Pearl Hossfuss, teacher, flees to the Dakotah Territory from her father’s arranged marriage.
 
Carl Hegland,  carpenter, leaves Minneapolis to find work in the Dakotah Territory.
 
Ruby Torvold, proprietor, continues to thrive in Little Missouri.
The characters were well developed and easily loved. Strength in character, Ruby continued to lead by listening to God.

Nestled in the Bad Lands of the Dakotah Territory, Little Missouri begins to grow. Progress, I love the word. The excitement fell off each page when the growth became apparent. 
 
One of my favorite scenes happened when Cat gave birth to kittens-in an underwear drawer. I grew up with cats and kittens were all around my house. 
 
I love reading about the old west, not sure I’d want to live there. Yet, the comradery seemed stronger during that period of time. Seemed like people needed each other more.

The ending took me by surprise.

I love the O’Malley Seven. Kate, Jennifer, Lisa, Rachel Stephen, Jack and Marcus. All abandoned or orphaned as teens, who have made the choice to become a loyal, committed family.
 
The Guardian focused on U.S. Marshall Marcus O’Malley. He met directionally challenged Shari when she mistakenly opened the security door. Sparks flew immediately.
 
A federal judge murdered. Only one witness. Shari.
 
Now it’s Marcus’s responsibility to keep her safe.

I enjoyed this book more for the characters than the plot. (Plot was excellent.) I can’t seem to get enough of the family. Each one is interesting. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.

Jennifer O’Malley, Pedestrian, meets Tom Peterson. Love sparks.
 
This book played my heartstrings and left me wanting more. Jennifer and Tom are characters that one wants as neighbors. When Jennifer not only falls in love with Tom but also Jesus, the story moved to a higher level.
 
The feelings I had after the book were pure and good. I like that in a book. There’s no religious tone at all.

 

 
I can’t wait to read the series. I’m hooked.

Rebecca and Seth are in love. All is good until letters arrive from her father. She has inherited a position of power. She must return home, to a place Rebecca wanted to forget.
 
Enter a different realm, a place where the abstract becomes real and the unseen, seen. At times I thought this was a book by John Bunyan, Pilgrim’s Progress. (A classic allegory from 1678, and considered a significant work of English literature.)
 
In this story, unforgiveness was a powerful lesson, causing inner demons to materialize. The imagery jumped off the page.
 
I found myself caring for Rebecca and Seth. The love they had for one another can only be described as self-sacrificing and beautiful. No greater love does one have for another unless they lay their life down for the other. Sydney did a wonderful job portraying this love, in very expressive scenes.
 
There were twists I didn’t see coming, and the tension kept me reading. I found myself thinking about the characters in between readings. Great book and I look forward to the next one.

Sky stops in Tucumcari on her way to visit her sister in California. She’s hurt and meets Dr. Doug Elliot.
First, I want to say, I enjoy the Route 66 novellas.

Second, A Trip to Remember dropped an emotional bomb.

I expected this to be a girl meets a guy and romance blossoms. Was I ever wrong. Not sure if Route 66 is curvy, but this read had a twist and a turn.

Five-Stars are for those books that leave an emotional imprint. Accomplished.
A great Sunday afternoon read. So good, I’ve downloaded the sequel, A Tucumcari Christmas. Amazon  KindleUnlimited – yes

I read Ever After very slow, studying each page. I consider Karen Kingsbury a great author, one I’d like to emulate. Studying her style over a lifetime wouldn’t bring me close to understanding how she writes such moving stories. Her grasp of people, their personalities, conflicts and inner thoughts are so realistic. The depth of her writing brings the story into the real world.
 
In the book’s description, the reader is warned of a tragedy that will occur. It wasn’t difficult to figure out who or how, but the when was a mystery. Yet, as the time came, turning each page became more difficult. I didn’t want it to happen since I’d grown very fond of the character. The “what” of the tragedy remained hidden.
 
I’m not one to shed many tears, but with this book, they flowed on many occasions. When I thought it couldn’t hurt any deeper, it did.
Another great thing about this book: God spoke to the characters. Christianity was presented in an everyday way. Not at all religious.
 
Several years ago, I met an Iraqi lady. She had just moved to the United States. It made the war in Iraq personal. Mayassa was so grateful for America. Ever After made the Iraqi war personal showed the good the American soldiers did in Iraq. I know it’s true because I have friends that fought in Iraq who testified to the same things Karen wrote in Ever After.
 
Quotes I loved from the book: “Democracy will win in the end,” Justin Baker, Soldier.

“Some things were worth defending.”
