Life and love in a
Lancashire mill town
When Captain Merridene dies, his daughters Martha and Penelope are left penniless. They take a job offer – as teachers, working for mill owner Jonas Wright, charged with educating not only Jonas’s four young daughters but also the more promising mill workers. Soon they realise life will be more complicated than they had bargained for.
Penelope meets disgruntled worker Clem Porter, whose family have been brought to starvation by a rival mill owner. Martha is drawn – against her better judgement – to Ben Seaton, the father of one of her students. But why is Ben attracted to such a seemingly stern woman…?
Facing hardships and challenges in their new lives, will the sisters find time for romance?
