Roanoke Village (Roanoke: Memories of Isabel Book 1)
Roanoke Village (Roanoke: Memories of Isabel Book 1)

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing story, 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this story very confusing and disjointed to read. I couldn't tell if it was a factual account or a story. Some parts rang true but others seemed made up. Overall I enjoyed it as an introduction to a fascinating era of American history

Colour is not quite as the image (looked more like a sea green but it is a dark forest green) so doesn't match my hall carpet as well as I hoped it would. It does a good job of keeping said carpet clean of mud etc so i'm happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting setting!, 24 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find ancient Egyptian history fascinating and this novel exploring one intriguing facet of the time - mummification - is illuminating on the whys and wherefores of how it was carried out. It also paints a absorbing picture of every day life at this time. You get the feeling it could turn into a series with Neti-Kerty being the pathologist and Shabkah the Egyptain detective, if so, hopefully the characters will become more well rounded.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent summary, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An excellent summary which highlights the ordeals and incredible fortitude of the people in the party and their recuscuers. I did however find that the accounts written by the individuals in the "History of the Donner Party, a Tragedy of the Sierra" more moving and engrossing as these were told by the individuals who had actually been on this awful journey. I read the accounts first, I admit they can be slightly confusing as they are not told in a strictly linear way but they really grip the reader. I read the B. Scott Christmas story afterwards which gave a clear, unbiased picture of the journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing historically true story, 23 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm lucky to have been over the Sierra Nevada mountains but in the warmth of a modern train - breathtaking scenery! How some of these people managed to survive the hardships is truly amazing and humbling - I feel guilty now saying I'm cold in my centrally heated house. I was moved by these true accounts of the tragedy, you felt as if you were part of it rather than just reading about it. I also downloaded to my kindle the B. Scott Christmas version of the story but I'm glad I read the real accounts first. Thank you to the volunteers who converted them so I could.

My old 2005 Family Tree Maker would not upload on my new laptop so decided to buy the new version. The layout has been redesigned a bit but it's still user friendly and being able update straight from the internet to my copy is a a very useful tool

Bought for my daughter - just what she wanted - a lovely feel to the leather - a useful size which fits in her bag with sufficient slots for her cards and being a funky pink can't get lost in the bag equals lots of brownie points. Intend to buy myself one!

I bought the red one so it can be seen easily in my bag - a good reading light but it works too well at times as it is too easy to switch on unintentionally and find it lit when next used.
