Kurzbeschreibung

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?

Synopsis

Lilly plans to take revenge against the wealthy mill owners for her father's death and stealing his farm until she discovers Matthew Cheever is involved.

Always interested in historical novels I started reading this one. It didn't take long for me to get caught by the plot. I wanted to see what would happen. To expect language of the period, similar to Jane Austen's genius was probably too much. I got so mad at the modern americanisms I wanted to stop reading hundreds of times. The description of the working world of the early 19th century was only correct in parts depicting the work in the mills. The girls seemed to have leisure time in the evening and even have the energy to go to town. They never seemed to lack money. I am sure the 12-hour working days left them with exhausted, but this was not portrayed at all. Some characters seemed far too modern in their attitudes as well, not at all like you would have expected from people of the period So the whole book was a disappointment to me. Two stars for the plot

2.0 von 5 Sternen Lilly Sells Out 22. August 2004
Von E. Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm a sucker for a good historical romance, and I'm mildly obsessed with the Lowell mills. Sadly, this book failed to satisfy either of my passions. The writing is clunky and the historical accuracy dubious in places. The religious messages seem awkwardly inserted and more appropriate to modern Christianity than that of the 1820s. And Lilly is an unsympathetic heroine who causes a near-fatal accident--to which she never confesses and doesn't even seem very sorry about--in her misguided attempt to bring down the mills, and then happily abandons all notion of doing anything to improve the lives of the mill girls once she gets married. This book had the potential to make some important points about the consequences of industrialization, but it, like Lilly, gave up that notion in the pursuit of romance. Hooray for internal improvements!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Dissapointed 30. August 2004
Von Maureen Noonan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I read another story by Tracie Peterson and enjoyed it. When I started reading this book I was so excited. I was really enjoying it. The last fourth of the book was extremely dissapointing. The issues that were brought up were hardly even dealt with, all the way from the Mills to the lousy and unbelievable reconcile with her brother.

Lilly starts off feeling that the Mills have had horrible consequences for her family and others. By the end, without too much thought in between, she decides that she sees the good that has come from them. Never mind, that she sees this after she herself no longer has to work in the Mills.

Yes, there was some good for some people who benefited from the Mills. And she did get one of the supervisors who was molesting some of the girls to stop (although that is a bit unbelievable).

There is still an issue of 8 girls in the rooms of the boarding house and four to a bed. The issue that the Windows are nailed shut without care to what the humidity does to some of their employees and if there was a fire!! That they are worked twleve hours a day, six days a week for little pay. These issues are not resolved. The Mills end up looking like salvation. Granted, farm life is not easy and can be extremely hard but the Mills is not paradise.

I agree with one other review that felt the moral of the book was that it was all great because she herself gets married? I strongly disagree.

Some of the characters, particularly Miss Addie, are very likeable including Lilly. Though with Lilly, I can never quite get past the fact that she never admits her almost fatal mistake to anyone, not even her friend whom she hurt.

I also don't like the fact that they all had to get men, including Miss Mintie, to be happy. I love romance and love stories when I feel that it is real and beautiful love. Not when a book is written in such a fashion that every woman has to get a man to be fullfilled in life.

I was extremely dissapointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Christian Novels 10. Juli 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I must admit I have not read a lot of Christian literature, not as much as I would like, so Tracie Peterson's BELLS OF LOWELL were a great introduction to the genre. Each book is beautifully written, and they flow on continously, however, if you were to read them out of sequence, you would not be too terribly behind. I Could NOT put these books down, and in the process of collecting more of this woman's wonderful work. This series is a must buy!

3.0 von 5 Sternen New Series shows potential 28. Februar 2003
Von Bonnie McKinzie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Lilly is a young woman dedicated to farm life and the serenity of her beloved town and country. However, change has come in the form of huge brick mills replacing the farms. Lilly is sad and she is angry. Already she has lost both her parents, and her scoundrel brother has gambled away their inheritance. Alone and bitter, Lilly is determined to be a one-woman show who ultimately will bring down the mills.
Apparently the whole town is split. The town even lost its name. Rows of boarding houses with up to 8 girls a room now line the streets. Lilly is not one to cave in, but when she realizes that some of the very people who were part of her loving past have now accepted the mills, she is a bit confused: especially about Matthew, a former farm boyfriend turned mill executive.
Lilly feels dejected and ends up one of the mill-girls in an attempt to gain her farm community back.
Although this series shows potential, I found it slow getting started and void of real suspense and my interest waned at times. I would buy book 2 though, just for the simple fact of the author.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Series 22. Juli 2005
Von Mrs Mike - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is the first of 3 books in this series. It did start out a little slow, and it left a lot of questions in the end (what happens to the child Lilly believes is her brothers being the biggest) but before you decided to not read this book, reconsider!! The second and third book answer all the questions and the last book is very fast paced (comparitivily speaking). You can't judge this series on just this book, although I did personally enjoy this book.
