The Iron Woman is a novel written by Margaret Deland and originally published in installments between 1910 and 1911.
Set in the nineteenth century in the town of Mercer, a fictional town representing Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania), the novel tells the story of the elderly and widowed Mrs. Maitland. She has a business with an iron mill that in principle should be inherited by her son Blair.
However, her son does not share his mother's values and puritanical work ethic, and she distances herself from him. In addition, he is in love with a young woman whose marriage his mother disapproves of.
With a slow and leisurely pace, the novel makes fantastic descriptions of the mills and the particular beauty in the processing of iron.
