Very much enjoyed this story, and the secondary story within it as told by letters. The story was beautiful and poignantly told. The characters were beautifully described, I felt like I was in their homes, and knew their family as they were described in the story.
The story of the harpist/nurse meeting the young American at her Mother's bed and breakfast was sweetly told. A tender romance with some family history mixed in to provide the reason for the trip from America. The village setting was we
This book was a nice, feel good, happy ending book. It's a quick read and fun to read. The main problem was the dialogue was so unrealistic. No one would actually say the things they said the each other. I would have given it four stars but I was laughing at the unrealistic events and dialogue. But overall a good book!
You could tell the author really knows Wales! It is a predictable LDS romance novel. However, I liked the fact that the heroine didn't truly convert to the Church until she thought he was gone forever from her life.
She didn't convert for him or for "true love" which I thought would happen.

One point that really bothered me was the author implied that people of other faith don't pray for real because they have set, formal, written prayers. I think people of other faiths can and do pray and have H

This author happens to be in my ward. This was her first based in the village her father grew up in Wales. I really enjoyed this book!! It's fun and
a good spiritual read!
3.8 stars. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. The author is in my ward, and I know her fairly well. She was born and raised in Wales. I loved the authentic feel to the book (set in Wales). She is a masterful writer when it comes to descriptions...I felt like I could really see the places she described. The story was cute and engaging, I liked the characters. It is blatantly LDS fiction, including a conversion story, but it wasn't done in an overly cheesy fashion (there were a few cheesy ...more
I liked the Welsh setting of this book. I appreciated Sarah Lewis' conversion, because it wasn't over dramatic or preachy. It was tastefully written.
Fun, quick read. I liked that the Pearsons were on a family history trip and were able to share the gospel by just being good people.
I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this book! It touched me in a way I needed right now. I hadn't ever heard of this author but was very impressed by her writing. There were a few parts that were over descriptive and seemed yo drag (scenery, history stuff), but the strong conversion story far out weighed any of that. It is truly a LDS read, but not pushy. I am excited to read more from this author.
This author doesn't write a hectic paced book but I enjoy the slower speed sometimes. Set in Wales where two Americans (mother and son)come to look for their ancestors. They meet Sarah, a nurse and gifted harp player, who is attracted to the son until she finds that his ancestors are the couple who have been the subject of rumor and speculation for years. And to top it off, they are Mormons!
I really enjoy the general story line but feel that there is so much extraneous verbiage that I scan along just picking up the story line and overlooking everything else. Normally, when I scan-read a book--especially as heavily as I did this one--it means an automatic two-star rating but this story kind of compensates for that a bit so I give this 3.
This book was a little slow getting started. In fact, I was ready to chuck it because I still wasn't excited about it at page 99, but I did like the last half of it.

I really enjoyed this book and both story's! The author described the country side in Ireland exactly how I imagined it to be.
One of my very alltime favorites. My book is falling apart due to re-reading. :)

I hope I get to meet this fantastic author, especially since she's local! :)
I loved it! I only wish I could have heard the Welsh accent.
