I didn't like the many quotes from the Bible, all designed to inspire the reader to a better life through (the author's) Christian faith. I really did not enjoy this book, even though I stuck it out to the bitter~ actually sugar sweet~end.
Despite the mixed reviews of this book, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it. While it was clear how the story would end right from the start, the unique idea of a society woman being a dime-novelist over-shone the predictability of the plot. I really liked the character of Lilly and watching her relationship with Jackson grow. This was a sweet romance, and I don't think they even kissed until the last page, but it seemed appropriate for the time period. Likewise, Lilly's dilemma over whether she should settle for a "content" marriage with Harlan was one that I'm sure a lot of women in the late nineteenth century struggled with. I really got a sense of the time period when I was reading this novel, and I didn't feel that any of the characters were caricatures. It was interesting to see the secret life of Lilly's sister-in-law, Irene, come to the surface, and it explained her earlier bizarre behaviour.Read more ›
I am a new owner of Kindle and this book did inspire me - to finally look how to delete the books off it.
I have perservered as far as Chapter Ten and I can't bear to read any more.
Weak, dull, boring characters who it's really hard to like or believe in, quotes from the bible scriptures being used on almost every page, constant descriptions of how the lead lady is a 'good Christian woman' ...... need I go on? The lead man is as dull as dishwater and has no personality at all and the leading lady is weak, vapid and I'd quite gladly see her not get her man.
I understand that the author feels strongly about her religion and wants to try her hand at writing a romance novel - but trying to combine the two things hasn't worked at all. I felt that I was being preached to with every page that I turned and no-one wants that while they are chilling out with their Kindle on the sofa after a long day in the office!
This one is only good for the Christian bookshop 'Young Adult' section. Free or not, it's a waste of space on my Kindle and I'm going to delete it.
