Dark Satanic Mill

Miles Craven

Craven releases new historical novel set against a dramatic backdrop of Luddite riots and Napoleonic Wars.

Cheshire 1813. Craven’s thrilling historical novel follows Robbie Enright, a teenaged orphan indentured at a remote cotton-spinning mill called Providence, owned by the eminent Samuel Stead. When several of the female hands disappear, supposedly to escape the harsh discipline, Robbie is forced to contend with the mill’s authorities.

Bright and courageous, Robbie has no resources and only one friend: Ned Wainwright, a notorious Luddite and a wanted man. He is determined to expose the truth — not least because he’s fallen in love with the mill’s newest arrival, pretty Mary Pepper.

Craven’s style of writing is ambitious, skilful and daring, and is sure to leave readers immersed in the action and suspense as they urge young Robbie to beat the odds and expose the mill’s dark secret for all to see.
