This is the best book in the world! It is my favorite.

Okay, it was fun. I have no idea how it got in my library bag, and neither of the girls will admit checking it out, but it was a quick fairly romantic read. Still can't handle that there's so little truth in what's supposed to be reality, but at least there's no gratuitous sex or foul language.

I thought this book was insightful into the lives of abusive relationships and how to learn to trust again, if you are in that type of relationship. I also loved that there was no swearing in the book or any sex. It was a wholesome book.

I enjoyed reading it, but I actually did predict the outcome from the get-go. I wasn't positive what would happen, but I was pretty sure. So that was a disapointment to me. Some parts were slow and on the boring side.

I have read 2 of the authors other books and I love the way she writes. This book was filled with mystery, suspense, abuse and love. She intertwines several peoples lives in an interesting way.

This is the kind of book that give Christian fiction a bad name. It was choppy, and not very well written. Not an author I will read again.

I love all of Alene Roberts books. This one leaves me wanting a little more at the end, but the way the story unravels is surprising.

I only gave this book a three even though I liked it because it deals with some very tough issues.

I can swing higher than the chicken coop. The fun of picking and chewing pine gum. Or every kid ought to have a cow like Blossom. I wish I could tell you all about these and dozens of other stories about my life, but I’ll try to pick out the highlights.

I was born in a small community in the Four Corners country of the American southwest. My father was a sheepman, cattleman, rancher, and owner of a
