Meet Anne Lister, the 19th Century landowner, industrialist, explorer, and lesbian, and your new feminist icon. This book is a remarkable and unlikely love story, set in the complex, changing world of Halifax - the cradle of the industrial revolution. These real-life historical diaries explore Anne's relationships at home with her family, her servants, her tenants, and her industrial rivals and are the inspiration for a BBC One series starring Suranne Jones.
I hope the BBC programme was better than the book.
