Prudence Watson is heart broken, she fell in love with a American blacksmith, who is totally not on her society level. Declaring she will never wed, and traveling the countryside with her recently widowed sister, Prudence is pickpocketed by a young mill worker.

Finding a cause to champion for, Prudence plays with fire, flirting and using her feminine wiles on the owner of the mill. Joining the mill workers under disguise as one of them, she fights for better working conditions for the children and the adults in the mill, better meals and clean air.

The dangers of the mill are mild, compared to the danger Pru finds her heart in. She is falling in love with a cad. Follow this story, be amazed at the lengths Prudence goes to, in order to champion her cause.

A bit slow to get into, but once I was able to get into the book, it was a delightful story. I truly enjoyed the book. 382 pqges $12.99 US 4 stars
