The beginning of this book was confusing.

For the most part, the entire book is written in short segments that range from a couple of paragraphs in length up to an entire page. Occasionally some would clock in at 1.5 to 3 pages in length before switching to the next group of characters and/or settings which was distinguished with a curlicue-thing. In fact it wasn't uncommon for 2-4 curlicues to appear on each double page spread. That's a heck of a lot of head hopping.

There were 8 key characters....more

Since I am a fan of christian historical romance fiction, this was a very good, quick read for me. It is facinating to "watch" as people find out how good their lives can be when they invite God to be the center of their lives. This journey for Jace and Maddie, and even Jace's sister Eden, to find God and to discover on their own a faith in Him, is wonderful. The storyline has had a few twists that even I was not ready for, so it was a great surprise and a joy to read.

I love all of Lori Wick’s books, and this one was no exception. However, I don’t believe this is one of my favorites

What I liked: I loved the small town setting and the insight into what life was like in the “western days.” I also liked the natural questions Maddie asked about spiritual things. She had never been taught that heaven existed or how to prepare for death, and her pastor talked around the answers, never satisfying her hunger. The natural progression of her doubts were believable and...more

I wasn't very impressed with the author's ability to keep things clear at the beginning of the story. There are several people/families that the story is switching back and forth between. There wasn't enough lead up or information on the characters initially. I kept wondering who was who.

After I got past that, I enjoyed the overall story. A romance that highlights the importance communication plays in relationships. Nice reminder about how easy it can be to misunderstand, and how we need to kee...more

This book is a love story between Jace and Maddie. Unfortunately, his sister tries to break them apart as she feels she knows what is best for her brother. After a time Jace has a visit from his sister, and she is very different. She shares an amazing testimony about the L-rd and how she experienced His love and love from other believers. Great book for everyone, especially those questioning if G-d is real.

This book kept my interest and touched my heart in a way a book hasn't in awhile. Looking...more

This was an interesting Wick book to read...different than her others in that both of the main characters were not 'saved' as they usually are in her books. It made for a little deeper characters, more growth through the book.
Barbara
This book is very confusing, with too many characters that the author can't always define and describe clearly. I know that Jace and Maddie are the romantic leads, destined to be together. Eden is Jace's older sister, who tells a terrible lie that separates Jace and Maddie. However, Eden eventually converts to Christianity and repents of her actions by apologizing to Jace and helping to undo the damage her lie did to both Jace and Maddie.

There are characters named Doyle, Woody, and Cathi, but t...more

But before the relationship has a strong foundation, the couple separates because of gossip fueled by Jace's sister. Later, when she admits h...more

Apparently the Tucker Mills Trilogy is something that you have to read all the books if you want to know if Maddie and Jace find the answers to their religious questions.

I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. It start the prologue with no names or anything really and then jumped into the story. You would read maybe a page or page and a half if lucky and there would be a symbol/paragraph break and it would switch character perspective.
After got into the story I really want to know what ha...more

This was the best book I have ever read!
Kathleen
The reviews for this book weren't amazing but I still loved it just as much as some of Karen Kingsbury's books. it was fun and captivating. i thought the words were spiritual without being too pushy. and the romance was pure and easy.

I love the story of Jace Randall. I love how he falls in love with Maddie Shepard. I just love the book. This was the first book I read by Lori Wick, and I have loved her ever since. This book was very scintillating. I loved this romance story. I dont like how Eden treated Jace. I do like how Jace treated Maddie for the most part. I love Jace and Maddies relationship. It is a good one and they learn to love each other.

This is the beginning of the Tucker Mills trilogy, and the start is promising. I like the fact that Wick is taking her time to establish the characters and what's leading them to Christ, but doesn't try to ram the conversion into this book right away. Now we can see their relationship with God progress as the books continue.

I picked this up at a Wesley Owen sale. Lori Wick is billed as 'one of the most versatile Christian fiction writers in the market today'. Sadly I didn't find it well written; the Christian bit was too contrived and it raised more negative than positive thoughts.
Sarah
This was my first Lori Wick book. A bunch of my friends like her, so I picked this one up. It was fantastic! Good stories without being to "preachy" as some Christian fiction can get... Can't wait to read book 2.

Connie
Fast read. Set in the 1800's. Left me wanting to read more about the characters. Looking forward to book two in the series.
Leslie
Can't believe I actually read the whole thing. Not well wrtitten and never resolved issues or had much conclusion.
Grace
THIS BOOK IS AWESOME!!!! It's a true fight for true love, a man chasing a woman, a fight for understanding.
Kristen
Based in 1830. About young couple who meet but have different issues on trust. I enjoyed it.
Mary
So far I like it-but there are many characters introduced in the first few pages!
Jenny
Not too bad some of her books are getting to be pretty sappy this one wasn't too bad.
David
It did burn 900 miles to Minneapolis and back, and my wife liked it. Feh.
Tessa Nelson
Good book. Always enjoy this era. Also enjoyed the Christian perspective.
Marie
