There was a conflict with content. Daisy was 13 when the book began. At that time she, her sister and her mother were working16 hours per day in the cotton factory. That had to before 1844. That year a law was passed to limit the time anyone 18 or younger could work in a factory to 12 hours on a weekday and 10 hours on Saturday.
Daisy also said that she had gone to the Ragged School before her father left the family, which was when Daisy was 7. The Ragged School in London was started in April 1844. If Daisy was working at the factory at age 13 before 1844, she could not have attended the Ragged School at all, much less when she was younger than 7.
The book was very short so there was not a lot of room for character development, especially when it came to the doctor who took care of Daisy’s mother. I found it hard to believe there was an attraction between the doctor and Daisy - mainly on his part.
All in all it was an okay read but needs a bit of polish and correction in the storyline to accommodate the conflict in dates.
