Reviews - What do customers think about A Tapestry of Hope (Lights of Lowell Series #1)?

Tracie is wonderful  Apr 5, 2006
Tracie Peterson did it again. She is a really wonderful author and I love her books. This is a great book to read if you love the Civil War like I do. It is a story about a young girl who grows up very fast. She is forced to marry a man that is much older then her and that she doesnt love. I enjoyed this book a lot but you should read the Bell of Lowell series first. Everything is more understandable if you read them in order.
very good book  Oct 3, 2005
I have to say this is the second best book by Tracie Peterson. I read next to all of her books. My favorite has to be the series Heirs of Montana. But this is close in second. Very good book I can't wait to read the next one in this series. If you liked this book or the Heirs of Montana I suggest Liz Curtis Higgs series that starts with Thorn in my Heart.
An enjoyable read  Sep 14, 2005
This book started out a little slow with alot of narration. It then picked up pace and I ended up really enjoying it. Jasmine grows up suddenly when she is forced into a marriage for the betterment of her family. She trys to make the best of her married life . Bradley, her husband is moody and unlikable. Kiara, an indentured servant of Jasmine's husband,Bradley becomes a friend an ally. This book is the 1st of a triligy.
An Amazing Read!  Nov 12, 2004
This is the first time I've ever read either of these authors and they have created a story that was amazing for so many reasons. The characters were complex, the storyline was moving and very consuming.

Jasmine is the only daughter of a cotton plantation owner who has dreamed of marrying for love. This dream comes to an end when she has been forced into a marriage that will benefit the family. She will move North and be the wife of a cotton purchaser. Everyone keeps telling her that with time she may grow to love her husband. Jasmine knows that, that day will never come. Bradley is ambitious, driven, and puts work and money first. He has no belief in God, and thinks that the only one that can help him is himself. He wants Jasmine and is willing to mold her into the wife that he needs, and wants especially if it means professing his love.

Jasmine though knows that his words are false, and with the help of her grandmother, and brother-in-law she finds hope and friendship in the cold north. That is not the only change that Jasmine is forced to face. She is also faced with the problems and lies of her former lifestyle considering the fact that her family owns slaves, and she has finally faced the fact that what she has always thought was also a lie. Now she must make sense of what she always thought and what is real.

This is truly an aspiring read. Jasmine is both at the same time, spoiled and willful as well as being brave and grown-up. In other words she is complex and her story will pull the reader in until the final page. Secondary characters are essential to the story and are wonderful additions. I look forward to the next book in this series and I highly recommend this read and these authors.

Official Reviewer for
Very inspiring and gives you a lot to think about.  Sep 6, 2004
This book caught my interest right away.ýIt was an interesting look at what life was like shortly before the Civil War.ýIt is the story of Jasmine Wainwright.ýHer father owns a cotton plantation which is worked by slaves.ýJasmine only sees what her father wants her to see when it comes to the treatment of the slaves.ýEnter Bradley Houston who's interested in buying Wainwright cotton.ýHe will go to any lengths to get it.ýPart of his plan includes marrying Jasmine.ý

As the pages of this novel unfold you see how Jasmine grows from a spoiled daughter to a very intelligent young woman.ýThe writers uses an interesting tactic: half way through the book, they introduce several new characters.ýThe writers quickly get you to care about these new characters, Kaira and her brother Paddy, orphans who come to the U.S. from Ireland.ýWe're given a glimpse at what Ireland was like during the potato famine that devastated Ireland during this time.ýThese two come to the home of Bradley and Jasmine.ýThe book then takes a rather somber turn.ý

I would not recommend this book for younger readers.ýThere are some facts of life that younger children should be sheltered from.ýAlthough the events covered in the book were hard to read at times, the writers' basic theme, that the Lord is with us even when horrible things happen in our lives, was really brought home.ýThe book was very inspiring and gave me a lot to think about.
