This book perfectly accompanies the television series, satisfying viewers' curiosity about the history of the children of Quarry Bank. It reveals the real lives of the television series' main characters - Esther, Daniel, Lucy, and Susannah - showing how shockingly close to the truth the dramatisation is. But the book also goes far beyond this to create a full and vivid picture of factory life in the industrial revolution.
David Hanson has written an accessible narrative history of Victorian working children and the conditions in which they worked.

Insightful and entertaining
Really enjoyed this book. A lot of information to take in so I actually listened to it twice but it delivers happy and sad stories from the days of the mill in an informative and entertaining way.
