Reviews - What do customers think about These Tangled Threads (Bells of Lowell Series #3)?
Good May 17, 2006
This series is not one of my favorits. This is the best book in the set. I enjoyed that Daughtie did not treat the blacks or the Irish. I think that every girl should have the same ideas that she did. The story was pretty long, and some parts were boring. Still its by Tracie so it is a good read.
Great Apr 16, 2004
When Daughtie befriends a local Irish artisan, Liam, people start to talk. Daughtie is slowly falling for Liam, but everyone is warning her against it, even Liam himself. When Liam's home becomes a stop in the Underground Railroad, Daughtie offers to help him, but if they get caught... While this book wasn't as good as the first two it's still very good, and worth adding to your collection.
Peterson and Miller once again make a great writing team! Dec 1, 2003
The third book in the Bells of Lowell series captures the story of Daughtie as she fights for the equality of every citizen, regardless of heritage. From the implications of her association with an Irish worker to her stand of beliefs due to workplace conditions, her growth as a woman of independence is tested, as well as her faith. And as friendship grows to love, she risks losing the friendships she's held dear since her new life in Lowell began. In the space a few short years, Daughtie has emerged as a strong young woman, capable of making her own decisions... even ones that those closest to her would view as serious mistakes. A must read for those who have already come to love DAUGHTER OF THE LOOM and A FRAGILE DESIGN, and those who value historical fiction. ~~Ellie Schroder, owner of The Christian Fiction Site
