They shared a secret no one must ever know…

When seventeen-year-old Ruth Davies' father is invalided out of the war in April 1918 and unable to work the whole family has no option but to move to the infamous Tiger Bay area of Cardiff. Not only faced with a life of adversity, Ruth and her mother Caitlin also share a secret, one that no one else must ever know.

Ruth and Caitlin are both forced to find work but earn barely enough to put food on the table let alone pay the rent. And an increasingly neglected young Glynis runs wild. With poverty and disease widespread, Caitlin soon contracts tuberculosis and dies and they have no choice but to move into an even more squalid neighbourhood. But Ruth is still determined to keep their secret, at all costs.

Until their father dies shortly afterwards and an ever more desperate Ruth and Glynis find themselves living hand-to-mouth. And feral Glynis turns to stealing for food with disastrous consequences for them both…
