As it was, she was forever helping out with animals on the Blazing B ranch, and on neighboring ranches.She had saved money for her continuing education, and planned to leave in the ... Mystical!
On 8/4 Macy Twain wrote: If you like mysteries, you’ll like this book. If you enjoy romance, you’ll like this book. If you enjoy family drama and reconciliation, you’ll like this book. Me? I loved this book. Libby has a lot thrown at her in a short amount of time: an inherited property from an absentee father, complete ... Bravo!
On 7/5 Macy Twain wrote: I really liked this book. I confess I finished it at least a week ago, and am still thinking about it. As you know, I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and this one is based loosely on the Ponca Indian tribe. Near the end of the book, there’s a speech by Standing Bear, which is one of the only ... Fantastic historical fiction
On 6/17 Macy Twain wrote: “But first, I have to tell you about the stupidest thing I ever did………….” Sam is your typical high school kid. He is quite popular, and has lots of friends. Ok, not really. He’s not typical and he doesn’t have a lot of friends. He totally blames his dad for that. Sam, is, however, a ... Don't Miss This One!!
On 6/2 Macy Twain wrote: I don’t know that this is a book in a series as much as there are other titles that focus on other characters that show up in this book. Since I got this as an e-book, I’ll address that first. At the very beginning, there is a family tree. It’s not possible to adjust the settings so images get ... Too Many Characters
On 5/21 Macy Twain wrote: Generally speaking, I really love this genre. In this case, there is really too much going on for this to be a really gripping story. I like the idea of a secret. I’m not Amish, of course, but this secret didn’t seem to be one that warranted the father’s behavior. Then there was the love story: ... Ho Hum
On 5/6 Macy Twain wrote: This was an ok debut novel. I don’t mind a first person perspective, nor do I mind a multiple-character first person perspective. What I strongly dislike, though, is first person present tense. In this book, not only were we changing characters, but we were changing tenses, too, and this for me, really ... Ok Debut Novel
On 5/2 Macy Twain wrote: I’m usually able to look for the positives in books, but this one leaves me struggling. This title was extremely difficult for me to get through. I felt like the author said the same things over and over and over again and found myself wondering why the book was as long as it was, because all of the ... Not My Cup of Tea
On 3/25 Macy Twain wrote: I have to say, this title was right up my alley. If you’ve read any of my other reviews, you’ve no doubt figured out that I generally enjoy Amish fiction. This book is Amish fiction with a twist. Rachel is doing just fine helping her daed on the farm. Since her brother James’ death, she’s ... Nice Twist!
On 3/24 Macy Twain wrote: This is not the book for people who are short on time or just want an overview of the events of December 1941. To date, this title took me longer to read than any other book I can remember. Ever. Normally, I’m not keen on books that drag on and on and take significant amounts of time to get through. ... A MUST Read
On 3/3 Macy Twain wrote: I normally really like historical fiction. I’ve read some other biblical fiction type of books that have been very good. This title wasn’t bad, but it didn’t push any of my buttons one way or another. It could have been a re-telling with details that left you hanging on your seat, waiting to ... Ho Hum at Best
On 2/20 Macy Twain wrote: I really enjoyed this book. It’s a classic reminder of not only “Don’t judge a book by its cover” combined with “You can never know a person unless you’ve walked a mile in their moccasins.” I totally identified with Kat, who spent her childhood trying to meet the expectations of her parents. ... Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover
On 2/19 Macy Twain wrote: I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The advertisement right at the beginning snagged my interest: HEIRESS WANTED Looking for hardworking, professional woman of good character and pleasant disposition willing to learn the ranching business in Arizona Territory. Must be single and prepared to remain so ... Western Challenge!
On 2/16 Macy Twain wrote: This book was some good reading! While it is a sequel to The Traveler’s Gift which I have not read, overall, I think it wasn’t necessary to have read the first book. There were a few characters that I assume were in the first book that weren’t really needed in this one. Not having read the first ... Some Good Reading!
On 2/11 Macy Twain wrote: This book was totally not what I expected based on the above description. Yes, there was a cowboy recently retired from the rodeo circuit to spend more time with his family. One of the main characters, though, was Connor, the high school senior son of rodeo cowboy Lucas and his wife. There were a few ... Not what I expected
On 2/9 Macy Twain wrote: The subject concept is compelling, and the characters are relatively well written. This was a fast read for me. In addition to information about the author at the end and discussion questions, there is also a section from the author that is for “deeper consideration.” Honestly, I wanted more. Because ... Interesting Plot
