North and South: A Tale with a Slight Twist
Hannah Hale has fled for her life to Milton and is now staying with the Thorntons, a well to do, mill running, Milton family. What awaits her in Milton is a huge surprise.
The Hale family moves from Helstone to Milton on a matter of conscious and begin a new life for themselves in the cotton manufacturing town in the north of England. While there they meet the Thorntons and form a delicate acquaintance with the family. What they learn while there is a quite unexpected.
Through all of this, sparks fly between John Thornton and Margaret Hale, though not in the way people would expect and Hannah is faced with several challenges, one of which is remaining safe from something in her past.
