So when the buxom Anna McCauley begs Lessie to help disguise the fact that one of her clients has passed away in her bed, Lessie is more than reluctant to get involved. But, soft-hearted as ever, she does and, because shes desperate to buy medicine for her sick toddler, accepts the twenty shillings Anna forces on her, promising herself one day shell pay her back.But keeping that promise is not easy and from the day she accepts the money the fates of Lessie and her beloved younger brother Davie are inextricably intertwined with Annas. And also with the family of her deceased client who, it turns out, is none other than Frank Warren, the prosperous sugar refinery owner whose nephew Andrew is one of the most attractive and powerful men on Clydeside.
