When Evangeline is sent to live in a small mill town in Northern England as a schoolteacher in 1871, she finds herself struggling to fit in with an unfamiliar culture. Raised with the high-class Victorian values and ideals of a sophisticated upbringing, she is unprepared for the poverty she finds in the gritty factory town of Smeatley, where the locals speak with a hard-to-understand Yorkshire accent and struggle to thrive with few resources or opportunities.

Though she has no training as a teacher, she must prove herself successful before her grandfather will release her substantial inheritance to her and allow her to be reunited with her younger sister, the last remaining member of her family after a fever claimed the lives of her parents and brothers.

Evangeline's sudden change in circumstances is complicated when her aunta woman who values class distinctions more than her family relationshipsforbids her from acknowledging any connection to her or to her grandfather, Mr. Farrthe man who owns nearly the entire town. For the first time in her life, Evangeline is truly alone.

Heartbroken, she turns to the one person in town who has shown her kindnessan Irish brick mason, Dermot, and his son, Ronan. Despite the difference in their classes and backgrounds, Evangeline and Dermot become friends, due in part to her ability to connect with Ronan, whose behavior requires special attention. The boy is uncomfortable around strangers and rarely even speaks to the other children in town. He often fixates on details other people ignore, and he adheres to specific, self-made rules that give his life order and structure; for example, Dermot's coat must be hung on a specific peg next to the door.

Evangeline attempts to prove herself a worthy teacher and earn the respect of her hard-to-understand students. Determined to find a way to introduce them to "proper English" while still honoring their unique language and culture, she enlists the help of a local family to write down familiar stories in the Yorkshire vernacular. Because of her efforts, the students and their families warm to Evangeline and she continues to look for ways to give the children a chance to become more than factory workers in the local cotton mill.

When the town learns of her upper-class status, Evangeline must work twice as hard to win back their trustespecially Dermot's. In the end, Evangeline and Dermot discover that, even though they come from different social spheres, together they can overcome social prejudices, make a positive difference in the lives of even the humblest people, and enjoy the strength that comes when two hearts find each other.

Ashes on the Moor is the inspiring love story of one Victorian woman's courage to fight against all odds, and the man whose quiet strength gives her the confidence to keep trying.

Fantastic book!

This is an amazing story of a young woman blooming into adulthood. The main character, Evangeline is a beautiful person inside and out. She faces many challenges but she never shirks from responsibility. Dermont is complex and intriguing. Ronan is a quiet, reserved boy who learns to find his voice.
"Seems to me you're needing to decide if a small difference is a difference worth making, if changing just one life for the better or changing a mere dozen would be a waste of your time" Dermont says this to Evangeline when she becomes discouraged. She has lost everything and has been thrown into a situation that she wasn't prepared for. She must find it within herself to persevere and become who she is meant to be.

2nd read- I recommended this to someone so I reread it in case she wanted to discuss it. It's a nice book with good character growth, and a very slow building romance. It's a clean romance, (which isn't my typical) but their relationship is still nice. It's kind of a 'coming of age' story where circumstances test the metal of the heroine and kind of forces her to come into her own. The narration on the audiobook is fun with all the accents. ( )

I really liked the characters overcoming any trust issues and the cover is the most adorable thing! ( )

I devoured this. The romance is mild, but I didn't mind because it was oh so sweet. Like, "Darcy helping Lizzy into the carriage ungloved and stretching his fingers" sweet. Dermot is a prime example of a hero with a hard exterior with a soft interior (he even gives her cooking lessons!). And I was so proud of Evangeline for really coming into her own. As she says, "A lady may do as she is told, but this woman will do as she must." And little Ronan is so very precious, as well. I'll be looking for more from this author. ( )

1871: Victorian heiresses Evangeline and Lucy Blake have just lost their parents and brothers. Newly orphaned, they are collected by their aunt and uncle and separated. Compulsory state education was introduced in 1870 and Evangeline is given a job as a schoolteacher in Yorkshire mill town Smeatley, and is told she must succeed in order to claim her inheritance from her grandfather and be reunited with Lucy who has been sent to boarding school. But Evangeline doesn't know the first thing about teaching or everyday tasks such as cooking etc. Irishman and brick mason Dermot McCormick is raising an autistic boy, Ronan, while leading a gang of bricklayers in the town. He knows what it feels like to be on the outside and in a gesture of friendship agrees that Evangeline can knock on his door once a day for help, and is soon showing her how to cook in exchange for her teaching Ronan. Evangeline figures out how to teach the children to read, and comes to appreciate the Yorkshire dialect, starting to recording stories to help the children learn to read easier. The children and their families have a hard life, struggling to find enough food to eat and being sent to the textile mill to work where conditions are brutal. The mill is owned by Evangeline's grandfather and when the townspeople learn of the relationship, she loses their trust. Can she win it back, especially Dermot's, and does she have the courage to confront her grandfather about the working conditions at the textile mill? Great character development and a well researched history. ( )
