The chance for a new life, the hope for a new love... Were they worth the risk of leaving home?_Would she have to defy everything -- even love? From her simple farm life in Vermont, Joanna bravely joins the growing number of girls working in the textile mills in 1896. With her she carries the painful memory of Jed, a young man who has left her, loving the sea more then he loves her. In the Lowell, Massachusetts, mill, Joanna is horrified to find the work both grueling and dangerous. Even a romance with the mill owner's roguish nephew, Theo, can't keep the daily work from becoming terrifying drudgery. To strike with the other mill women seems Joanna's only way out of a job that threatens her very existence. But defying the miller owner's will certainly mean losing her job and Theo. And if Jed ever returns from the sea, would he recognize -- could he love -- the new Joanna?
