There, amid the noise and bustle, the mills and manufactories of the clothing industry that have made Leeds one of England’s most prosperous cities, Blackie’s spark of ambition becomes a flame. Working in his Uncle’s business, he nurtures a dream of throwing off the impotence of poverty, of building houses and perhaps even of becoming a gentleman. And then, high on the Yorkshire moors, in the mists of a winter morning, he meets a kitchen maid called Emma Harte. And as the Victorian world gives way to the freedom of the Edwardian age, so a young man and a servant girl seize a chance, against the odds, to build a better life…
