About the Author
Born in Romania in 1945, Sylvia Bambola lived her early years in Germany. At seven she relocated with her adopted family and saw the Statue of Liberty and America for the first time. But the memory of those years in Germany inspired her to write Refiner's Fire, which won a Silver Angel Award, and was a Christy Finalist. Her frequent moves as an "army brat" gave her an opportunity to see America and fall in love with her new country. Bambola has authored eight novels, has two grown children and teaches women's Bible studies.
The Daughters of Jim Farrell by Sylia Bambola is interesting historical fiction read. It is about the three daughters of Jim Farrell, a man that was hung for murder. His daughters hire a Pinkerton man to come learn the truth of what really happened to their father and why he was accused of murder. Throughout the book I was in great suspense wondering what was going to happen next. I also enjoyed the bantering and affection between the three sisters as they work through their struggles and joys together. I would recommend this novel to readers that enjoy historical suspense novels with a little bit of romance. I would also recommend this novel to readers that enjoy the TV series When Calls the Heart.
