Life is hard for a plain, unloved, urchin like Ruby Brandon. Alone in the world with little to bring her joy other than the occasional orphanage outings to Wood Horse Farm, Ruby has nothing but her dreams to hold on to.
The only thing she loves more than the farm horses is Clark Wood, the eldest son of the Wood family, but the unscrupulous manager of the farm has dark plans for Clark.
Ruby helps Clark escape to America, but she herself is forced to seek refuge in the teeming industrial slums of Newcastle, a place where dreams come to die.
Clark has gone, the orphanage and the farm a memory. Can Ruby discover life in these dark streets?
Will Clark return to find Ruby again? How can he when she has disappeared and no one wants to tell him where?
