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.

“A memorable portrait of an untutored but intelligent young woman making her way against fierce odds.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

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