The Sandberg family arrive in England having fled Russia to avoid persecution. It is 1905, and in their new home of Manchester they soon discover that hardships can come in many forms. It's a friendship with their neighbours, the Moritz family, that finally makes them feel at ease.
As the two families' become increasingly intertwined, it is eldest son David who finds the culture of his new country encourages him to rebel against his mother's wishes. Sarah Sandberg has ruled the family with a quiet authority but now faces the challenge of a son who wants to shake off duty in his own desire for love and freedom.
In the years ahead, the Sandbergs will face even greater challenges. It is only their enduring spirit that sees them overcome the odds to find sanctity, and even joy, as they survive each twist and turn of life.
