Cassandra Campbell gives a heartfelt narration of this story of love and determination. In the early 1800s, Alice Barrow escapes farm life to live in Lowell, Massachusetts, and work in a textile factory. When one of the girls turns up dead, the rest band together to prove their friend was murdered. Campbell's performance is elegant and well paced. Whether she’s portraying the determined Alice, her wild and reckless friend, Lovey, the ruthless Mr. Fiske, or his older and charming mother, Campbell's accents and characterizations are spot-on and believable. This glimpse of what nineteenth-century American factory workers, especially women, faced is illuminating. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2014]
