COUNTING ON GRACE by Elizabeth Winthrop

1910

North Pownal, Vermont

Twelve-year-old Grace and her best friend, Arthur, must leave school to work as doffers in the mill.  But Grace is left-handed.  Replacing full bobbins with empty ones is a right-handed job, and every mistake Grace makes costs her family precious pennies.

Grace knows that Arthur is hatching a desperate plan to get himself out of the mill.  She begs him to wait.  Something will come along to change their lives.
