The maid of Lindal Hall

Hutton, Katie2023
Barrow-in-Furness, 1933. The days of the Barrow Union at Roose are numbered and it is due be closed, along with all the other workhouses. Instead 'Cottage Homes' have been set up for pauper children, where they live under the care of a resident mother and father. Robert and Annie McClure are tasked with taking care of several children. A skilled tailor, Robert trains boys to his profession whilst his wife prepares the girls to go into service. Molly Dubber has been at the Home since the age of three, though she has never been told the truth about the terrible event that brought her there. When a request comes in for a new girl to work at Lindall Hall, Annie decides to put Molly forward. Resigned to the fact that her love for Annie's stepbrother is not requited, Molly takes up the position at the ramshackle hall. Then she finds herself with some unexpected attention - and an unwelcome visitor from her past.
