The Daughters of Jim Farrell is a Christian novel written by Sylvia Bambola. This story is set in the coal mine industry in the 1800s when poverty was at an all time high. Jim Farrell was hanged for murder, and as a result his wife turned their home into a boarding house to maintain herself and her daughters. The oldest daughter, Kate, had a hard time believing that her father committed the crime and set her mind to finding out the truth. After pleading with her sisters, they all band together and hire a private investigator to seek the truth. This story tests the faith of the entire family but especially the sisters' trust in one another. Sylvia Bambola did a great job with tying the story together and making the reader understand the emotions of each of the crazy occurrences. The daughters of Jim Farrell did not realize that by simply questioning their father's death they would be faced with so many unanswered questions.
The plot of the story was good from the very beginning. The story is totally well written and takes you on a suspenseful journey through a small town mentality of family and belief. This Christian novel left no questions unanswered and provided very good details to the background of the story, allowing the reader feel the intensity of each and every word. This is definitely a very well written, excellent novel!
