It's June 1897, and it is Kate's eleventh birthday and Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Kate's joy is short-lived, and tragedy strikes, threatening her family with the loss of all they hold dear. Before long they are evicted from their home in Ancoats, Manchester, and, with no wages coming in and a mother unable to cope, Kate has to grow up fast. Her deepest desire is to keep her brothers and sisters together. A journey of hope and heartache takes Kate from the hardships of the workhouse to the dubious comforts of a position in service; from the joys of marriage, to the sorrows and losses suffered during the Great War
