Set in the late 18th century and illustrated with contemporary engravings, this is the story of Minnie Dakin, the youngest of the ropemaker's daughters. She lives with her family - and a whole community - underground, in a huge cave in Derbyshire. The life she leads is hard but not unhappy. The family is split, though, when her sister, Netty, gets married and goes to live in Sheffield. After a while, Minnie goes to join, when news comes through that Netty is seriously ill. Experiencing a large town for the first time, Minnie is shocked and appalled by what she finds. It is the beginning of the Industrial Revolution - working conditions are harsh, the debtors' prison is full, the enclosure of common land threatens poverty, squalor and injustice, which tests Minnie's courage and strength to the full. Theresa Tomlinson has also written "The Water Cat", "Summer Witches" (also entitled "A Secret Place"), "The Flither Pickers" and "Riding the Waves" (commended for the 1991 Carnegie Medal).

Review:

"Theresa Tomlinson is among the strongest of a younger generation of historical novelists." -"Financial Times"

About the Author:

Theresa Tomlinson was born in Sussex. The daughter of a vicar, she spent her early childhood in various places in the north of England. As a child she had no interest in writing, but she loved reading. Her main interest was drawing and painting. She attended Hull College of Art, and later trained as a teacher at Hull College of Education. She taught as an infant teacher for five years Theresa and her husband live in Whitby, North Yorkshire, where Theresa spent her childhood. Over the years she has acquired an outstanding reputation for her historical novels, particularly those, like Wolf Girl, set on the north-east coast of England. Shortlisted twice for the Carnegie Medal and for the Sheffield Children's Book Award, Theresa takes a keen interest in the area where she lives. Recent visits to Turkey have fuelled her enthusiasm for the ancient mythology of that part of the world. Her scrupulous research has resulted in two epic stories, The Moon Riders and Voyage of the Snake Lady.
