"... another spritely early American romance." (Romantic Times, Top Pick review)
the main charicter in this story is amazing shes a Hoot! its not a sappy type of love story in fact i didnt realize it was a love story till tward the end full of everything a good story could hold i recomend it
I really enjoyed Hope, who was true to her name. This was quite an uplifting story with lots of information making me want to research German immigrants to that region. I wasn't sure of what religious group they might have been affiliated with (i.e. Mennonite, Lutheran,...?). They probably said and I just missed it. The narrator was quite good too.
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
This was an encouraging and delightful story. I want to be more like Hope, the main character. She was so full of energy and always looked at the glass as half -full. She could find a blessing in any situation. Everyone could benefit from her example. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and finished it in 2 days. Jennifer
I really enjoyed Fancy Pants, so I had high hopes for this one and am not disappointed. I really enjoyed the use of clichés, that definitely fit my since of humor. I liked how she paused with various characters' inner dialogue to deepen certain aspects of the story. The death seemed abrupt, kind of rushed, so if I could, I'd give it 4 1/2 stars, but I'd love to read more like this.
I loved this book... Even the second time around! I had listened to it some time back, but decided it was worth repeating. The narrator did a terrific job. My favorite character was Hope. She was spunky with a very positive outlook on life. She was a wonderful example of a proverbs 31 woman. I would recommend this book to ladies of all ages.
was not a fan of the main character's backwards hillbilly speach. though wise in thought, she just came off as idiotic. took way too long to get beyond it all. never really connected to any of the characters, very predictable ending.
so nice to be nourished and uplifted by a positive read. definitely looking for more of this author stories.
I hadn't heard of the author previously so this was a pleasant surprise. Great characters, great story, funny, and witty. Most importantly, rightfully spiritual. Also a great narrator!
