Set against the backdrop of the aftermath of World War I.’Molly Verne has a dogged determination and a steadfast desire to have a life beyond her mother’s unrelenting criticisms and the harsh reality of a world filled with brutality, lies, deception and crushing poverty. Molly and countless others of a ’lesser class’ are nothing more than prey to deviants who roam society in search of their next victim. Molly protects her young brother from parental abuse and finds the courage to change her and John’s life for the better.
