A Hopeful Heart

On 7/29 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: While I enjoyed the story, it was so far fetched that it dampened my enthusiasm for it. Hannah Glick, a widow, works in a hotel as a maid to make ends meet after the passing of her husband. Her late husband's brother works on her farm to keep their horse business alive. He also is and has always been, ... Mostly a good read, but very unbelievable

The House that Love Built

The House that Love Built

On 5/27 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: Unfortunately this is not a Wiseman home run. It seems her writing has suffered somewhat as she has ventured away from her best selling Amish genre. Something about her characters (Brooke and Owen) seems flat and somewhat predictable. The beginning is a bit confusing as you are rocketing between 3 or ... Mediocre at best

Faithful to Laura

Faithful to Laura

On 3/29 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: As many other reviewers stated, this book is confusing. It starts with her dreaming, and then there are several competing story lines that keep shifting your focus around. I wasn't aware, but apparently this is the second book in a series. I'm guessing if you read the first one (Treasuring Emma I think) ... Confusing, and difficult to stick with at times

This Scarlet Cord

This Scarlet Cord

On 11/11 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: I really enjoyed this, as Rahab is one of my favorite biblical women. I've read just about every fiction book written about Rahab, and this one was certainly unique. Unfortunately I cannot tell you WHY without spoiling the story for you. Rahab, a young and beautiful farmer's daughter finds herself kidnapped ... Great story, however unlikely

God Loves Broken People

On 9/5 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: When I received this book from Booksneeze I was really excited to read it. However, in the beginning I really struggled to get in to it. Then, I ended up unexpectedly struggling with health issues and put the book aside for quite a long time. (Sorry Booksneeze) Eventually I picked the book back up and ... Slow to start, but worthwhile over all

KJV American Patriot's Bible

On 3/4 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: The first thing I noticed about this book was the quality of it's construction. (I received the hard cover KJV of this bible.) The book is solid, with a good binding, nice quality cover material, and beautifully rendered art work throughout. The pages are not your typical "onion skin" pages that you ... Amazing Quality

An Amish Wedding

An Amish Wedding

On 1/13 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: I am a great fan of Amish fiction, so I was eager to read "Amish Wedding" when it was released. Imagine my distress when my copy went missing after a cross country flight! Eventually I was reunited with the book and able to finish it. Amish Wedding is a collection of 3 stories, basically comprised of ... Amish wedding bliss

A Year with Jesus

A Year with Jesus

On 10/31 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: I've found that devotional type books can often be dry, or worse yet, full of the Author's twisted version of the truth. I was pleased to find that this devotional is neither! A year with Jesus is focused on the words spoken by the Lord as recorded in the (NIV) Bible. Each daily devotional includes ... Excellent daily devotional

The Wonder of Your Love

The Wonder of Your Love

On 9/22 OriginalCountryGirl wrote: Beth Wiseman does it again! The second book in the “Land of Canaan” series “The wonder of your love” is just as terrific as the rest of her novels have been! This book focuses on the Amish widow Katie Ann, after she was abandoned by her husband Ivan, who ran off with an “Englischer” named ... 2nd Land of Canaan series is just a great as the first!
