A Child Of Jarrow by Janet Macleod Trotter

1902: Jarrow, Tyneside. To escape her possessive and drunken step-father, nineteen-year-old Kate Fawcett is sent away from Tyneside and finds work at Ravensworth Castle.

But it is her daughter Catherine who gives her life meaning and keeps Kate from giving up - that, and the thought that Alexander might one day return to claim her and their child...
