Description

Jessie Price is young and beautiful, and has travelled the drovers' roads from South Wales to London's Smithfield Market. She is anxious to escape from her wicked boss, Jed Lambert, and her friends encourage her to become a milkmaid in London. Her ambition to own her own dairy grows, and she is helped by young Aible, who has fallen in love with her. Meanwhile, Non Jones is desperately unhappy. She knows that her husband Caradoc loves her but his family still don't accept her, and are cruel when Caradoc Isn't watching. Non hates the thought that Caradoc is leaving her and their son to go to London on the drove, and when she receives news of a terrible accident, her world falls apart. Jessie is fighting to make her business a success, but is devastated when the man she loves is arrested and sent to Newgate prison. She knows that he is innocent, and will rely on Non to speak for him in court. But Non has many worries of her own, and hasn't given up hope that she will be reunited with Caradoc, whatever it takes...
