The Daughters of Jim Farrell by Sylvia Bambola

The Daughters of Jim Ferrel

Pennsylvania 1873: When, in the harsh world of Pennsylvania coal country, Jim Farrell is hanged for murder, his wife and three daughters must turn their beautiful home into a boarding house in order to survive. But struggling beneath the shadow of shame becomes too much for eldest daughter, Kate. She resolves to clear her father’s name in spite of her mother’s admonition to “let it go,” and convinces her sisters to help. All too soon their dangerous quest rips the family apart. Will it also cost them the men they love?

Oh my gosh… This book is insanely good. It starts out kind of slow at first. Then before you know it, your trapped. There’s a full cast of characters you will love, and then there are some you will absolutely hate!

Kate, the eldest daughter is head strong and determined to find the truth. She talks her sisters into bringing in a Pinkerton. Virginia is against it at first, saving her money to start her very own newspaper, but eventually agrees. Charlotte, the youngest, is engaged to a business man and the hanging has jeopardized her standing in the community. Throughout this story each daughter meets(or has) a man, and they travel through the ups and downs of relationships. As more evidence shows up, each is struggling to face it. Even at some points believing their father really is a murderer!

Kate, falls for the Pinkerton. After he has done everything except flat out say ‘I love you”. He also took the case for another reason, but you’ll have to read The Daughters of Jim Farrell to find that out…

Virginia is blind-sided and fall in love with a miner. He is always dirty, full of coal and lives in the run down shacks the railroad allows for their workers. But, none of that matters to Virginia. He opens a door for her dreams to come true, then her heart is completely broken…

Charlotte, the spoiled one has always had her beau. Until he spoke his feeling about the way her family was acting. Never have I ever thought she would stand up for herself. Thankfully, Charlotte is stronger than I thought… Eventually he came to his senses and the love birds grew closer…

You can read their full stories for yourselves, and you should! These pages are full of surprises. Twists and turns you wouldn’t expect on every page. If you can make it through the slow beginning, the first or two chapters, you will love the rest.

I received a complementary copy of this book via BookCrash in exchange for an honest review.
