When Linda Chalmers hears her best friend from college has died her whole life changes forever. She finds herself the guardian of precocious fifteen-year old Jennifer. Ignoring her mother Kirsty's warnings and her family's reluctance Linda brings the young girl back with her to Dundee to prevent her being sent to a foster home. She believes Jennifer to be a victim of her past and is determined to ensure that she is made to feel welcome in her family. The rest of the family are unsure what to make of the sullen girl thrown into their midst. When Jennifer shows that she has no intention of settling for the lifestyle set out for her, tensions begin to rise. Spoilt, selfish and beautiful, dreaming of wealth and fame, Jennifer won't let anything, or anyone, stand in her way. She can only cause heartbreak for herself and those who have taken this cuckoo into their nest.

When Kate McPherson is only ten years old, she loses both her mother and her home. The man she knew as 'Uncle Edwin' has no place in his heart or life for his dead mistress's little girl. Kate becomes the ward of her aunt Sarah, her father's sister - a stern woman who tells Kate the full story of her mother's shame. Edwin Hamilton-Harvey was not the first man Kate's mother loved without benefit of marriage. When he came back from World War I and married her mother, Edwin already had a wife, Ruth. So begins a strange relationship between the orphaned girl and two women who ought to hate her. For both Sarah and Ruth McPherson, Kate becomes a cherished surrogate daughter. But tragedy strikes when Kate falls in love with Roddy Hamilton-Harvey, the son of the man who once rejected her. The Bradford Telegraph and Argus loved this book: 'If you enjoy Cookson you will love this.'
