Explores the pushpull of received histories, of forces we can’t control no matter how hard we try

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.

CINDY VEACH received an MFA from the University of Oregon. Her poetry has appeared in Chicago Review, Prairie Schooner, Poet Lore, The Journal, the North American Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Valparaiso Poetry Review, Crab Creek Review, and others. She is also an award-winning quilter whose work was selected to tour with the Smithsonian. She manages fundraising programs for nonprofit organizations and lives in Manchester, Massachusetts.
