Clara Kelley is not who they think she is. She's not the experienced Irish maid who was hired to work in one of Pittsburgh's grandest households. She's a poor farmer's daughter with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets. But the other woman with the same name has vanished, and pretending to be her just might get Clara some money to send back home.

Excellent book, good appropriate narrator. Great lead character, a strong women in early industrial times. Well written and enjoyed the authors notes on combining her family history and the Carnegie family history.
