A comet shaped like a silver blade slashes the sky - Jem sees it as an omen of conflict and change, as the wheels of the Industrial Revolution gather speed.

The Luddites are rioting. Everywhere there is talk of rebellion. When machinery is brought to the local mill Jem knows where his loyalties lie.
