Non hates the thought that Caradoc is leaving her and their son to go to London on the drove, and when she receives news of a terrible accident, her world falls apart. Jessie is fighting to make her business a success, but is devastated when the man she loves is arrested and sent to Newgate prison. She knows that he is innocent, and will rely on Non to speak for him in court. But Non has many worries of her own, and hasn't given up hope that she will be reunited with Caradoc, whatever it takes...
