The fine spring evening had brought all the women to the doors of their cottages, each with a distaff tucked under her arm, busily dropping, twisting, and winding up a spindle as she gossiped. (p. 31)

Got to read Cynthia Harnett's The Wool Pack and thoroughly enjoyed the novel. Great details about life and wool in the Cotswolds in the 1400s. Satisfying plot. Published by Puffin, which took me back to my childhood when I practically lived at the library and so many of their kids' books were from Britain.
