Lyddie by Katherine Patterson (SIGNED Lodestar Books (Dutton Books), N.Y., 1991. Set in the 19th century, Lyddie is a young Vermont farm girl, whose life changes in the winter of 1843 when a bear breaks into their farm house causing family members to scatter. Lyddie journeys to Lowell, Massachusett where she works as a factory girl and lives in a crowded boarding house. The factory working conditions are appalling, the clatter of the looms, the murky lint-filled air, the close quarters and incessant coughing plus the mencing overseer. Lyddie innocently enough befriends a young girl, Diana whose radical ideas put Lyddie in jeopardy of losing her job, lodging and her family's future. Katherine Paterson is a master storyteller and offers the reader a searing, empathetic novel of a young girl dealing with 19th century social change.
