She was born plain Dora, in a bleak northern town where her future seemed all too predictable. But from the moment she took her first steps, she went after what she wanted. At the age of 18, she wanted freedom and a new life - and a new name, Chloe. She went to Brighton to work as a mother's help and glimpsed for the first time a life of luxury and wealth - a life which, she believed, could be hers. But her new circumstances brought with them difficulties that she could not have foretold, including the passionate interest of her boss and the unexpected bond she discovered with the small children in whose charge she had been placed. Chloe embarked upon a dangerous course, until a near tragedy changed everything for her - bringing a new love into her life and helping her to appreciate what she had.
