The recollections of Bridget Knight's upbringing in a poverty stricken family in a claustrophobic small southern Irish town, with her eventual escape to prosperous England. Looking back I do not think that childhood should be that traumatic and painful with so many miserable observations. The first few years of Bridget's life in an uncompassionate town now seemed to belong to the lost child.
"A very touching story"
Becky is beautiful kind and lonely. All she wanted was to be loved and respected. Far from home and so very young, Becky's life takes a tragic turn, when her first love commits suicide. She then meets Sam, whom she hopes will fill her life with love and happiness. However, Sam's spiteful cruel mother has other ideas.
