Could her life get any worse?

Madeline’s parents, stricken with cholera died suddenly leaving her and her younger siblings out on the street. Forced into the dreaded workhouse, conditions don't get any better. When Madeline catches the eye of the lecherous warden, she knows it’s time for their escape.

Michael once considered Madeline a bit of a nuisance when they were children. She simply followed him around all the time. But when he sees her again years later, he begins to see a new side of her. The attraction is mutual.

Michael’s father however is not backward in venting his contempt. When Madeline learns of a secret that may be influencing Michael’s motives, she flees once again.

Will Madeline and Michael sort out their feelings for each other? Can a requirement from the past diminish their love for one another? Do they have a future or will history repeat itself it and force Madeline back to the unbearable workhouse?
