1938. Mrs Miriam Baxter, an ordinary housewife and mother of two small children, committed a misdemeanour in the form of theft. Her punishment was to be imprisoned in the infamous woman's gaol, Holloway, House of Correction, North London.

Placed with the type of women, with whom she had never been in contact, Miriam has to learn to survive in a harsh environment that took away her freedom, her family and everything she had ever known.

Written with the help of authentic documents of the period, A Year In Holloway, details exactly what it would have been like to suffer imprisonment in a woman's prison just before the beginning of the Second World War.
