Once she is settled in the mill, Hannah discovers that the hours of work are long, and the daily routine is dangerous, arduous, and harsh, but her bright singing and capacity for joy lighten the load for everyone. Hannah soon becomes a favourite with the other mill workers. Friendships are forged and an innocent love starts to blossom. But can such a fragile love survive cruel reality?
It is not long before she attracts the eye of Edmund Critchlow, the man who owns them all, body and soul - the man from whom no pretty mill girl is safe. Times are hard in the cotton industry as civil war rages across America affecting even the mill owner and the lives of all his workers....

Excellent book, with a story which will touch your heart. Hannah had to go in the workhouse with her Mother, it wasn't long before she was sent to work at a mill, with a very cruel man in charge. You hear how Hannah coped with the highs & lows of life there, running away when it just got too bad, but she would return years later to get her revenge
