More info

Georgina Corrigan is worried. The first women sent to her Percy Place 

home by the BOBs – an organisation which supports women escaping

difficult home lives – are ready to step out into the world again.

Some have found opportunities in Dublin, others will travel

across the sea to New York.

 

Will those travelling to America find employment with the Harvey

Company? Thousands try every year to become Harvey Girls – young women 

who serve in restaurants and hotels set up to serve travellers on the 

Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe railway line. Will they

be successful when so many fail?

 

Meanwhile, at home complications multiply. Georgina is surprised when 

a strange young man appears, claiming the BOBs have sent him – but 

shocked when he reveals why. Then Flora Kilroy escapes a life of 

virtual slavery and appears on Georgina’s doorstep, claiming to be a 

  1.   What can Georgina do? She is helping strangers – she can’t 

turn family away.

 

As the people who serve in the house struggle to meet the demands of 

each new arrival, Georgina wonders if she will ever know peace again.

 

The women of Percy Place greet each new day with fortitude.

Failure is not an option. They are determined that they can,

and will, not only survive but thrive.
