Three young women do what they must do to survive in a male-dominated world - In a poor copper-mining village, carpenter's daughter Amy Lewarne finds her life changed for ever when she discovers Toby, her missing brother, dead. Titus Kivell, head of a belligerent and reclusive family, feels it's time to break out into the swiftly expanding world of the Victorian era, and puts his wild son Sol in Toby's place. Amy and Sol are drawn to each other, but fate seems to conspire against them.
