Yet another had been brutalised as a girl and her story is well written, you become witness to her evolving use of English as she recounts her story. One of them is a socialist looking to reform the world and the other comes to the household more animal than human.Little is known about the real ‘virgins’, but here Rogers gives them a voice and a power they clearly didn’t have in life. I found it convincing, at least as much as any fictional projection of a lost past can be, from the very different times in which we now live.

They intended to build a wall around the town with four gateways, and although the wall was never constructed, the four gatehouses were, as was a printing press.

When Hannah tells him she has no faith, he not only talks to her openly about his own doubts, but also allows her to attend Owenite meetings in the town.

During these periods, Wroe said, many remarkable events were foretold and revealed to him: the Spirit told him to relinquish his worldly employment, so he devoted his life to travelling and preaching, where he gained many followers and persuaded them that he was a messenger of God.

Don’t get me wrong, there were passages when I was gripped by descriptions of demonstrations and strikes by millworkers, by court room scenes, and scenes of a sexual nature. I enjoyed this rather dark, sad tale of an 1830s religious sect, led by a prophet, the Mr Wroe of the title, who had seven 'virgins' to run his household. It was only when I tried to find that series on DVD that I realised it came from a book and, as the series hasn’t been released, I decided to read the book. Rogers, who has four previously published novels, tells her tale in the voices of four of the seven women.I certainly do not understand why such a (at the time) highly acclaimed miniseries has been allowed to fade away from memory, receiving no release to DVD.
