Sadie Smith, born with a degenerative hip, is unable to walk. Sent to a Dr Barnardo’s home for treatment, she is so excited that she fails to realise she will never see her beloved family again.

In 1927, once fully cured, Sadie is offered the opportunity of a lifetime; to start a new life in Canada. But when she arrives at the Trikhardts’ farm in the heart of Ontario, her new life seems far from perfect. Worked from dawn to dusk, she treasures the scarlet ribbons her mother gave her and seeks solace in her friendship with fellow orphan, cheeky-faced Robbie.

A freak hurricane finally provides Sadie with a lucky escape. From Canadian parlourmaid to pilot in Britain’s Air Transport Auxillary, from office clerk to managing director, Sadie has to draw on her courage and strength in a determined struggle to find the lasting happiness that had eluded her as a child.
