From the moment Danny first saw Angel he was enchanted by her beauty. By the time she was fourteen - a woman with a child's face, long golden hair and sleepy violet-blue eyes - Danny had completely fallen in love with her and dreamed of making her his wife.
But Angel was not interested in Danny. Angel loved Johnny Quinn - but Johnny, training to be a boxer, didn't even notice her.
When Angel's pursuit of Johnny ends in disaster and disgrace she leaves for Dublin and thinks her life couldn't possibly be worse. But Fortune has only just begun to turn her wheel, and Angel soon finds that she has a lot further to fall before she can find lasting happiness...
