There are few bright spots in this account of the life faced by many girls in New England cities during the mid-nineteenth century, and most of what happened to the fictional character of Mary happened to various girls who lived back then and worked in factories and mills. When her mother's income from the boardinghouse no longer covers their expenses, year-old Rebecca helps out by working as a bobbin girl at the local textile mill.
