Summary
Born the day of the great mining disaster at Jane Pit, Merry, Trent's start in life is marked with tragedy. She is brought up by her only surviving relative, her feisty grandmother Peggy, living in poverty-stricken isolation in the deserted village near the old pit. Times are hard, and then an unwelcome visit from the ruthless mining agent, Miles Gallagher, makes them even harder. He callously rapes Peggy, and when she finds to her distress that she is pregnant with his child, she tells no-one. However, pretty and bright, Merry attracts the attention of dashing young doctor, Tom Gallagher, Miles' son, and history starts to repeat itself when she falls pregnant. Losing both her job and accommodation at the hospital, her future looks bleak as she faces a tough choice: a marriage of convenience or destitution and the workhouse
