As I often find with Dickens' novels this was a difficult read in parts, due no doubt to the rather archaic literary language of the times; but it was completely absorbing throughout. Although I knew most of the characters before I met them along the ...more

“Your future - take it, shake it, MAKE IT happen for you!”
G J Griffiths

“The majority of the ruling classes did not save their blame and recriminations just for those working class people who were able to walk away from St. Peter’s Fields free of injury. Many of the wounded did not seek medical treatment for they were certain that it would invite retribution from the authorities. Rumours of such a spiteful attitude had a strong basis in fact.

Despite the pain and the temptation to swoon again into a state of unconsciousness Thomas and Jacob shook their heads, just a little, as much as the soreness would allow.
‘Oh, no, sir; our cause is just. We mun stick together an’ demand the vote an’ better workin’ conditions,’ answered Jacob.
‘While them laws as keeps the price o’ bread up too ’igh is there we gotter keep goin’, sir. Folks is starving’ while wages is pressed down by factory owners,’ added Thomas.”
G.J. Griffiths

“Parts of her that had been separated for transit were still in limbo, unwrapping, trying to find their way home to her body.
