After the death of her father in a mining accident, Megan and her family had no choice but to move to the local workhouse.

But conditions at the workhouse are grim, despite the kindnesses of other inmates - the tasks are gruelling, and Megan is constantly denied permission to visit her mother. It's on one of the days she's sent out on errands that her fate changes. She meets a young boy who's stealing apples from the local market, as well as a friendly well-to-do lady with the most melodious voice she's ever heard. With her newfound friends, can she find a new life for herself?
