A casual visit by Viscount Holly and a friend to a ball brings him into the company of Dinah
Driffield, daughter of a gentleman of business. While his friend finds the locals beneath him, Viscount Holly does not and becomes aware of a growing attraction for Dinah. Dinah does her best to keep from becoming interested in the viscount or letting it show that she is aware of him. But the best laid plans can go awry when the heart rules the head. A fun read set in the time when manufacturers of cloth were moving from hand weaving by their employees to larger, faster looms and the troubles that accompanied the changes this forced upon the workers and employers alike. The strikes brought retaliation and hangings of some workers when damage was done to businesses. Turbulence and change make a fascinating background for this romance between people separated by social barriers of the classes. Drawn from the imagination of talented author, Lesley-Anne McLeod, this tale will keep you reading, wondering will happen next. Lots of action as lived by well drawn characters. Enjoy. Highly recommended.
