He is engulfed by despair living in a Glasgow slum while Mary struggles to keep their family together. Circumstances change radically as the years pass and eventually the long-kept secret is revealed.

Love greed, hopelessness, murder, forgiveness, and personal triumph during the Industrial Revolution. Laugh, Cry, and be transported to a time of real hardship for working class people, and the strength of character that inhabited our tough ancestors.
