I enjoyed the historical setting, and Tracie's research applied to the era.
The dialogue was frustrating: telling things that the people in the plot would already know, just so I would know.
I also struggled with the doctor's lack of confidentiality with his patients. (I know HIPAA wasn't around then, but there still would have been confidentiality with his patients...the hipocratic oath and all that sort of stuff.)
Some of the plot was not believable...would the doctor really bow out gracefully and actually encourage the reunion?
I appreciated the escape into another time, but it came with a lot of frustrations. ( )

This book was really different in a way of a Romance book. You some what learn to keep faith along with hope. Some things really happen once tragically happen to one particular family. Things begin to change though out the book. Doe god start to heal their hearts and wounds? ( )

A quick read (for me). A nice, historical Christian novel about a young couple-Emmalyne and Tavin who are betrothed, but a horrible tragedy strikes and Emmalyne's two younger sisters are killed in a tornado. Emmalyne's father breaks the betrothal, because it is a family tradition for the youngest daughter to sacrifice her own life to take care of her parents in their old age.

Emmalyne and Tavin are devastated. Tavin doesn't understand why Emmalyne won't go against her father (who is a very hard man) and elope with him anyway. He goes away mad, Emmalyne stays with her parents & younger brother and takes care of them all. They are separated for 11.5 years (or so), until Tavin is summoned home by his parents.

Emmalyne discovers the reasons that her father is so harsh & her mother starts to take more of an interest in life. She is mentored by their pastor, and finds that perhaps she has been praying for the wrong reasons. She begins to pray more for her father & asking God to let her learn to love her father and show him that she does indeed love him.

Her father begins to soften and Emmalyne and Tavin's lives begin to change because of it.

I will definitely read again and again. ( )

I think two stars is a generous rating. This book was boring at best and senselessly depressing at worst.

I just did not enjoy this book. I admit, I did not read the first one, because I did not realize this was a series. And After reading the first few chapters, I did skim the next twenty percent of the book.

The only positive thing I have to say is that it was a breath of fresh air to read about a heroine who was obedient, humble and servant, rather than a fierce, ahead-of-her-time pistol. But I felt this character was wasted. We are introduced to a heartbreaking situation, fastforwarded ELEVEN YEARS LATER with no time spent, not even blips, in their lives. This story could have been stronger if we had been taken along on that ride and could have seen firsthand how Emmy grew to despair for her mother, find companionship with her brother and grew to resent her father. But nope, the author obviously feels these are all unimportant when contrasted to her broken engagement; they're briefly brought up later and quickly resolved.

And, despite her admission of such feelings, I didn't see that her actions followed suit, making it unbelievable. For example, many women would be hardened, turned weak or bitter or angry etc, after so many years of pain and suffering and unappreciated sacrifice. The first man to pay her attention (and a possible escape) would have certainly at least proved to be a temptation. Not so with Emmy.

Anyway, the story picks up with us being dropped in eleven years later to see that nothing has changed, but they are packing up and returning home. I think the lack of change was unrealistic. And I was completely bored by the next TWENTY PERCENT of the book being spent on talking about how she spruced up the dump and made it a home. Ugh.

I was surprised by Emmy's friend, Fenella's, storyline. I just couldn't see the point.

I have witnessed people doing 180 degree changes in personality. But this happened SO rapidly and we didn't really get insight into Luthias' feelings or motivations. I was confused by some contradictions where he was concerned, like his questioning Tavin on his feelings the first time. His conversion was not gradual at all.

Things wrapped up too smoothly at the end, which was just not believable for me, especially not where Fenella was concerned. I have siblings, in laws and friends and I can't imagine behaving the way ANY of the characters did if this happened to one of my family or friends.

And I did not get pulled into the subplot of the trouble with the union. I just couldn't get into it.

*I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
