I was sad to see it end it was such a beautifully written book but, of course, I love both Nantucket and New Bedford. Another book I highly recommend is Susannah Morrow which is another book about the Salem Witch Trials but I thought it was particularly well done. If you are interested in non-fiction I highly, highly recommend Fire and Roses which is set in Boston in the s. Since I am also a writer I'll just mention my book Each Angel Burns which is set in an old abandoned convent on the coast in Maine.
It looks interesting. Great topic! I'd add The Last Days of Dogtown to the list. A charming read about a settlement on Cape Ann during the s.
There are only a few residents left, and Diamant tells each of their stories with humor and sadness. I was surprised by how much I liked this book. Apr 06, AM. Another book I highly recommend is Chris wrote: "Great topic! There are only a few residents left, and Diamant tells each I live in Gloucester less than a mile from Dogtown and I thought her story was rather shallow. Another book I hig I see that Geraldine Brooks is coming out with a historical novel about the first Indian graduate of Harvard, set in the s.
I think it's called Caleb's Crossing: A Novel. Bowditch , which I recommend. Aug 03, PM. I read a historical fiction book about working in textile mills in New England in the mid s. I can't recall the name of this book nor the author, and I'm hoping someone can help me figure it out as I'd like to read the book again as I have a renewed interest in the topic.
When I read it long ago I believe it was an older book already - I recall borrowing an older hardback copy of the book from a friend. Anyone have any thoughts as to what the book might be? Aug 04, AM. I'm doubt that this is it since it was published in , but you might enjoy reading this anyway, it has the ingredidents you mentioned and I thought it was well done. Thanks for the recommendation, Barb, and I may read this as well, but you're right, it's not the book. A recent book I read that was very enlightening was titled, I think, War on Words, and it was about how New England writers were discouraged from addressing slavery and post-slavery in their writing.

I haven't found alot out there about that. Aug 16, AM. I can't recall the name of this book nor the author, and I'm hoping someone can help Ryan wrote a historical mystery set in Boston and it had to do with women working in textile mills.

The house has been restored to look as it would have done when she lived there, and provides an intimate look into her private life. Be sure to tour the gardens and the beautiful Nook Farm area while you are there. The House of Seven Gables, made famous by Hawthorne's novel of the same name, is the oldest wooden 17th century mansion still standing. Built in in Salem, MA, it's a National Historic Landmark, and an amazing example of the architecture of the time.
