About this title

Synopsis:

A chance discovery of a trunk of documents by author Sara Woodall opened up a window onto the rapidly expanding cities of Leeds and London in the nineteenth century. Cholera epidemics, Luddite disruptions, hopeless medical interventions, the birth of the railways, a discovery of a murder, the mystery of an ancestor believed to be the unknown great-great grandfather of renowned inventor Thomas Alva Edison, an unsettling great Quaker bank crash and travel in America newly recovering from the Civil War - all were intertwined with the painful life of  Leeds lawyer Edwin Eddison.
