Having grown up in Lowell, I recently came to Amazon to buy "Darlings of Lowell" for a friend. While I was reading the so-so reviews, I came upon one that suggested one shouldn't bother with the book and buy Call the Darkness Light by Nancy Zaroulis for the factual well researched background of Lowell's industrial mills and life in those times all well written into an excellent novel with fictional characters. I bought the book, absolutely loved it as all the other reviewers who read it, and I returned to Amazon to buy a few copies to give to my granddaughters who were born and raised in Lowell.

The first time I read this book I couldn't put it down. 25 years later I am finally reading it again (I lent my original copy to a friend and never got it back) and find that once more I couldn't put it down until I finished.

It's one of those books that makes you want to hurry to the next page wondering "what happens next".

But the book is more than just a page-turner. It's very thought provoking and made me realize how fortunate I am to live in modern times. In spite of all the strife and turmoil in the world today we are so lucky to not have to live the way that Sabra did.

I recommend this book highly. Once you read it you will never forget it.
This is an old fashioned sweeping novel ala Gone with the Wind. Excellent character descriptions, logical motivation and absorbing plot Zaroulis tells the important tale of women's contributions and opportunities in time of the American manufacturing revolution. The women who toiled -- those who survived "consumption" freak accidents, fire, abuse were able to pave the way for female independence. The relationship between King Cotton and the Cotton Mills and slavery are clearly described. A true eye opener.
Highly recommended
Learned a lot about the "Company". It was surprising that so many young women worked in the industry. I was surprised they endured such hardships, but understand the need to send money back home. Very good book. Really enjoyed it and didn't want to put it down. I was a little disappointed in the ending, but could understand where the author was going with the ending.

Zaroulis describes the carriage trip of the Agent (boss) of the biggest textile mill up Church St., crossing the Concord river, going up the hill till it becomes Andover St. and the neighborhood of Belvedere where his home was along with other now almost 200 year old mansions. I walked the very route so many times to visit girlfriends being oblivious to the history I was walking along. Our schools taught us next to nothing of Lowell's history and so I left a city, badly in need of CPR, in '58 to go off to the completely different world of LA to go to USC. Reading Zaroulis many years later, I could again walk, because of her attention to detail, many streets/neighborhoods of my youth....albeit in my mind...and come to belatedly, greatly appreciate the men and women who made my life possible. If you ever go to New England, don't miss a day or two visiting the exhibitions of the mills, canals, and boarding houses as part of the National Park Service's restoration. Include the American Textile and the Boott Museums for their recreations of what it was like working in the huge rooms of looms. Once piqued with "Call", I'll bet you'll want to go with Zaroulis as she follows a passenger of the Mayflower as he begins a genealogy up to the mid 1900s in her next book, Massachusetts.
Pros: Great story teller. Keeps the action moving.Lots of real facts about the era.

Cons: Way too dramatic overly done with the hero of the book going through way too much tormoil. Too long to describe something going on and on like my soap opera.
Cannot tell the difference between fact and fiction. If I wanted a facts I would not choose this author again.
I would recommend this book to a friend with some reservations.
I was trying to come up with a birthday gift idea for my sister-in-;aw, when it hit me--why not a selection of some of my favorite books of all time. This is one of them. It is a classic in the women's history fiction genre, a great read, dramatic, strong narrative drive and very edifying. It takes place in the mills in New England in the 19th century and its protagonist is one of the most fascinating characters I have read. There's a reason it is still in print--because it is still gripping readers long after its initial publication date. You won't be able to put it down!!
My mother-in-law still lives in Lowell and was a "mill girl" for several years during the last century. Granted the time period in this book was in a much earlier century, I find it fascinating to know so many of the streets mentioned in the book are still there today. There also exists many row houses which no doubt were where the mill girls lived. By today's standards, it was an enorously difficult life. The American Textile Museum in Lowell is a great tribute to this past history, as well as to the advancements in today's textiles.
