    1. Set just three miles away from my cottage this compelling tale was recommended to me by someone in my book group. I'm very glad she did, because it was a very enjoyable read that kept me engaged right to the end. I had a couple of late nights not being able to put it down.If you read it I strongly suggest you look up pictures of the village and garrison online as I could not believe it the first time I saw it, a massive Georgian complex dwarfing the village


    2. Brooding and atmospheric , The Silk Factory embraces two life stories set in dual periods of history. With the gentlest of touches, Judith Allnatt has spun her gorgeous threads with care, so they interweave seamlessly.The divine prose, magnificent scene setting, and energy of the individual personalities that appear throughout, have truly brought this story to lifeIn the present day we arrive in the parish of Weedon Bec, at the door of a property inherited by Rosie. She’s had her fair share of [...]


    3. We are transported back in time to the early 1800’s to an English silk factory. Both the profit driven owner and the poor who work there struggle to make a living. In the present we have Rosie a divorced mother of two whose difficulties increase with the death of her own mother and the move away from London. The link is that Rosie’s new home, inherited from her mother, was once part of the old silk factory and maybe some ghosts from that time still remain…Author Judith Allnatt treats us to [...]


    4. 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. The 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 w [...]


    5. Another book following the (currently) popular past/present/past . . . structure. Essentially a ghost story, but not an in-your-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 th [...]


    6. I have to say that I firstly struggled to get to grips with this book moving back and forth between time periods, but that's to be expected when listening to it as an audiobook. Once I got the hang of the characters and being able to instantly transport myself back and forward, I started to really enjoy getting into the story. I was desperately trying to find the connection, maybe family link, between the little ghost girl and Rosie but soon found there to be none, just the fact that the house R [...]


    7. One of our book club members happened to go the book shop in Weedon Bec and asked if they could recommend anything for her to bring to the club - and this was it. By coincidence Judith was also holding a reading the same month we were due to discuss it, so 8 of us sat spell-bound (and freezing) listening to her read from the book and also tell of her research and how the book came about (a friend bought a new house in Weedon yet could smell smoke which made Judith think about ghosts and what was [...]


    8. An interesting historical theme from the early Industrial Revolution and a modern day story of hope, both set in what is now Weedon Bec . A very satisfying conclusion to each, no tying up of loose ends but a final feeling of accepting life as it is and not expecting perfection.


    9. Easy to read book despite hopping between two different time periods. Had some ghosts in which scared me, but was a good way to join up the two stories. I enjoyed both time periods and their characters. As usual I couldn't decipher the ending :/



    10. This book was so very close to being exceptionally well written. Judith Allnatt wasn't able to quite pull it off. Admittedly her best parts were the story centred during the 19th century, but as well as the haunting of Rosie. There were times when as the reader one could really warm to the character of Rosie and she seemed set apart from other modern novels, however, it wasn't polished enough for that. The story or rather interwove stories did rise to an incredible crescendo and was quite close [...]


    11. The Silk Factory is not just the title of this story, it is also it's heart. Rosie Milford and her two small children have moved into a house that was once part of a silk factory. The house was left to Rosie when her mother died recently, and she hopes that she and her children can make a new start there. They've come through some difficult times recently with the death of her mother and the break-up of her marriage, and although Rosie often feels unsettled by being surrounded by her mother's be [...]


    12. Judith Allnatt's well written novel moves between the early nineteenth century and present day with ease. It is an intriguing and clever plot that brings the two stories together in a house that was once a silk factory. The two female protagonists are well portrayed, both suffering difficulties common to their times. The reader is drawn in to wanting them to escape their plights. The descriptions are evocative, particularly in capturing the mood of what it was like to work in silk manufacturing [...]


    13. I loved this book. I was fascinated by the history which appeared to be well researched. The author drew a beautiful and probably acurate picture of Northamptonshire in the 1800s, the rural, the local industry, the poverty, the division between those that have and those that have not, the work house and how people were treated, the role of the church, the way the workers were treated and their discontent.Judith Allnatts writing was also beautiful with lovely descriptions.The tale was imaginative [...]


    14. Beautifully written and enjoyable storyI couldn't put this book down, but didn't want it to finish. This is a well crafted and thought-provoking story which moves effortlessly between centuries encompassing insightful themes of loss, whilst also painting a very vivid picture of the real hardship endured by the working classes (children and adults), in 19th century England. Thoroughly recommend.


    15. Rosie moves into her mother's house after she dies suddenly, with her two young children. The house seems to have a mysterious presence. Portions of the book are set in the past, with Effie Fiddlement and her two younger siblings. Parts are good, and other parts drag a little. The characters are not really memorable and there is not really much to say, other than the novel was ok.


    16. While I quite enjoyed reading this book, I did have one or two issues with it. The first was the ghost of Beluah, as she didn't die at the age of nine, her spirit should not have been at that age when Rosie saw her and I am not sure that Jack's family would have been happy with him marrying so below his station. If he had be a lower rank then lieutenant it would have been more likely.


    17. A good read, but some distracting holesAlthough I very much enjoyed most of this book, I felt it had several loose ends that, had they been tied up, would have strengthened the book. On the other hand, real life sometimes leaves loose ends, so perhaps that should not be considered a serious fault.All in all, I would cautiously recommend this book to other readers.


    18. I enjoyed the book for its local references, and local history. Overall it felt a little predictable but the characters of Rosie and Beulah were well drawn and the parallels between them were interesting


    19. This was almost a four star read. A dual narrative, with an intriguing mystery at the heart of it involving weavers in 1812 and ghost children and a modern day woman struggling to cope after a messy divorce.


    20. Really enjoyed this atmospheric eerie book. Really well written and want to read more of the authors books.
