What is Gentleman Jack about?

Set in 1832, the brilliant, endearing Miss Anne Lister leaves Hastings brokenhearted and heads to the lush landscape of Halifax, West Yorkshire, England, to restore her uncle's estate that she's inherited. While restoring the estate she finds that the family land has a coal mine and finds that it's being stolen by two brothers.

This newly instated, unusual lady landowner and landlord encounters a potentially blossoming and dangerous romance with another woman, which she records in a cryptic diary that no one can decode.
