ABOUT THE BOOK: In 1837, seven-year-old Thomas Wright followed in the family footsteps into one of England’s most dangerous coal mines. He struggled with childhood fears, working twelve-hour days, six days a week in the darkness 500-feet below ground. That was until disaster struck, taking the lives of his boyhood friends in one of England’s most horrific accidents that changed the direction of his life and the course of history.
This is the fast-moving story of a young boy overcoming the iron-fisted rule of the massively wealthy lord of the land, who not only owned much of South Yorkshire’s coal mines, and the villages in which the miners lived, but the mortgages on their lives. With the help of his family, he confronts the tyrannical system of industrial slavery, His Lordship’s brutal psychopathic enforcer, and a society that fostered the oppression of the working class. From his desperate beginnings, we follow Tom on a path to a brilliant career, his love affairs with two strong-willed women, and his courageous fight to help change industrial slavery of the working class.
