Call The Darkness Light is an epic novel of a young woman's passionate struggle for independence in 19th century America.
Set in Massachusetts during the two decades before the Civil War, the novel tells the story of Sabra Palfrey - a Lowell "mill girl" who with her sister weavers and spinners was one of the first generation of American women to work and live apart from the traditional patriarchal family. It encompasses an entire panorama of nineteenth century New England: the Utopian dreamers; adherents of new religions like the Shakers and MIllenarians; the abolitionists; and the onrushing immigrants from war-torn, starving Europe - Irish, German and others.

Publishers Weekly
