Jacey Mathews fingered the heavy scar across her throat, hidden by the high collar of her dress, and wondered if she had let illness become an excuse for not remaining active in the faith that had once filled her with happiness. Could she regain that faith? Uncle Charlie had thought so, but since his death she wasn't sure she could do it alone. Dreams had kept her alive, b ...more

Shelves: lds-fiction
This is probably my favorite book out of all of Jennie Hansen's. It is set in the Manti/Ephraim area, where I lived until I moved last year. I enjoyed being able to see the area where the book was taking place while I read it. It is a believable story and I loved the characters.

I started reading this about 10 pm last night and ended about 1 am. This morning I remember...hmm...that I liked the story, although initially I thought it was set in some earlier time period because of how smothered and pampered the main character was (although there were no computers or cell phones in the story so still an older setting than "today"). It was nice that the main character showed some self-awareness and took steps to grow up. However, despite the reasons for her EXTREMELY doormat ...more

I had a difficult time liking the main character of this book largely because her dependence is so 19th-century in a 21st-century world. You almost picture this woman in some dark-ages society where little thought or backbone is required to live if you're female. Jacey so personifies the concept of the "weaker sex" here that my impatience was only slightly assuaged by her evolutions as the book progressed.

She has had thyroid cancer, and because of a family history of debilitating illness, her fa

This is a clean LDS romance. I looked on amazon for some LDS authors. I hadn't read anything by Jennie Hansen for several years. It was a nice read.

This is one of my favorite Jennie Hansen books. She brings a unique tale to life and has the reader feeling the emotions caused by so many trialas and frustrations of life. This is a tale of a young woman filled with a feeling of hopelessness and doubt until a fresh start is made available through the death of her beloved uncle that allows her to begin again in a new place.

I really enjoyed this clean romance about a young woman who had cancer and how she had let her parents, sister, and fiance run her life and make her decisions for her. Of course, she eventually learned to stand on her own feet and that she really didn't love her bossy fiance, but did love the turkey farmer next door. I would recommend the book.

I almost always have a hard time when a character had to go back to their origins in order to overcome their struggles, but this is a little more understandable. Blegh, always the miscommunication! I loved his sister though... sort of!
Danica Page (One Page at a Time)
I liked this book. It wasn't my favorite, but it was a good read. I liked Jacey Matthews and George a lot. Jacey has been too sheltered her entire life, and I liked seeing her stand up for herself.

Again it has been about 10 years since I've read this but I remember loving this author and reading a ton of her books. So it must not be too bad.
Jul 22, 2011 Chica114 rated it it was amazing
The fact that I still remember enjoying this book thoroughly 12 years ago makes me give it 5 stars. Plus I don't think I'd mind owning it.

An easy read with a fairly good story line even though it was somewhat predictable. I like a read like this occasionally.

This is one of her earliest books and I really liked it. It had a lot of humor in with the romance.
