The first book in Bromley House Editions, reprinting important Nottinghamshire writers from the past.

Penny Lace is a gritty historical novel set in the lace industry. Mr. Penny, who works on the factory floor, hates the mill masters, so much so that he learns the trade and sets up on his own outside of Nottingham, outside of the reach of trade unions. He undercuts the old fashioned bosses, becoming a rich man
and marrying his old boss’s daughter.

Hilda Lewis is well known from her OUP children’s classic, The Ship that Flew. Several of her other historical fiction books are now available from The History Press/NPI.
