Wonderful drama of a woman's struggle from birth as bastard child in a remote poverty stricken farming community through years of toil and mistreatment up through the ranks in a brothel and then down the other side again. Not a sad or pitiable character, though, she adapts, she adjusts and she is able to manage and even triumph in each new circumstance.
