Cotton was no longer King and Manchester’s mills remained idle. The Etherow-O’Donnell and Akroyd families find themselves battling against a new enemy – a lack of work and widespread starvation. Famine stalked the land as the forces of the Confederacy and the Union battled it out in a war between Americans – brother against brother – father against son.
The outcome of the Civil War would determine the future of the U.S. – whether democracy and liberty would triumph, or a new Confederate States of America emerge – a separate country with a government based on chattel-slavery and despotism.
Just as Americans found themselves divided, so too did the antagonistic classes in the cotton-manufacturing region of England.
Once again the author skilfully weaves his weft of fiction into the warp of historical reality. An exciting read from start to finish.
