Despite an early life marked by tragedy and hardship, Beth Sherwin dreams of staying on at school and even going to university - a heady ambition for a Potteries girl in 1956. Then a brutal encounter leaves her pregnant at seventeen.

Unwilling to break her widowed mother's heart, Beth bears her secret alone and gives up her baby daughter for adoption.

It seems her desperate gamble has succeeded. She finishes school, takes on a challenging job and meets Michael, charming eldest son of the wealthy Rushton family. She has to fight both class prejudice and the jealousy of her old enemy Ursula to win him - but when he asks her to marry him, Beth faces a dilemma.

Does she dare tell Michael her guilty secret and risk losing him? And even if he stands by her, can she bear the certainty that the brutal stranger who fathered her child will be at her wedding?

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderfully fast moving read with an eye-catching plot brilliantly portrayed. * North Wales Chronicle on Ring of *
'A rags-to-riches story with some dramatic twists and turns, the book has everything from romance to tragedy...A real tear-jerking rollercoaster ride...A great book to curl up to after a hard day at work.' Dumfries and Galloway Standard on Ring of Clay
A perfect novel . . . Kaine is great at conveying the tough times following the Second World War. Beth is an inspiring heroine, and readers will love her rise from rags to riches. * Irish Tatler on Ring of Clay *
A tense and compelling epic. * U Magazine on Ring of Clay *
'A realistic style which at once engages the interest and belief of her readers, the story is a gripping "rags to riches" tale which has unputdownable qualities.' Staffordshire Life on Ring of Clay
'Romance stands out from the crowd...There is much more than just a girl-meets-boy-wedding-bells-happy-ending to Kaine's book...Sub-plots are skilfully woven into the tale, but it is her studies of the relationships between her characters which single the novel out.' Leicester Mercury
Kaine has a gift for storytelling. * Woman's Way on Ring of Clay *
Kaine is a fantastic storyteller and has a knack for connecting with the reader and making her characters seem true to life. * Woman's Way on Rosemary *
