Constance wants paid for the accident that destroyed their farm cart but instead she and her sisters get harassed and threatened by the head of a silk company. She takes steps to protect herself and her family.
I enjoyed this book. Constance and her sisters are unusual for the period in which they live. The story started slowly but picked up as Constance gets more involved in protecting her family and home as well as the mystery of what happened to a young silk worker's baby. Constance is smart and resourceful. She learns and is formidable. I liked her.
I will be reading more of this series.
