Paperback book. Never read however some yellow spotting due to being in storage.

Mercedes MacInnes is the young, attractive daughter of a respected doctor. Well brought up, sheltered from the harsh realities of working-class life, she nevertheless yearns to put the world to rights, to see her fellow women on an equal footing with men. So, she joins a voluntary organisation helping the female factory workers of London ...

Daisy Sitek is a beautiful, half-Polish widow, softer than most of her colleagues on the factory floor, and better at embroidery too. Sympathetic to all causes, she becomes friendly with Mercedes and introduces her to her lively brother Andrew.

Juggling the taunts of other workers, facing up to the brutality of the factory manager, and learning the value of friendship over class, Daisy and Mercedes strive to fight the injustices abounding in Edwardian England. But can the barriers be broken down enough to help them live with the men they love?

Absorbing and colourful, Crossing the River is a rich, realistic tale, and a splendid evocation of life at the beginning of the century. Please click here to ask a question
