Publisher's Summary

Eva Masson longs to escape the poverty of her Dundee childhood. She doesn't want to end up in the city's jute-mills where her mother and sister are spinners. Clever as well as pretty, Eva is selected to stay on at school after the age of 14 and trains as a teacher. When she falls in love with Nicholas North, the privileged son of the jute-mill owner, she embarks on a life very different from that of her family. But Eva is principled and compassionate, and things are not easy for her in a world that is often at odds with what she believes in.
