Leeds, 1914. Sisters Julia and Margaret Wood are struggling to rise above devastating poverty, while the threat of war looms large over their community. Angry feelings about foreigners have reached boiling point; their German-Jewish father's search for work proves hopeless, leaving entrepreneurial Julia to keep the family afloat by hawking homemade pies on the streets of Leeds. Her beautiful elder sister Margaret, an apprentice milliner and new member of the suffragette set, seeks a faster way out of the daily grind, pinning her hopes on a rich suffragette's journalist son, Thomas. But as the war rages on, it is left to Julia to discover the true meaning of courage and family, as she learns to look forward to the start of the new day - and the promise of a better life ahead.

An American academic engaged in Bronte research arrived in Penzance, with the aim of finding out more about its famous son, Sir Humphrey Davy. Why had Anne Bronte mentioned him in her scandalous novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall? Help with his researches came from a modern day tenant of the Branwell family home in Chapel Street, where the Brontes' mother, Maria Branwell, grew up. From this meeting of minds emerged this monograph, a challenge to the literary critics who may know little about Davy's more artistic writings.
