A place to call home

Wood, Valerie2019
Books
A young family has to relocate from the countryside to Hull, looking for work. They find somewhere to live in the industrial part of the city, full of glue and tanning factories, paint manufacturers and back-to-back housing along the river - the sky is filled with acrid smoke. For young wife and mother Ellen, it's the complete opposite of what she's used to, but at least here her husband finds a job in a seed-crushing mill to support them and their small children. But there are many others in search of a home too - in the late nineteenth century many refugees were escaping from Poland and Germany, landing in Hull and either settling there or moving on to other cities or ships bound for America. Ellen befriends one family and offers them shelter.
