    When Margaret Hale's father leaves the Anglican Church in a crisis of conscience, she and her family are uprooted from their comfortable home in Hampshire to move to the north of England. At first repulsed by the hideousness of her new surroundings in the industrial town of Milton, Margaret becomes aware of the suffering and poverty of the local mill workers and is stirred by a passionate sense of social justice. This is complicated by her tempestuous relationship with the mill's owner and self-made man, John Thornton.
