From the author of Pearl of Pit Lane, a dramatically powerful and romantic saga of tragedy and triumph. If you love Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin, you'll love Glenda Young!
'You deserve more than this, Jess.... You deserve to know the truth about the McNallys.'
When a newborn baby girl is found abandoned with nothing but a scarlet ribbon tied to her basket, Ada Davidson, housekeeper of the wealthy McNally family's home, the Uplands, takes her into her care. Sworn to secrecy about the baby's true identity, Ada names her Jess and brings her up as her own, giving Jess no reason to question where she came from.
But when Ada passes away, grief-stricken Jess, now 16, is banished from the place she's always called home. With the scarlet ribbon the only connection to her past, will Jess ever find out where she really belongs? And will she uncover the truth about the ruthless McNallys?
