This book sings!, June 3, 2012

This review is from: On Berryhill Road (Kindle Edition)
Some stories whisper to you, others shout. This one sings. I absolutely loved the author's voice in this book. I loved the story, the language, the pacing, the twists, the problems, the solutions. Most of all, I loved Fallon. I couldn't help rooting for her every step of the way, even when she made poor decisions and did/said things that pised me off. And I loved Donovan.

I was really excited about this book. Years ago I remember reading in a local (North West Florida) newspaper about Lyn. I forgot about her and this book until a couple of months ago. Having grown up in Milton, FL and still have family there, I was eager to read this book.

The book was sort of a let down for me. I gave it one star for the author being local, one-half a star for reading local streets, businesses, and points-of-interests in a published book, another one-half for the plot. Within the

This book was very different from what I had come to expect in a Tommie Lynn tale. It was not supernatural and there wasn't an over abundance of death and murder. There was some just not the over abundance I came to expect. This instead was more of a coming of age tale. The heroine struggles to be what she thinks she needs to be for everyone around her. Enter the hero who is also a broken soul. The question in this tale is can two broken souls be the fix for each other? It is a great read and th ...more

Won on goodreads. This is the story of how the daughter of Navy Chief James McKniere's struggles to make a life for herself and mother after a tragedy. Fallon meets Donovan who offers support and unconditional friendship. Donovan is also working through personal issues that are preventing him from moving on with his life. This story is sweet, sad, and has a little suspense toward the end. I really enjoyed the story of Fallon. I would have liked it more if the lose ends were tied up a bit more bu ...more

Captivating!

This is a well written story. The way the author wrote about the characters seemed to awaken my emotions as to what they were experiencing. I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next! I want more! I loved the fact that the main setting was in Milton, because it's surroundings are familiar to me.

Gripping story that's hard to put down.

Gripping story that's hard to put down.

Great story with a lot of drama. Each time I needed to to take a break from reading, I found it hard to put the book down. A good read for anyone who can relate to a life of struggle and hard times.

A little more on the romance side than I usually like. I still enjoyed the read and it shows the author's ability with the written word to keep me interested in the storyline rather than turned away by the romance. Nothing against romance novels just not my cup of tea.

An emotional ride, this book grabs a hold of you and doesn't let go. Fallon is a strong & heroic character who will leave a lasting impression. This is the story of her first love and self discovery.

"On Berryhill Road" was a nice story, but I couldn't help feel like there was a lack of character development regarding several of the characters. Easy read, good underdog theme.

Tommie Lyn grew up in the Appalachian foothills of north Georgia immersed in firelight whispers. She listened spellbound as older generations spun chilling tales of local events, including stories of the supernatural. And sometimes, they even used the word "murder."

She carries on the tradition of her kinfolk, the storytelling magic guaranteed to rob hours of sleep and make the night come alive. On
