1910 Liverpool Docks. Ruby Swift is a hard-working, straight-talking woman of substance who does not suffer fools gladly, But when tragedy strikes on a bitter Christmas Eve, Ruby and her beloved Archie take matters into their own hands when a trusted employee's house is mysteriously engulfed by flames and lives are lost. Orphaned by the fire, Ruby welcomes heartbroken sixteen-year-old Anna Cassidy, into her home and family but circumstances conspire against them and she is unable to save twelve-year-old Sam Cassidy, who is sent by the Church and Father O'Connor to Canada as a homeboy. Can Ruby mend a broken heart and can these two children ever be reunited or is there another higher game in play?
