This was a delightful, historic, romantic fiction. The story is fiction but based on some true events that took place. Asa Mercer actually did bring women from the East coast to the northwest territory to be brides for the over abundance of men. This was a wonderful story of true love, but maybe a bit predictable. I really like Deanne Gist and will listen to more of her books. Jennifer
I got this book in a BOGO sale and wow what a book. Controversial is an understatement. Thought-provoking, absolutely! So, you think you know how you feel about capital punishment, maybe not. We'll written, but somewhat of a tear jerker. Be prepared for an emotional roller coaster.
Amazing! Must read/listen! This is an incredible historic fiction story told from two perspectives, a young slave girl and a young aristocrat from a wealthy plantation. These two girls grow up together and realize they have more in common than they know. This story is fiction but based on historical fact. Sarah, the main character, was a real person and her home still stands in Charleston, SC. The injustices during this time are maddening. This book will bring about laughter, tears and frustration. One of the best books I have ever read/listened to.
Loved it once I got into it. Starts slow but hang in there it gets better and better. This is a story full of romance and adventure. There are lots of unexpected twists and turns. This book is over 30 hours long and we'll worth a credit. It is also a series and I look forward to starting book 2. If you can get through the first 2-3 hours then you will be hooked. I highly recommend this book.
Incredibly gorgeous and insanely wealthy guy with control and commitment issues meets pretty young thing (who is also gorgeous but is not aware of it) . . . It was entertaining, but somewhat predictable. This was a BOGO deal so I did not mind. I did not feel it was worthy of a full credit.
I took a chance and got this book in a BOGO deal and it is fabulous. This historical fiction novel takes place from the around the1860s until the 1960s. Over the century, you follow three generations of the McIvey men. This story has humor, history and emotion. Beware, there are a few tear-jerking moments, but overall it has a good message. I also felt the ending was a little abrupt. Otherwise great!
This was a 4.95 special. It was a cute love story. It was a light, easy listen. Enjoyable.
This is an amazing, moving story that takes place during the Roman Empire, after the death of Jesus. Although fiction, the author gives a very interesting and insightful glimpse into this famous era of history. This is a Christian novel, but do not think this is a light read. There is violence, audultery, deceit and greed throughout the story. Francine Rivers does not sugar coat anything. She tells it like it is. I loved it!
Moving, thought-provoking, amazing! I absolutely loved this historical fiction novel. The author is extremely gifted in relating the biblical story of the prophet Hosea through fictional characters in the 1800's. This author doesn't sugar-coat it. She tells it like it is. She does not shield you from the evils of the world, but provides an insightful message. Ultimately, we are all selfish. Can we overcome those natural tendencies, and love others as Christ has loved us? . . . Forgive others as Christ has forgiven us? This book will make you think.
I absolutely loved this series!!! I thought each book was fabulous! Through the trilogy, you will see America (the main character) grow, mature and make difficult decisions. Can she put the well-being of her country before her own desires? How will Maxen lead the country? Can he stand up for what he believes in? Can he stand up to his father? Very entertaining. Finished in 2 days. Eventhough it is short, it is well worth a credit!
Amazing! I thoroughly enjoyed this brilliantly written novel. This is a story of two women from different times and worlds who are both "left behind". The two stories of these women are connected by a painting. A painting, that to them, is priceless because of the connection it has to their husbands. Each woman must decide to what lengths she is willing to go to protect someone or something that she loves. Though at times tragic, this story will keep you on the edge of your seat. Enjoy!
