Baker Publishing Group
A romantic historical novel about a young woman angry at the factory owners on whom she blames her father's death. Bells of Lowell book 1.
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?

& Taylor

Supporting herself by working in the mills in nineteenth-century Massachusetts, Lilly Armbruster resents the mill owners who she believes are responsible for her father's death, a sentiment that interferes with her love for former fiancT, Matthew Cheever. Original.
