From the Publisher:

The Industrial Revolution was supposed to bring progress, but to Annie, who must give up her dream of becoming a teacher to work in the mill and pay off her father's debts, "progress" is not what it seems.

"A good introduction to a pivotal point in social history" (Kirkus Reviews ), this novel explores how technology changed the lives of people when the first mill was built in Connecticut.
