2.0 out of 5 stars It was not great
The book had a good storyline with lots of interesting characters, but the amount of bible talk spoiled it for me. Just not my scene, might suit others. I just skipped the pages that went on and on about God.

i only got this book because it was free. as soon as i started reading it i loved it. set in the late 1800s, its a story of a strong woman who takes a job on a ranch away from home, to look after a bitter man and his young daughter. life has dealt her terrible blows and she needs to find herself.
i dont think the talk of her god takes anything away from her story. it is all in context and not overdone.
i couldnt wait to get work done so i could start reading this book. its not my usual type of book, which is family drama. i liked it so much i will now have to buy the next three, but it is a stand alone book as it completes abbys story. i would recommend it

4.0 out of 5 stars More than a romance nobel, 19 May 2011
Like one of the other reviewer's, I got this book as it was free for the kindle. I knew when I ordered it that it isn't what I would normally choose to read, however I was very pleasantly surprised. This book is far from being just a romance novel, it takes you on a journey that makes you question your own beliefs and faith. As a very non-religious person, this novel made me look at grief and loss in a very different light. I'm not converted by any means, but there is a strong message of forgiveness throughout the book that we could all take something from. It was a thoroughly engaging and enjoyable read.

Couldn't put it down, every moment I had I was sneaking a read of it. It was great. So didn't want it to end. Must try the rest in the series now. Fabulous good old fashioned read. Enjoyable.

This review is from: Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek Book #1) (Kindle Edition)
Enjoyed reading this book. Easy to read and once started difficult to put down. It is the second book by this author I have read and it was just as good. I am now going to the library to find some more by this author.

Good story with challenging themes of forgiveness and honour. Not religious but thought provoking about a personal relationship with a God who cares.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish!, 15 April 2013

This review is from: Daughter of Joy (Brides of Culdee Creek Book #1) (Kindle Edition)
Bought this book because it was free on Amazon. Very predictable storyline and far too many quotes from the bible. It was a bit like reading a religious pamphlet.
