Overview

Book 1 of THE BELLS OF LOWELL. The mill town of Lowell, Massachusetts, comes to life with intrigue and drama from the creative writing team of Judith Miller and Tracie Peterson. Young women at the end of the 19th century seek employment from driven men intent on transforming America's textile industry. Daughtersof the Loom features Lilly Armbruster, who is forced to work in the mills as her only means for survival. But Lilly's resentment runs deep against the "lords of the loom"--the men she believes have stolen her father's farm and caused his premature death. Her animosity happens to include Matthew Cheever, her childhood friend and one-time betrothed. Though separated by their opposing views about the future of the mill and the community that surrounds it, the emotions of their hearts still bind them. Will their dreams for the future allow their fragile love to survive?

I got this because it was a freebie friday. I chose to purchase the renaining two in the trilogy because it is fairly well written. Simple in its faith stance, but strong in belief, it follows not only the changing landscape of New England in the Industrial Revolution, but the changing roles of women that were also developing. You'll cheer for Lily and Matthew.

This book started out a bit slow for me, but as I pressed on I was able to get involved in the story. Not the "best" book I've read, but not as predictable as I first thought.

The story started well enough with the troubles of Lilly, however, the story developed slowly and without much depth of plot or characters. Even the romance between Lilly and Matthew barely kept my interest. Several good possible plots were hinted at, but never went anywhere. Also, it left several story lines dangling at the end which I found very discouraging and wanting another 25 or more pages for the authors to finish their story.
