"In the world of historical saga writers, there's a brand new voice." (My Weekly)
From the author of Pearl of Pit Lane, a dramatically powerful and romantic saga of tragedy and triumph.
If you love Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin, you'll love Glenda Young!
You're a Dinsdale lass, Ruby. Nothing and no one keeps us lot down.
A life of poverty in a cramped pit cottage is all that 17-year-old Ruby Dinsdale has known. Even with her father and younger brother working at the coal mine, money is tight. Her mother, Mary, is skilled at stretching what little they have, but the small contribution Ruby makes from her job at the local pub makes all the difference. So when Ruby is sacked, and Mary becomes pregnant again, the family's challenges are greater than ever.
When charming Miner Gordon begins to court Ruby, it seems as though happiness is on the horizon, until she uncovers a deeper betrayal than she could ever have imagined.
But although the Dinsdales are materially poor, they are rich in love, friendship and determination - all qualities that they will draw on to get them through whatever lies ahead.
Look out for Glenda's other compelling sagas, Belle of the Back Streets, The Tuppenny Child, Pearl of Pit Lane, The Girl with the Scarlet Ribbon and The Paper Mill Girl.
