CHILDREN Mill Girl (My Story): A Victorian Girl's Diary, 1842-1843

by Sue Reed (Author)

(Key Stage Two historical fiction) (Paperback)

In spring 1842 Eliza is shocked when she is sent to work in the Manchester cotton mills - the noisy, suffocating mills.

Although this is a fictional account it is based on fact and is written in an appealing and readable manner.
