Most enjoyable audio book.

I really enjoyed this book. It is set in the Englitsh Midlands in the 1800s when children and adults worked long hours in the mill or mine for. low wages. Fortunate to be part of a happy though poor family, Marianne 's strong character comes to the fore when an incident at the mill sets her on a path that will change her life. She is presented with many challenges as the story progresses and will need every ounce of courage she possesses. I absolutely loved the narration by Charie Sanderson. She has a real gift for storytelling and her ability to use regional accents is so good. She certainly did justice to Rosie Goodwin 's lovely book.
