Life is unbelievably cruel to Tilly, a young girl orphaned at the age of 10—raised in a convent, then placed into service on a dairy farm. Tilly marries Jim, and together they raise 9 children. At the Tin House, where they live, friends and relatives gather for laughter, bonfires and games of rounder and tracking in the fields, the kettle is always on for a cuppa, and no one ever goes hungry.
