I almost put this book down. I never put a book down unread so that is saying something. I am really glad I kept reading.

This book begins with Jimmy who has a think Scottish accent that is hard to read. The first two maybe three chapters were unbearably long. While the accent stays at least the dialogue thins and the narrator helps make the book comprehendible. The story is a beautiful one of true manhood and preserverence. I felt such and aching for Dannie and Mary that it was a physical tightn

I read At the Foot of the Rainbow because I have enjoyed other Stratton-Porter’s books such as Laddie and Freckles. My mother introduced me to Stratton-Porter many years ago when she asked me to find her a copy of Freckles because she loved the story in her childhood. I bought her an old copy of the book on eBay that I gave to her as a gift. Ever since then, I have always bought any Stratton-Porter book I find at a used bookstore.

At the Foot of the Rainbow is about two close friends that love t
Long, slow tragedy. If these people would just communicate they would have no problems.

Very good book. I found the story and characters entertaining. an 1800's love triangle. A secret is involved that the reader knows but not all of the characters know. A happy ending.

I have read several of the authors works, and have liked them all. However, this one title was difficult for me to finish... The storyline is very slow, and made (for me) interesting reading. It took me forever to finish this book and I found myself finishing it in segments, between which I would read other books, which I never do. I stuck it out to the end though, and I am glad I did. The ending was good, but not quite enough to justify sitting through the tediousness of the rest of the novel. ...more
I've read Girl of the Limberlost several times and found it thoroughly enjoyable, but this one ... not so much.
Pamela Joy Martin
Wonderful love story

love all her books this one the dialect takes getting used to . the charActers of Danny is such to be rare on this earth
I adore everything Mrs. Porter wrote! The thick Scottish was hard to read at first but you soon begin to flow with it.
It was a little slow starting for me, I even nearly quit it (like I had years before in my teens), but near the end I couldn't put it down! I adore the beauty Mrs. Porter describes for us and how we always get our happy ending!

I didn't like this particular book as much as I have other Gene Stratton-Porter novels. It wasn't resolved to my satisfaction and I think it had rather a cynical viewpoint. Gene always wrote well, though, so even though I didn't care for the story, I'm glad I read the book.
I finished it, but this one was just too much for me. Like Steinbech with a happy ending?--which makes it nothing like Steinbech! =) The only redeeming quality was the lone, perfectly selfless man, who was too clueless for his own, or anyone else's, good.
I love Gene Stratton Porter and have read most of her works. This one was heavy on the drama, but I liked it. I love how Porter portrays powerfully good characters who have incredible integrity.
I liked this book because it had my name in it. That never happens. Through out the book I also saw peices of poetry. That was also very cool. It didn't have much of a plot though.
Interesting storyline and full of warmth. Written with colloquialisms and a dialect so it takes a bit to get into it but well worth the effort. August book club choice

Yet another book read from INDIANA's own, Gene Stratton Porter. My goal is to read them all since they are considered INDIANA classics.
Michelle Wardhaugh
Definately not one of her best. It does show she didn't view all human relations through rose tinted glasses.
A wonderful book from on of my favorite Indiana authors.
Wish I could remember who I loan this one to.
Can't believe I didn't like a Gene Stratton-Porter. This was not very good.
