Book description

"It's 1888. Florence works as a match girl, in dangerous factory conditions. There's talk of a strike, but striking means no work... and no pay. Meanwhile, a young journalist is keen to hear Florence's story–women have never gone on strike before! But is he just stirring up trouble to sell newspapers...?"
