Gloved Against Blood

This collection explores the fraught relationships of four generations of women against a backdrop of the patriarchal textile mills of 19th century Lowell, Massachusetts. It speaks to family, infidelities, abandonment and the close work, women’s work of mending what is torn, making it like new despite the forces of inherited histories.
