Ruth Appleby Summary

At 12, Ruth Appleby stood by her mother's grave on a bleak Yorkshire moor. Life as the daughter of a Victorian millhand had never been easy, but now she was both mother and housekeeper to the little family left behind. As one tribulation after another beset her life, so a longing, a determination, grew - to venture out into a new world of independence and adventure.
