Présentation de l'éditeur

Jasmine Houston, a widow with a young son, agrees to harbor former slaves at her horse farm outside of Lowell, even though her father, a plantation owner, supports slavery. When a boardinghouse keeper unwittingly becomes involved with a traveling peddler who sells something infinitely more valuable than shoes, Jasmine is devastated to discover that her son and the former slaves have been kidnapped. Jasmine's determination to free them threatens to undo her family as well as the ties that bind the burgeoning textile industry to the southern cotton growers. Book two in the bestselling Lights of Lowell.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Wonderful Addition To This Series! 13 novembre 2004
Par Kristi Ahlers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Ms. Peterson and Ms. Miller have continued with their "Lights of Lowell" series and this title is just as wonderful and inspiring as the last. This story is rich with histocial details, historical figures, and characters that the reader will grow to love and we the reader will experience their ups and downs, joys and heartaches.

Jasmine has moved on from the death of her first husband. She has made a life for herself and her son Spencer in Lowell, Ma. in a new home, with new friends. Her relationship with her brother-in-law Nolan is growing closer, and she has finally taken a stand on slavery as part of a group that has been helping those on the underground railroad on their way to Canada and freedom. Soon her world is turned upside down when she is requested to go back home to "The Willows". Her mother and her mammy are gravely ill and she is needed. When she is there Mammy askes her from her deathbed to find her own son and free him. Jasmine can do nothing less and with the help of Nolan she finds Mammy's son and takes him with his wife and son back to Lowell. Within no time life has fallen into a predictable but comfortable pattern until events happen that cause Jasmine to question her faith and to wonder what good could come from such despair.

This was a wonderfully emotional read that draw the reader in and transport them back to a time that is long past, but has had long ranging repurcussions into society today. This was a difficult topic to touch on (Slavery) and the author's have done so with grace and sensitivity. This is a read that I highly recommend and found not only inspirational but entertaining as well.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Aterrific historical tale 7 décembre 2004
Par Harriet Klausner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
In 1849 Lowell, Massachusetts, widowed Jasmine Houston and her two years old son Spencer are making new friends to include a closer relationship with her brother-in-law Nolan, an antislavery author. Jasmine has also finally committed herself to work against slavery by becoming a conductor on the Underground Railroad. She has regained her equilibrium and balance lost during her marriage to the late Bradley.

Her father requests she come home to the Willows in Mississippi because her mother and her Mammy are deathly ill and want to see her. Nolan accompanies his sister-in-law and nephew on the trek south. At the Willows, Mammy obtains a deathbed vow from Jasmine to free her son, which she does before returning to Lowell. However, ethical deeds do not prevent bad things happening to good people as her son is abducted perhaps for her allowing escaped slaves to hide on her farm; feeling like Job without his faith, Jasmine questions all she believes in.

Book two of the Lights of Lowell series (see A TAPESTRY OF HOPE) is a terrific historical tale that brings to life a bygone era when people had to choose sides. Jasmine is a fabulous protagonist raised on a southern plantation by parents who owned slaves, and had one Mammy raise her. Interestingly, the thriving mill city of Lowell in Northern Massachusetts is divided over slavery as the town depends on cotton from the south to keep the textile mills running and competitive with England. A LOVE WOVEN TRUE is a deep look at mid-nineteenth century America at least in two fronts as states, communities and families are divided over slavery.

All the pro and anti-slavery conflicts rise to the surface as two families, one the south and the other from the north, find their values challenged in this absorbing novel. It is a well-written story that includes the many defenses of the various political positions. Set in Massachusetts in the mid-1860s, the families settle their differences without compromising God's basic values, as they depend on His wisdom and forgiveness for their individual situations.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Historical 10 octobre 2008

I always forget how much I enjoy a good historical until I pick up a book by Tracie Peterson. This story was a wonderful and exciting sequel, I was glad that all the same people came back to make the story complete. The story of little Moses really touched me! I can't wait to read the third book in this series so I can find out what happens next. I recommend this book to every one.
