Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Rachel Smedling is not like the other women in her isolated Pennine village: she is taller, stronger and weaves cloth like a man. Without her, the household would fall apart, for her mother is ailing and her vicious drunkard father seems to hate her so much, he would happily offer money to any man who would wed her. When her mother dies, Rachel is at the mercy of her increasingly violent father. Her only escape is marrying a kindly man with whom she finds happiness, if not passion. Rachel's prosperity infuriates her father and his cronies, who will stop at nothing to see her destroyed.
