out to destroy Ruby and Robert’s happiness.When Ruby suddenly disappears, leaving behind her two year old daughter Victoria, Robert's search for her ends in vain, and leaves everyone to believe that she has somehow met with her death. Following in her mother's footsteps, nineteen years later, Victoria flees her home, to escape the unsuitable arranged marriage to the wealthy land owner George Stone. In his determined search for her, Robert's journey uncovers much more than he set out to find.
