Opal Plumstead is based before the World War One started and when it began. This book was amazing, I loved reading every bit of it. It was very sad at the end but I won’t tell you what happens because it will ruin everthing.But in bits of the story I kind of wanted to skip the page and carry on.
Opal Plumstead’s father has been arrested for stealing money from a very rich office. Opal has to give up her friendship with Oliva and scholarship at St.Margaret’s and go and work in Fairy Glen Factory. Later on she gets lots of money for the family. Her sister, Cassie, falls in love with a married man and distaster strikes. Even Opal who dosen’t belive in love falls in love with a man.
