One thought on “Call the Darkness Light

  1. Cecilia

    Not the first Zaroulis tome of historical fiction that I have read I m a fan of her writing style Nancy Zaroulis is adept at creating believable characters and settings And it s evident that she did copious research on the the Industrial Revolution for this novel Call the Darkness Light offers an understanding of what life was like in Lowell, Massachusetts for a stoic young Yankee woman come to town to work in the cotton mills Zaroulis uses the life story of her main character, Sabra Palry, as a [...]

    The setting of this book was in Lowell, Ma where I grew up It was amazing to brought back in time and read about such places as the Shaw Hospital, the Acre, the mills, etc.

  3. Symone Thomas

    Excellent This story is set in the early factory town of Lowell, Massachusetts on the 1800s, offering a glimpse of the beginnings of industrial America It touches on a wide range of topics whose ripple effects, whether large or small are still felt today, including growing unrest over slavery, the slowly shifting role of women in society, rural versus city life, the greed of corporation shareholders who drive unrealistic production, the dire lives of those workers and their unheard pleas for a 1 [...]

    By a Hampton Beach kid of the 40 s, 50s Anyone remember the fisherman statue in a pond on the main road in Amesbury signaling We re almost at the 10 cent wooden toll bridge to Hampton Zaroulis Call blew my mind away in the 80s by vividly enlightening me about what happened 150 years earlier on the streets, e.g Church Andover to Belvedere and other neighborhoods, I trodded as a teen to woo gals to thus appreciate what the Mill Gals forged for me to later enjoy the birthing of the Rock n Roll era [...]

    Amazingly rich and a superbly researched novel Early 19th century history geeks such as myself had little to complain about the historical minutae of the book I really appreciated the level writing of the heroine Sabra She was perfectly written as a women in her own time and place.So often histocical fiction can project modern ideals and concepts onto people in history Rest assured this did not happen here Without making Sabra seem like a dullard or uninformed in her time, Author Nancy Zaroulis [...]

  6. Ruth

    Disclaimer this is a half baked review about half read book At first I found this book charming and a great history lesson about the mill industry in 1830s New England It follows the story of a mill worker in a cloth factory There is a touch of Dickens in the entertaining presentation of grim poverty The character leaves the mill to follow her quasi fiance to a back to nature cult, part of the utopian communities of the era, I am sure I learned about it in college There is a stint with the Shake [...]

  7. Sharon

    Torn between marking it ok or liked it It was ok and I did like it most of the time Historical fiction is not one of my favorite genres and sometimes this book seemed like the author was trying to put everything that happened in this era into the life of the protagonist Sabra So not only was she a Lowell mill worker, she also ran into Shakers, immigrants Irish and German ,the mystical craze, and the beginnings of the Civil War I did learn a lot about the mills and how enchanted the outside world [...]

  8. James Barnes

    This book was a page turner and could not put it down I happened to have the book laying dusty in book case The coincidence was that I had gone to dinner w friends, who lived in Lowell, the day I started it I was completely in awe of those monstrous mills lining the river bank, like the pyramids in Egypt What a great history lesson of the mid 19th century The ending was a bit dull Is there a sequel I still gave it 5 stars.

  9. Jackie Sanderson

    I read the first edition published in 1979 It s a long novel that is set in Lowell, Mass in the mid 1850s The main character is an Irish woman who works in the textile mills It s a great historical treatment of what life and working conditions were like then One of the most unforgettable stories I ve ever read.

  10. Marie

    After months, nay years, of reading Harry Potter books, it was nice to read a book written for adults This was a book recommended to me by a friend It s a very well written and engaging book about the turn of the century Well, two centuries ago and the rise of the factory industry It s compelling and enticing Well written and intriquing.

  11. Kota Alexander

    I LOVED this book It helped me realize how much of America s literary, spiritual, educational , religious, intellectual and industrial history took place in New England but specifically in Massachusetts America has a lot for which to thank Massachusetts.

  12. Jeannie Kilburn

    Interesting story of young women working in the mills in Lowell, MA and other cities in MA in the 1800 s Tough way to make a living This story takes a lot of twists and turns not even straying from Lowell Take a while to get into it I would have cut out many details.

  13. Pat

    Call the Darkness Light is one of my favorite books The story of a woman making her life alone in that era affected me profoundly All workers, but especially female workers, struggled just to survive.

  14. Victoria

    I really liked this book Fact filled historical fiction about the Lowell Experiment and the life of women working in the textile mills.

  15. Marguerite

    Nancy Zaroulis is one of my favorite authors She writes now as Cynthis Peale This book is similar to The Darling Girls of Lowell I have to read this too.

  16. Judy

    A long read but this story paints a picture of what life would have been like for a female in the early 1800s Lots of details about that time period.

  17. Pamela

    I read this book many years ago and thought it was a good story of what it was like to be a worker in New England mills

  18. Nicole Gust
