A book hard to put down. Every page held my interest. Well written. I have never before heard of the Lowell Mills, so it's been a new topic for me. Kate Alcott manages descriptions and historical fact in an interesting way. The story line is interesting and keeps you glued to the book. I really enjoyed it. Thumbs up.

This is a fictionalized account of the lives of the “mill girls” of Lowell, Massachusetts. The story touches on the long hours, dangerous equipment and low pay that these women endured and their subsequent fight for safer working conditions. It also includes a murder and trial which are based on actual events. An enjoyable read despite a somewhat improbable romance.
