When Tilly Thompson, a girl from the canal, is caught stealing a pie from the terrace of The Imperial Hotel, Athelstone, the intervention of Captain Charles Thackery, saves her from prison. Tilly soon finds out the real reason for the rescue. With the Captain Tilly glimpses life away from the poverty and hardships of the waterways but his favour stirs up jealousy and hatred among the hotel staff, especially Freddie, the stable boy who harbours desires of his own. Freddie's pursuit leads Tilly into far greater danger than she could ever have imagined. Can she escape the prejudice, persecution and hypocrisy of Victorian society, leave her past behind and find true happiness? This is a story of love and loss, lust and passion, injustice and ultimate redemption.
