This is the first book by this author that I've read and it was an ok read. A bit on the Catherine Cookson style.

Back Cover Blurb:
An independent, bonnie lass, Katy flees the drunken wrath of her father and gets a job with the Ashleigh family in a warehouse in Newcastle upon Tyne. But when young Charles pays her attention, Katy is forced to work for a dishonest haulage company in Sunderland.
Rescued by a glamorous but evil conman, Katy once more finds herself on the streets, this time with child. She is taken in by Matt Ballard who runs a rival haulage company. But trouble lies ahead. As the business prospers and Katy begins to realise where her heart lies, jealous rivals and the winds of war all conspire against her future happiness. ( )
