Lyddie was overworking herself even when she was hungry and tired. Proven on page 88, "She must work harder. She must earn all the money to pay what they owed, so she could gather her family together back on the farm while she still had family left to gather." This supports the statement because she was mentally pushing herself.
When Lyddie came back from her one day vacation she came back to an angry Mistress Cutler. Triphena in the back felt sorry for Lyddie. This was proven on page 44, ""So! You've decided to honor us with a visit!" The mistress was red with heat or rage." This proves my statement by stating that the Mistress got extremely mad for her absence. She wasn't supposed to leave like she did.
A lot of people judged her clothes and looks, this was proven on page 48, "And still, when the others weren't concentrating on keeping their seats in the swaying coach, they were looking at her--At her clothes especially." This supports the statement because in the quote it states that people were judging her clothes when Lyddie was heading to the factory , she was riding in a carriage and the passengers on it were judging her on her looks .
