Defying her mother, who has always insisted her daughter would never go into service, she takes a job as a lady's companion in a grand house. But her desire to better herself won't be dampened by domestic chores, and much to the amusement of her fellow staff, Catherine embarks on a programme of self-education. With her new-found knowledge, soon the ill-educated, illegitimate and streetwise Kitty McMullen is a ghost from the past, and Catherine leaves the North-East to make a fresh start. But there will be many hardships and heartaches to come before the child of Jarrow finally comes home.
