Read by Carole Boyd.
Ada Williams was once an ambitious woman who believed money and power would bring her happiness. But now, she is all alone in the world except for her greedy, bitter son Peter, who despises her and waits only for the day he will inherit her fortune. Ada, however, has a different plan altogether.
Just a few miles away in Blackburn, the Bolton family may be poor - but the love they share, and the friendship of their neighbours, means they can overcome almost any adversity. But no one could foresee the shocking events of Christmas night, 1932, which split the family asunder, leaving young Larry crippled and the twins, Ellie and Betsy, in a foster home. Events that began many years ago, when Ada Williams was young and foolish.
