Emmeline Dornay's dying wish is for her daughter Melissa to have a home.
But when the funeral is over, Melissa discovers that her future looks bleak.
Wealthy Lilian Winterton will honour her promise and put a roof over Melissa's head, but only if she can earn her keep. As an unpaid seamstress in the grand Winterton household, Melissa is ignored by the family and mistrusted by their servants. And when scandal occurs and the blame lands unfairly at her feet, she is thrown on to the streets.
Left with nothing but her needle and thread, Melissa finds her dreams are in tatters.
But can the rags of her life be sewn into riches...?
