A Book Review

I've been thoroughly enjoying my new found genius idea of listening to books on CD while driving to and from work!  It makes for a much more enjoyable commute!  :)

Just recently, I finished another audiobook.  It is called A Tapestry of Hope by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller, book #1 in the Lights of Lowell series.  

This was a light and enjoyable read.  The book is set in the 1840s in the historic South as well as in Lowell, Massachusetts...I always find that time period fascinating!  A Tapestry of Hope is a well written story of two young girls who find their strength and peace in God in the midst of difficult and trying circumstances.  Jasmine Wainwright is a Southern gentile woman that most modern women would admire and respect for her gracious character under pressure.  Kiara is an indentured servant from Ireland who perseveres through trials and hardship to find that with God forgiveness is always possible.

I definitely recommend this book, giving it a 7 out of 10.  There are three books in this series and I am really interested to see how the series finishes!

I enjoyed this series. But I think the setting is Lowell Massachusetts. I say that because that's where my mom's family is from and my sister found the series and shared with all of us because of the connection we all have to Lowell. It's a huge textile town, and the factories are all still standing. Mostly empty but still there.
