The Bottle Factory Outing by Beryl Bainbridge

A short but powerful book about two young English women who work for an Italian wine manufacturer in London.  The girls arrange a factory outing to the countryside and the event has life changing consequences for the factory workers who attend.  The writing is excellent and the plot wonderfully observed.  The novel describes the heart breaking implications of misunderstandings and miscommunications in a touching and sometimes humorous way.  I very much enjoyed this book.
