Will Rosie ever escape from her brutal brothers?
As a child Rosie Parker spent the war years battling her brutish
half-brothers Seth and Norman on the farm under the
less-than-watchful eye of her father Cole. But when housekeeper
Heather Farley arrives, Rosie finds a mother - and a friend - to
look after her.
Several years later, Thomas Farley comes to find his sister.
Rosie can only tell him that she disappeared in mysterious
circumstances, abandoning her small son Alan. Determined to get
young Alan and Rosie out of the clutches of Cole and his sons,
Thomas helps unearth a terrible truth about the family. A truth
that forces Rosie away from the farm and out into a cruel world
where she must somehow come to terms with her shocking past. Is it
possible that the man who brought ruin on her family might also
bring happiness to Rosie?
