Beyond Nab End by William Woodruff

An enthralling and complelling listen. About a young 16 year old who abandons the North where there is no work on the off chance he may get a job in a foundry in London and his stuggle to survive poverty and how he manges to educate himself and enter Oxford university. Read extremely well by Sam Kelly. Descriptive language is good. I can thoroughly recommend this audio book.
