Fay Mary FoxsAge: Under 184 Stars Out Of 5Pretty goodJune 13, 2016Fay Mary FoxsAge: Under 18Quality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 3I thought this book wasn't too bad, I mean the plot wasn't the best I have read, it wasn't awful or anything just a bit shallow. If you like Historical fiction you might like this. I will continue to read the following books in the Bells of Lowell series.

Did end rather abruptly, probably to set up for sequel.

This book is a sweet historical romance about a young woman who loves the farm life and the peacefulness of the town and country which she lives in. Her name is Lily. Lily is extremely angry and unhappy since brick mills have started to take over the farmland. Her no good brother has gambled away what her mother and father left them when they died. Lily is all alone and extremely bitter. She has vowed to bring down the mills even if she has to do it herself..
It appears the town has taken sides. Boarding houses with up to 8 girls per room are up and down the streets of the town that has now lost it's name. Lily doesn't like to give in. Some of the people who were against the mills have now accepted them. She can't understand why a ex-boyfriend and former farmer has turned and is now a mill executive.It seemed like the characters were just happy, happy, happy. They were always nice, forgiving and loving. The only character who really appeared to be REAL was Lily. She got angry, was bitter, mad and wanted things back like they were. It seemed like when a character could stand up and go against what everyone else is doing, it fell flat. All it took was I'm Sorry and all was well.. Life doesn't work that way. Christians are just like everyone else. They get made, angry , sad and all the other emotions we all wish we sometimes didn't have.I felt that the book was really slow paced and I just about gave up reading a couple of times. It just didn''t hold my interest. I think we need a little realism here. I would say , read the book and come up with your own conclusion. Not every thinks the same or likes the same things.
I would give this book 3.5 Stars.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Christian Book.com for this unbiased review.
