Mary Armstrong and her brother Davey are taken to the workhouse. Davey is adopted, and Mary does not trace him until three years later. She gets work as a servant at Burwell Grange, Davey’s adoptive home. She is not revealing herself as she realises the Burwells do not love Davey; they just want him so they can inherit a fortune. Worse, other relatives are out to kill Davey so they can inherit the fortune, and they realise Mary is a threat when she saves Davey from a murder attempt.
