The Convict's Wife:

She'll do whatever it takes to be reunited with her husband and keep her family together. When Molly Holden's husband, Thomas, is convicted of being a Luddite on the word of a secret informer, he is sentenced to be transported to Australia. Left with their baby daughter, Molly must find work to survive. But the man who informed on Thomas is a former suitor of Molly's, and Isaac believes that with Thomas out of the way she will return to him...

A Mother's Fight:

Will love be enough to protect her children? After her husband Jack is transported to Australia as a convict, Hannah and her children are sent to the workhouse. Hearing nothing from Jack and believing he's dead, when widower Ellis Duxbury asks her to marry him, Hannah reluctantly agrees. But now she is free of the workhouse, her children are unsafe - the scrupulous owner has sent them away for apprenticeships, and it's up to Hannah to track them down.

The Runaway Daughter:

A family torn apart. A daughter determined to stay together. When the parish guardians send Lydia, daughter of convict James Knowles, to be an apprentice in the cotton mill at Caton, she is distraught at being parted from her younger siblings and mother, Martha, but she has no choice. At the mill, Lydia is bullied by some of the other girls and things do not go well when she stands up to the ringleader.
