Pain
When the legitimacy of her twin babies is questioned, the tiny infants are sent far away. James is adopted by Edgar's uncle, the very wealthy Lord Redfern, master of Redfern Abbey. But Daisy is sent to a cold-hearted childless couple who raise her to be a maid, rather than a daughter.

When Daisy, at sixteen, finally escapes her hard life with her adoptive brother Boyd, they arrive at the Abbey to seek work.
