Hannah Francis and her mother are forced to move in to the workhouse. Even though it is a bleak existence for Hannah and her mother, Hannah cheers everyone up with her beautiful singing voice. Hannah has always tried to see the best in everything, and in everyone. When Hannah is 12 years old, she is sent to work in the nearby mill with three other children. The hours are long, and the work is extremely dangerous. The owner of the Mill is a tyrant, and has an eye for the young lasses. This is a story of triumph and determination. Hannah was not born in the lap of luxury, and has had to struggle everyday of her young life. But Hannah will not let that stop her from making something of her life, and helping those around her also succeed in life. This is a wonderful heartwarming story of the struggles and accomplishments of those who are determined to make something of their lives. This is Margaret Dickinson at her best!

After reading my first Margaret Dickinson book a few years ago I caught the bug & had to buy them all. This is another great addition to her list of titles & as she produces more books they get ever better. I could not put it down.

Set in the hey day of the cotton weaving industry where workers worked long hours for their bosses for little pay. It's the story of a girl born in hard times and her struggle to rise above her situation and reap revenge on her cruel and philandering boss.

When I ordered this book I hadn't realized that I had read it once before some time ago. I enjoyed reading it again and as always the author has highlighted the difficulties and cruelty that existed between the masters and the working class.

This was a fantastic book which I found hard to put down. I love Margaret Dickinson and have not read one book of hers which I would not recommend to someone looking for a really decent story.

This is about a young girl who is in the workhouse and is sent out to work in the mills where the conditons are deplorable.

I have read lots of Margaret Dickinson's books and liked them all, but for me this is the best yet. It gives an insight into what it was like in the workhouse and the cotton mills for families and especially children, and the awful conditions they endured. As always the characters are well drawn and very human, and the story line keeps you interested and wanting to know what happens next. I don't often give five stars in reviews but this one is well deserved.

Lovely story about a young child taken from the workhouse, and her mother, and made to work in the mills. You could feel the desolation and loneliness and her furtive attemps try to get a message to her mother who is still in the workshop. The condition in the mills were beyond belief but she meets some kind adults who try to help her. Life must have been so hard for the children during this period of history and this book makes you realise how lucky we are to live in the times we do. Of course, although she has to go through a lot, she makes good in the end. A pleasant read.
