This was pretty good historical romance, despite the formulaic love story ever present in this series I appreciated that the love story was really secondary to the main character s story, and most of the book focused on working in the mill, the other girls, and life in the boarding house I was honestly surprised how much this held up for me, despite the fact I remember others in the series being better. One of the earlier titles in this out of print mid 80s series of historical romance fiction for teens I had never read this one, and for your typical romantic historical written on a formula it is not half bad If you can get past the ever present dilemma the heroine is always in choosing between two men you can actually enjoy the history, which at least in this one is told well Joanna Adams becomes a Lowell mill girl, hoping to improve herself , but discovers that the women are mistr One of the earlier titles in this out of print mid 80s series of historical romance fiction for teens I had never read this one, and for your typical romantic historical written on a formula it is not half bad If you can get past the ever present dilemma the heroine is always in choosing between two men you can actually enjoy the history, which at least in this one is told well Joanna Adams becomes a Lowell mill girl, hoping to improve herself , but discovers that the women are mistreated and overworked Not only does this Sunfire heroine need to choose between her two men ha she must also decide whether or not it is right to strike against her mill s overbearing management and also learn how to make her voice heard There ishere than in the usual so, not bad There are a few standouts in this series I remember reading them when I was barely a teen The chance for a new life, the hope for a new love Were they worth the risk of leaving home Would she have to defy everything even love From her simple farm life in Vermont, Joanna bravely joins the growing number of girls working in the textile mills inWith her she carries the painful memory of Jed, a young man who has left her, loving the sea then he loves her In the Lowell, Massachusetts, mill, Joanna is horrified to find the work both grueling and dangerous Even a romance with the mill owner s roguish nephew, Theo, can t keep the daily work from becoming terrifying drudgery To strike with the other mill women seems Joanna s only way out of a job that threatens her very existence But defying the miller owner s will certainly mean losing her job and Theo And if Jed ever returns from the sea, would he recognize could he love the new Joanna I had a thing for historical romance books in junior high school and I picked up two books from this historical series.I remember being really impressed with the author s use of details and how she was very true to the period I can recall years later some of the details of the mills factories where Joanna worked Very good read. Waxing Nostalgic This was not one of my favorite books in the Sunfire series as Joanna spends most of her time away from her suitors I like to see the sweet teenage romance I do like the growth and maturity that Joanna gains as she lives and works in the mills She makes good friends and discovers things about her own strength So, it is a good coming of age story. Date below second reading There were a few times when she was called Joanne instead of Joanna Having visited Lowell, I think the history is interesting Wasn t sure I agreed with how both men were portrayed. This is one that I could barely remember anything about, so it was almost like I was reading a new book Not my favourite one, but still interesting and about a part of history that I have little knowledge on.
