Molly Thomas is a feisty, independent soul, born on the Winter Solstice. At every stage of her life she has faced troubles.

 

As a young woman her family are evicted from their home at Christmas. Molly swears vengeance on the jealous neighbour and land agent responsible, Flann Montgomery.

 

Then in 1896 her baby son is taken from his pram. Molly searches the streets for Oliver. The police are called but her baby is gone.

 

Why does trouble seem to follow Molly? And will she ever find out what happened to her child?

 

December Girl is a tale of family bonds, love, revenge and murder.
