Take a peek at the newest large print books we have:


Daring LadiesThe Daring Ladies of Lowell by Kate Alcott

Eager to escape life on her family’s farm, Alice Barrow moves to Lowell in 1832 and throws herself into the hard work demanded of “the mill girls.”  In spite of the long hours, she discovers a vibrant new life and a true friend—a saucy, strong-willed girl name Lovey Cornell.  But conditions at the factory become increasingly dangerous, and Alice finds the courage to represent the workers and their grievances.  Although mill owner, Hiram Fiske, pays no heed, Alice attracts the attention of his eldest son, the handsome and reserved Samuel Fiske. Their mutual attraction is intense, tempting Alice to dream of a different future for herself.


BurnBurn by Julianna Baggott

Inside the Dome, Partridge, having taken his father’s place as leader of the Pures, realizes that things are not as clear as he thought while outside, Pressia and Bradwell continue their efforts to heal the Wretches, unsure if they can still trust their friend Partridge.
