A delightful surprise!!! I picked this book during one of the $4.95 deals and did not know what to expect. I loved it! This is an inspirational romance and mystery. It is actually two stories about two different women (one from 1912 and one from today). The story goes back and forth between the two stories, eventurally connecting these two women. I will definitely look for more books from this author. Jennifer
Amazing story! This book is fabulous! This book is about two girls/women whose lives are worlds apart yet so close. The book goes back and forth between the life of Molly, ( 2011) and Vivian/Dorothy ( 1920-1930's) both orphaned and forced to grow up too fast. These two lives meet and an unlikely friendship follows that will change the path of their future forever. I only wish their had been an epilogue.
I did enjoy the book but the writing was somewhat immature. It made me wonder if this was the author's first attempt at a novel. It was not well-written. Several descriptions of the main character's desire for his wife were repeatedly described the same way with the same wording. In addition, I did not care for the narrator. She was unable to do male voices. I would not recommend this book unless it was a daily deal.
One Plus One is a delightful novel about two unlikely people falling in love. Jojo Moyes is a fabulous storyteller. This novel is uplifting, entertaining and fun. Unlike "Me Before You", this is a lighthearted story. It does not have the deep thought-provoking subject matter that some of her other books possess.
This is a Christian romance where a young woman must choose to defy her father in order to preserve her self respect and happiness. She is forced to flee her family and the privileged life she has known and travel north. She endures many hardships but finds purpose and love. This is a light and easy listen with a good message and happy ending.
This was an enjoyable, light romance and mystery combined with a Christian theme. I felt it was a bit predictable and I never felt compelled to listen. I liked it but did not love it. It is uplifting and does have a happy ending.
Defending Jacob is a thought-provoking novel that will have you pondering the ending for days. I kept thinking, what would I do if I were in the same position of the mother or the same position of the father. The author is clever and presents equally compelling arguements for the defense and the prosecution. In the end, you suspect the truth but you don't know for sure. Very entertaining with lots of twists and turns.
This was an amazing, inspirational, true story about the Washington University Crew team from the 1930's. The main character Joe Rance has an especially unbelievable story as his father essentially abandoned him at the age of 15. He had to learn to fend for himself in the midst of the great depression. This story is about the underdog beating the odds and making history. You will learn a great deal about the sport of rowing.
The is a captivating novel that you will have trouble putting down. It is a compelling mystery and very entertaining, however, I was disappointed with the ending. I would have given it five stars but the ending seemed rather abrupt with several loose ends. Maybe there will be a second book.
Warning, if a lesbian love scene will offend you, then this book is not for you. This is a story of two women from very different backgrounds who have plotted against the other only to realize they have fallen in love. This book was somewhat bizarre and unexpected. Not at all what I thought it would be about. Nevertheless, it was well-written and entertaining. I was struck by the complete powerlessness of women in the past.
This is a novel about two men who met during wartime, beat the odds and survived horrific circumstances. They went on to partner in business and enter their own personal wars as oil tycoons. Throughout the book, the author refers back to an earlier time in Holland's life when he had a brief encounter with Bonnie and Clyde. I never understood why this was significant. This book did not seem to flow. At the end, I felt there were several unanswered questions.
