1898 Yorkshire - Aurora Pettigrew has it all, a loving family, a nice
home, a comfortable life. She’s waiting for the right man to offer her
marriage, and the man for her is Reid Sinclair, heir to the Sinclair
fortune and the love of her life.

But, Reid’s mother, Julia, is against the match and her ruthlessness
unearths a family secret that will tear Aurora’s world apart.

Unwilling to bring shame on her family and needing answers to the
allegations brought to light by Reid’s mother, Aurora begins a long
journey away from home. She leaves behind all that is familiar and safe
to enter a world of mean streets and poor working class.

Living in the tenements of York, surrounded by people of a class she’d
never mixed with before, Aurora struggles to come to terms with the way
her life has changed. By chance, she reconnects with a man from her past
and before he leaves with the army to war in South Africa, he offers her
security through marriage.

Aurora knows she should be happy, but the memory of her love for Reid
threatens her future.

When tragedy strikes, can Aurora find the strength to accept her life
and forget the past?
