Growing up in an orphanage on East London's Cobb Street, Daisy Driscoll never felt the warm heart of home. Forging her own way in the world, she struggles to make ends meet in a country on the brink of the Second World War. Her fortunes change when she meets Gerald Mortimer, a handsome cavalry subaltern in the Indian army. Finally, Daisy has found someone to love of her very own. But soon she discovers she's pregnant and Gerald is not all he claims. As he leads her along a path of danger and scandal, Daisy must find the strength within herself to get through her darkest hour.
