The Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott

Well, with The Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott I did something a little different. I listened to the audio book of this historical fiction book instead of reading the physical book. This was an excellent book for this purpose because the reader really brought this book to life. She even made the male voices distinctive and believable. 

When I had to wear my eye patch with the shingles, it really messed with my up close tasks like reading so I was glad I downloaded this audio book. Do you ever listen to audio books or do you read a physical book or read on a tablet or ereader?

Set in the 1830s in Lowell and Boston, Massachusetts, The Daring Ladies of Lowell told the story of several of the female textile mill workers and the wealthy mill owner. A murder and death from the poor working conditions in the mills rounded out this story. 

The Christian Science Monitor said that The Daring Ladies of Lowell "Offers  up a compelling slice of both feminist and Industrial Age history."
