(Different cover)

Shirley is seg among the cloth mills of the author's native Yorkshire and she succeeds brilliantly in creating the full drama of the latter part of the Napolonic Wars when labour-saving machinery was smashed by desperate, unemployed workers. Rich in historical detail, Shirley is a hyman as well as a social novel with a perpetual relevance in its exploration of humanity's efforts to reconcile personal and economic aspirations with social justice and harmony.
