Jane was fifteen, pregnant, and abandoned by her sweetheart and seducer, George Hudson, when she fled her small Yorkshire village in disgrace.
She makes her way in the world and raises her daughter Milly with love. All the while swearing to one day take revenge on the cruel man who deserted her. Years later, Jane and Milly manage to find work together… work that just happens to be in the Hudson household.
When George and Jane cross paths again will she finally exact her revenge? Or will time and the promise of new love prove to heal all wounds?
Best-selling author, Beryl Kingston, weaves the true account of railway mogul, George Hudson, with a story of love, betrayal, and eventually hope against the backdrop of Victorian England during the rail network boom.
