But on the eve of the wedding, Clifford commits an act that shatters Daisy's happy life and forces her to give birth to a baby she believes is dead. She is cast out by her family and has no choice but to make her own way in the world. When further tragedy strikes, Daisy sets out for Leeds where she encounters poverty and hardship but also friendship. What she really longs for is a love of her own. But the key to happiness may not be as far away as she thinks...
