Interesting twists and turns

Lights of Lowell #1 in series. Interesting book, not your average mail order bride type. Betrothed to a man she doesn't know because a business deal. In fact no one really knows Bradley Houston.

A little too distressing

If you could sum up Lights of Lowell in three words, what would they be?

What a struggle!

What did you like best about this story?

The end when the wicked man dies.

What about Linda Stephens’s performance did you like?

Not the best narration in my opinion

Any additional comments?

This book was difficult for me because of the wickedness of the lead character and his abuse of everyone around him. I read or listen to books to find peace, hope, encouragement - this book was depressing to me. Reality is reality but I want a little reality with lots of happy overcoming. The best part of the book was the very brief ending to such a horrible trial. I was glad for the scriptural encouragement to prayerfully endure even people like Bradley Houston. I almost didn't listen to the book because I was not interested in someone learning to deal with an unloving abusive husband. I am hoping book two and three will be more like the other Tracie Peterson books I have read.

A Great Story!!!

Would you listen to Lights of Lowell again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to this audiobook again. truly enjoyed this book. It takes place during slavery. The characters are realistically portrayed and the historical events vividly depicted. I am a fan of Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. Their work is so inspirational.

Lynn Austin has a book, Light Unto My Path which is similar during the same time period.

Which character – as performed by Linda Stephens – was your favorite?

I love the Irish brogue of the characters: Kira and Rogan, also Mammy.

Too many names

I couldn't keep track of who was whom. So many names of men. I never could remember who they were speaking of. I lost interest after 5 chapters.

I gave up on this one...

I've liked all the others, but I finally gave up on this one as the heroine was too gullable and clueless, which drove me crazy.
