Can someone summarize chapters 7 and 8 or "Lyddie" please?

I'll be glad to give you a summary, but there's nothing better than reading the book for yourself! As a teacher, I want to make sure you don't rely solely on what other people tell you. That said.....
In chapter 7, Lyddie decides to go to Lowell, Mass., to find a job in a factory. Triphena gives her money so she can travel in a coach. When the coach gets stuck, Lyddie leads the other passengers (male, mind you) in setting it right. The coachman is impressed with Lyddie's ability to lead and takes her to his sister, Mrs. Bedlow, who runs a boardinghouse in Lowell.
In chapter 8, Mrs. Bedlow, who likes Lyddie, gives her money to buy new clothes and helps her get a job at a factory owned by the Concord Corporation. Lyddie has three roommates at the boardinghouse who all work at the same factory. Their names are Amelia, Prudence, and Betsy.
