Annie Sweetwater wasn’t like other girls. All her life everyone she’d ever known had told her so. Except Luke Carpenter, who never let her limp blind him to seeing her as she really was: a woman grown, full of dreams, desires and hopes for a future — with him!

Once in a while a book comes along that touches you. As I read Sweet Annie, I realized I was reading one of those special stories. I am a huge fan of Cheryl St. John. She has never shied away from difficult subjects in her novels. In her story Sweet Annie, Annie Sweetwater is a young woman who was born with a bad leg and lives in a wheelchair, never permitted to do anything that might endanger her by her overprotective family. On her tenth birthday party, a visiting Luke Carpenter,14 years old, ...more

I was really enjoying this story of a disabled woman breaking out of her shell and demanding people see her as the fully-actualized woman she was, until the author went and annoyed me at the end. Until then, it was a lovely story of two people who left lasting impressions on each other as children falling in love many years later as adults. Luke was patient, determined and kind as he encouraged Annie to live life on her own terms. Both laughed, loved and enjoyed life just a little bit more in ea ...more

Annie Sweetwater has always been different from the rest of her family and friends in the small town of Copper Creek, Colorado. She was born with a bad hip that makes her limp. Her family adores her but also are over protective of her, at times thinking of her as a doll rather than a person.

When she was ten years old, Annie met Luke Carpenter - who had just moved to Copper Creek with his uncle - and he made her two wonderful gifts: took her for a horse ride, and he treated her like a normal girl

ANNIE SWEETWATER WAS A LITTLE CRIPLED YOUNG WOMAN, BUT THAT DID NOT STOP HER FOR MARRYING THE GORGEOUS LUKE CARPENTER. SHE LOVED HIM, SINCE SHE WAS TEN YEARS OLD AND NEVER FORGOT, HOW HE TREATED HER AS A PERSON AND NOT A WEAK LITTLE GIRL, LIKE HER PARENTS AND BROTHER. HE GAVE HER, HER INDEPENDENCE, THAT SHE ALWAYS WANTED!!!

Book #1 in the Copper Creek Bride Series

"Out of all the men who could have ridden into her life and received her favor, he'd been the one she wanted. He would do anything for her, anything to please her, anything to see her smile, hear her laugh, win her kiss."

"Look at you. You're a strong, healthy man. Why would you want a girl like Annie, who can't possibly do everything a normal woman can? Those words pierced Luke's heart- and lodged anger in his soul."

I'm torn here...I want to give this a horrible rating but I liked the character Annie...

First off, having a limp because one leg is longer than the other is a cheap ass way of writing a crippled character. Own it and give her something really gimpy; this is fiction, I want DRAMA!

Second, this is yet another cripple-discovers-s/he-is-more-capable-than-previously-thought-once-a-3rd-party-treats-them-like-a-normal-person. I know this seems like it's not a bad thing but I cannot get on my milk carton

I loved this sweet love story! It was uplifting and simple with just enough drama to keep you interested! I did get frustrated at one or two points in the book, but that is also why I loved it. If there was no drama or misunderstandings, there would be no story. I teared up while reading twice. Very well written and the characters are lovable. It is a must read for anyone wanting a simple historical !
Caitlyn
Very nice sweet historical (western) romance. I always enjoy this author. Her stories are simple yet complicated at the same time. In Sweet Annie the hero and heroine really work to be together despite family odds. But then life throws them a curve ball that tests them greatly.
Jessica
Great storyline, tender romance showing the vulnerabilities of the two protagonists. Nicely developed plot and characters too.

It was a beautiful book conveying a beautiful message

Sweet Annie is one of Cheryl St. John's most inspiring and "sweet" romances perfect for any teen or adult. Annie is one woman, even though lame with one leg, has the willpower and need to be normal like most women her age. Her parents treat her like she is a fragile doll because of her handicap. But that doesn't stop Annie from walking and loving Jacob her soul mate.

Aw Jacob! What a man. He feels he is not good enough for Annie but like two moths to a flame, they can't stay away from each other

Annie is a girl who has always been given everything any girl could ever want, well anything but the option to have her own opinions. This was the very first time I had read an American based historical romance and anything by Cheryl St.John. In response to both I have to say that I was quite impressed.

Cheryl St. John has an amazing ability to write very human characters. Even if the story is hackneyed, her characters make the read worthwhile.
