N Beulah Fiddement works as a bobbin winder and has secrets that the master would go to any lengths to get Caught up in a dark adult world of illicit love rebellion and revenge Beulah must put away her childhood and draw on all her spirit to protect those she loves Beulah's story of guilt and bravery will echo down two centuries and change Rosie's life as she struggles to overcome the hand of her own past and find redemptio. Like the characters and their individual stories Rosie and her horrible breakup she was having to live through but then having a light at the end of the tunnel with a new love interest The lives of all at the Silk Factory including the evil Mr Fowler Tobias Beulah and the gypsy boy and the romance between Jack and Effie I was there for all the Highs And The Low Moments This Book Perfectly Encompasses The and the low moments This book perfectly encompasses the and evil that is prevalent in people and makes Assassin's Creed Valhalla - Artbook officiel you feel the wayou should towards each character The only reason this didn t get a 4 star review is because there were a few things I didn t feel were tied up neatly enough or I felt weren t really in keeping shall we say SPOILER FROM NOW Now I m far from the ghost expert but the fact that the ghost is a little girl and that she was supposedly Beulah Becoming Enlightened yet at the end of the book we see her as a fully grown woman with a family of her own The ghost gave me the impression that she had died tragically at aoung age at the hands of the evil Mr Fowler or something I was surprised by that ending and uite confused I felt like the last few chapters were rushed into an ending that I seemed to have blinked and missed I think I may have to revisit the last chapters to get into my head what happened as I feel like I ve missed some form of vital revealing information but at the same time I also think that maybe I didn t Maybe that s just the way it ended I m torn between finding out what I missed or finding out I missed nothing and that really was all there was to it Maybe that s just me though Overall very well written and a good read with a tiny slither of room for improvement in my humble opinion Another book following the currently popular pastpresentpast structure Essentially a ghost story but not an in our face one Judith Allnatt s novel is well researched and brings out the harshness and frailties of working class life in the very early 1800s It also touches upon though doesn t dwell upon the difficulties facing a woman in the present day who is undergoing a divorce from a bullying husband The writing itself is well crafted but I did feel the endings both to the earlier and current stories were left hanging I enjoyed The Moon Field The Silk Factory not as much This is a haunting historical novel that I would recommend to anybody who is a fan of Barbara Erskine or Pamela Hartshorne Whilst not a time slip novel EXACTLY the two stories run alongside each other with Rosie in the present day occasionally catching glimpses of Beulah in the past alongside each other with Rosie in the present day occasionally catching glimpses of Beulah in the past characters are well written and I found Rosie really easy to relate to The thread that runs through both sides of the novel both past and present is family and how we do what we can to protect them I was left with a few uestions at the end of the book particularly in relation to events that happened early in Rosie s life but an aspect of the novel I did like was the way I was led to believe that something had happened to Beulah when in actual fact events turned out differently to how I believed they would The writing is clear and it is not difficult to imagine the conditions Beulah and her colleagues at the Silk Factory were living in A excellent read for anyone who likes a little bit of past in their prese. F a shocking truth about her own childhood when she is already reeling from the breakup of her marriage fills her with distrust and fearfulness Then she starts seeing a strange child wandering in the garden who seems as lost as she is In 1812 silk master Septimus Fowler has grand plans to keep his factory in step with the industrial revolution he will plant mulberry trees rear silkworms and import new mechanized looms Orpha. ,
