Category: Interesting


During her childhood, a young girl listens to her parents argue, divorce, and eventually die.

Alexandra Winslow writes crime stories to escape. Midway through college, she finishes a novel and publishes it under the pseudonym Alexander Green. This creates a double life that isolates her.


I enjoyed the omniscient point of view writing style of Steel. The story moved smoothly like a steady stream.

I like one particular line in the book, “Sex gets in the way of love.” That statement spoke volumes about the personality of Alex.

I’ll long remember Alexandria Winslow, and will always wonder how she could live in the shadows of greatness. As a writer and author myself, I felt encouraged.

What a great read and powerful ending.

Vacant Eyes by Christine

(I was given an advanced copy.)


The opening scene: A woman left for dead.


Eighteen months after the assault, Brynn desires a normal life. Yet, when the past appears in visions, Brynn wants answers. The course she chooses may get her killed.
 

Brynn, when she wasn’t working alongside her husband Jackson at their 2400-head hog facility, enjoyed drawingold abandoned houses.

Non-stop action from page one. It felt like being on the Autobahn, speeding toward a destination. Or. Since the book’s setting was on a farm; flying out of my cousin’s barn holding onto fast-moving sheep. What I’m saying is: I couldn’t put the book down.

While reading, many questions formed in my mind, driving me forward. Page after page the tension stayed high, with a few moments of calm. (The rhythm of the writing was great.)


Brynn and Jackson’s kids were
 interesting. Sometimes pudding flew. (Reminds me of my house.)

This is a read, I’ll soon not forget and characters I’ll miss. Rarely do I read a book twice. This one I will. In fact, I’ve started reading it again. 

There are twists and turns that make this one excellent read. I tried to figure out the book before the last page. I failed with an ending I didn’t see coming.

What a great read. I look forward to any future book Christine may write.

Nora Johanson travels from Norway to the Dakota Plains to marry Hans. Those plans turn painful.
 
This book had several things I loved. One, children. Two, the Dakotas and Three, Love.
 
The plot is simple but the characters are deep and the need even deeper. Even when things go bad, God has a plan. Even when things get worse, God has a plan. Even when things look impossible…  You got it. God has a plan. I love how this story weaves God’s desires into His people’s lives.  
 
I look forward to the next book.

From Norway, Roald and Ingeborg Bjorklund travel. They arrive in New York City, then by train, followed by covered wagon, they arrive in the Dakota Territory.

I loved every step these pioneers took on their journey to America. The spirit and determination of Roald and Ingeborg along with Carl and Karren showed grit.

From the chaos after coming ashore, to the train busting through heavy snow, to the covered wagon pushing through mud, character shined. 

In a small way, it felt as though I were there. Excited I was when they received their first animals, built their first house, turned their first ground.

The adventure and newness of the untamed land didn’t always shine well on them. Hard work and unforgiving weather cost lives.

I have to add one part: Prior to reading this book, I took a tour of land in Nebraska. The tour guide also informed me of his family history. They arrived from Czelsovokia and farmed the land. This added to the enjoyment of Untamed Land since I had a real-life history lesson.

I look forward to the next book in this series.

Bailey is planning a wedding and making decisions that will shape her future. 

Wow! What a book to end this series. For me, it’s at the perfect time. My daughter, on eclipse day, became engaged to be married.

This story was beautiful, a picture of the love God’s given to His bride. Love flowed from each page, causing the read to flow like a fast river. In two sittings, I experienced the story. 

There were surprises a long the way. A visit to past stories and past memories. That’s what makes the Baxter family stories the best.

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.
