Summary
`Pearl in a Cage' ended in May 1939 when, just 15 years old, Jenny Morrison fled Woody Creek for a new life in Melbourne. She left behind a dysfunctional family, a town of small-minded gossips and, most tragically, a newborn baby - the product of a vicious rape. Yet just months later she is back -wiser and with an expensive new wardrobe - but with a second child growing in her belly. Cruelly labelled the `town slut', she finds refuge in Gertrude, her kind-hearted, dependable granny and settles into a routine in the ever-expanding household. Jenny thrives and, daring once again to dream, leaves Woody Creek again and moves to Sydney, where at last it seems that the beautiful young songstress may find happiness. But can the past ever truly be buried? And will Jenny Morrison ever fulfil her destiny?
