From Sunday Times bestselling author, Freda Lightfoot. From brief riches to rural rags and ruin...

1920s, Manchester. Living in the deprived area of Ancoats area of Manchester Polly Pride feels more fortunate than most until her husband Matthew loses his job and her life is thrown into turmoil.

With no money coming in Polly must act to keep her family from starvation. In a desperate gamble she sells all the family goods and buys a handcart, from which she sells second-hand rugs and carpets. But struggling to deal with poverty and her husband's hurt pride are only the start of her problems.

For when tragedy strikes Polly has to do battle with the bigotry of a sour brother-in-law to keep herself and her family from falling apart.

A stirring, heartrending story of love, passion, duty and family, set in the 1920s as the Second World War looms.
