This book was so disappointing. It was some sort of Allegorical Read but felt like he was trying to copy THE SHACK. It was long... boring and really preachy. I get was he was trying to communicate but whoa.... it did me in. I decided I would finish it to the end and so I did but it left me with a big disappointing taste.
This was a very strange storyline. Difficult to follow and outrageous. Gave it up after the first half of the story.
I really enjoyed reading this biography of Gracia Burnham. I remember when that took place and so it was great to read the details of the story and her responses to what happened. She did an excellent job of retelling her tale of difficult and painful circumstances and it encouraged me to "walk joyfully" to what is going on at any given time.
I was listening to this read at the same time as watching the series 3 of Downton Abbey. I kept getting the story lines mixed up. They were so similar in the servants quarters. If you love Downton... this will make for a most enjoyable read.
I loved the Masquerade ball at the end.
I liked the way the author painted the verbal picture of this quaint village. The characters were well developed and the story was charming. Predictable without much drama. Reminded me of the Mitford series.
yes... I will probably continue reading the series but need something with some action for the next few. It was a charming story but not engrossing.
This author is now one of my favorites. The story was so well told and easy to follow. The narrator was excellent. If you loved the "HELP".... you will like this even more. At times it was disturbing to my heart but it showed how depraved people can be. I loved the way the author developed the characters.
I really enjoyed the interaction between the young "Avenia" and Papa. He was so tender to her little heart that needed to belong. I soaked up the part where he assured her he would always be her family.
Belle... was the most remarkable character. The way she held to truth and was unafraid to defend even though she had been so mistreated.
This was an insightfully written book that made one stop and think about how we treat others. The best part of the book was the reader. She was one of the best I have heard.
