Recommended by Kelley

Set in 1832, Alice Barrow leaves her family farm to join the ranks of working ʺmill girlsʺ.  She finds a place to call her own despite the horrid working conditions.  When an unexpected death of another of the mill girls is discovered the trial that follows shows how the lives of the wealthy mill owner cross over with the local professionals and the mill girls.  The trial has you cheering for the underdog as the cruel realities of life shine through.  Highly recommended; by the same author as ʺThe Dressmakerʺ.
