Publisher Comments:

"Rich in historical detail...a superb story of grit, determination, and personal growth." —The Horn Book, starred review  

When ten-year-old Lyddie and her younger brother are hired out as servants to help pay off their family farm's debts, Lyddie is determined to find a way to reunite her family. Hearing about all the money a girl can make working in the textile mills in Lowell, Massachusetts, she makes her way there, only to find that her dreams of returning home may never come true. A story of determination and personal growth, Lyddie has already established itself as a classic.

Lyddie is full of life, full of lives, full of reality.” —The New York Times Book Review
