Cliché but a good read. There were some good subplots but the ending seemed a bit rushed.

HASH(0x8b76cbe8) out of 5 stars Oh my, what an amazing story! 12 Jun. 2012
By Love 2 Read Novels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Delicious (Delly) Williams has only been married a short time when she finds herself widowed. She is now responsible for raising the five children that belonged to her husband. Before he died, he gave her instructions to take the land deed and the children to his brother Zeke so they wouldn't be left alone and unprotected. Most especially from a man named Ira Bodine! When she finds Zeke he's about to take a wagon train west. He asks to marry her as a way of keeping her safe but she refuses. The last thing she wants is another husband. Zeke is somewhat relieved because the last thing he wants is to lose another wife on the trail. The trek west is fraught with danger and hardships. The things they face will push them to the very limits of their faith and human endurance. Will Zeke and Delly make it to the trails end and perhaps find an unexpected love along the way? Or will they meet the same fate of so many that have gone before them?

Oh my, what an amazing story! I loved the cover and the title, so I knew I had to give it try. I'm so glad I did. This story is an absolute page-turner from beginning to end! There was something happening on just about every page. You truly feel like you're on the journey west. All the characters were larger than life and fully fleshed out. You really got to know them and face every hardship with them, and let me tell you, there was a lot of hardship! I fell in love with Zeke. He's one of those guys that just makes you want to be in trouble so he can come rescue you! Delly was someone I really admired. She was full of spunk and grit but she also had a heart full of love. There were times though, I found myself saying, "Delly, what are doing?", when she would do something Zeke told her not to, which then got her into trouble. But she usually had a good reason (at least in her mind). I loved the interaction between Zeke and Delly and though there weren't many kisses, the romantic tension was excellent! As a reader, you find yourself rooting for them all the way through. I also appreciated the spiritual truths that were so naturally brought to light in the story. You'll have to read it to find out what they are. If you're interested in traveling west, I definitely recommend you travel with Zeke and Delly in A Love for Delicious. I look forward to reading some of this author's other works.

HASH(0x8b76cc3c) out of 5 stars Very vivid experience of travel on the Oregon trail... 28 April 2013
By Mary Jane Kail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Just finished this book and would definitely recommend. I won't repeat the story as other reviewers have given a good idea of what it's actually about. But, I will expound on the fact that it was a cleanly written book, no sex and depicts very believable experiences that the pioneer's must have came up against on their travels to the western frontier. It sure makes you wonder why the women in particular were brave enough to even try it. Towards the end of the journey it seemed as if Delly was going to totally give up and being in her place I think I might have just sat down in the middle of it all and quit. I enjoyed the fact that the people were not strangers to asking God for help and even though there was only a few references to this it did bring to light that without their faith in God they might not have made it.
If you enjoy traveling back to the very beginning of our country's growth and expansion you will like reading this book as it makes you feel as if you are right in the midst of it. The people you'll meet along the way become very real and you'll definitely fall in love with Zeke. He's a charmer.

HASH(0x8b76cf18) out of 5 stars This one is hard to review! 25 Jun. 2014
By Jacasni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Delicious" is a hard working very young woman (do I remember that she is only 18?) who loves her stepchildren that she has only known for a short time, just as if she had given birth to them all. She headed west to fulfill her promise to her dead husband who was borderline abusive, taking his five children on a wagon train, without wagon or supplies to speak of. She encounters the experienced wagon master who, it so happens, is the wonderful, kind younger brother to her dead husband, and uncle to the children.

The way she second guessed every order he gave....and made her own rules, absolutely drove me crazy. She paid for her mistakes with injuries, and losses over and over, but still did as she pleased, thinking she knew better than "Zeke" who was completely in love with her and tried to protect her, even when she was so headstrong.

Never did figure out the "deed" thing. That made no sense. What was it about?

I don't know...... This author writes well...but I can't figure where she was coming from, ....if this expressed a problem with authority, or if she just didn't realize that a real traveler with Delly's mind set,would never have made it to Oregon alive.

I would read this author's books again, but I have to say that as devoted to the children as she was, I didn't much like Delicious. She was somewhat of a train wreck, but I thought Zeke was terrific. Oh well..... Pretty unrealistic story, ....but it's fiction, right?

HASH(0x8b76ce10) out of 5 stars Good story but... 12 July 2014
By S. Dalrymple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the story very much, however I was truly disturbed by the author's portrayal of Indians. I am Native American so maybe I'm a little sensitive to her remarks, but either Ms. Hickey is ignorant or racist. I hope it is ignorant. Being an author she should do her research. She made references to the Indians being smelly & dirty...the fact is they were very clean. Natives actually were disgusted by the white people's hygiene. They use to say that is what gave the white man away - his smell. Whites were easy to track because of it. Also, the term squaw was used a lot. It is a "white" word & was derogatory. Sort of like calling a woman a slut. Many books use that term & I could have overlooked it if not for all the other negative references. There wasn't a positive image of an Indian portrayed in this entire book. They were a people who had their homes stolen from them, their way of life destroyed. They were treated with hatred & anger. Not all Indians were good people but like today's society, most were. I just ask for a little respect.

HASH(0x8b76e018) out of 5 stars Slow Down...What's The Hurry 18 July 2012
By JK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an OK read but the writer seems to move to fast. At every turn something terrible happens and for some reason Delicious can't seem to understand that with 5 children see needs the help of her brother-in-law which leads to most of her problems.
