His beloved Montana comes to life such that you can hear the constant wind, feel the biting cold, taste the dust of the dry years, smell the sheep pens at shearing time, and see the vast expanses of prarie fading into the impossibly rugged mountains.

Damaged is an intriguing Canadian medical legal thriller that grips the audience from the moment that a horrified Kate feels remorse that she allowed her fears to overwhelm her sense of decency as she knew the grandma made a strong appeal in the interest of her granddaughter. The key to the story line is Kate who is a classic scaredy cat who ends up in "Hell", which could have broken her or given her a backbone of steel. Fans will enjoy a sort of coming of age tale as the women who always chose flight now must choose fight for the first time in her life against a powerful influential opponent.
Love's Pursuit takes place in Massachusetts during the Puritan era. Romantic Christian Fiction. Story is very good. Poor audio quality. Poor narration.
Jane Kirkpatrick weaves an intricately beautiful tale about a young girls heart and a gentleman's desire. She pulls you into the story and leaves you with that warm, cozy feeling. I look forward to the next book in the series!
Compelling and absorbing, the story draws you in. Sad premise for a book, heart-wrenching. Surprising ending leave you stunned.
