Join author Flora Ann Scearce as she shares her own mother's story, a story of life and learning, but more importantly a story of love and finding one's self during a time when the only thing constant in the world was change.

This is a good story about a young woman and her family during the Industrial Revolution. This is a story of a young girl during the turn of the 20th C who suffered poverty, the loss of her mother and the longing to rise above her poor conditions. The last thing she wanted was to have to go to work in the Cotton Mill but her circumstances didn't leave her any choice. The sadness of seeing this bright young woman having to give into this reality will break your heart. But the strength and courage of this young woman who discovers the writing of poetry to fulfill her need for beauty in her life shows the possibilities of the human spirit to rise above the adversities of life. I recommend this book to anyone but especially young adults who will gain a knowledge of the history of that time and the people who lived it. This is a wonderful book!

Before reading this story you must read "Singer of an Empty Day. Cotton Mill Girl was heartwarming, sad and wonderfully written. I don't like reading--but I couldn't put either of these books down. I want to visit the places where "Sippy" lived and grew up--I feel like I know her and her family. The author makes you love them.

Flora Ann Scearce could have been writing about my own Grandmother. My Grandmother lived in Rockingham, NC; went to work in the mills in 1900 at age 8; married at 16 and moved around North and South Carolina with her husband who worked in the carding room of the mills. They settled in Gastonia in the 1930's and bought a mill village house. Their house was behind the Armstrong mill. This is a wonderfully researched book. I couldn't put this book down.

very pleased
As you might have noticed I have the same last name as the author. My uncle gave me a copy of this book upon seeing the author had my last name, just for fun. I finally got around to reading it a few months after receiving it as a Christmas gift and was completely sucked in! I finished it in two days. I couldn't put it down! I will admit the first chapter or so was harder to get through than the rest, but once I moved past the beginning the book really picked up and I fell in love. I even wrote to the author. Maybe I just have a soft spot for historical stories, but I truly think this is a great book. And it's based on the author's own mother! Pretty cool stuff. Oh, did I mention I'm 18? Give this to your kids, all you adults out there.
