By Catherine Cookson


Riah Millican came to regret that her husband had learned to read and write, and then shared his knowledge with her and their children. For this was Durham in the 1830?s, when employers regarded the spread of education with suspicion. But now Seth was dead and she needed to find a home and a living. Her new job as a housekeeper in Moor House with a scholarly recluse, started a chain reaction that should have opened many doors to her future but instead created many problems.
