Reviews - What do customers think about Case Of The Autumn Rose (Not Available-Out Of Prin?
Just what a mom is looking for in a book for her children May 24, 2006
I bought this book for my son based upon a recommendation on CatholicMom.com. It isn't easy finding good literature with a Christian based foundation so I was delighted when this had adventure, morals, and values. My son thoroughly enjoyed the story and looks forward to reading more of Mr. Acker's books. Cheryl Dickow, author, "Raising Christian Children in a Secular World."
Good for all ages Aug 11, 2003
I got this for my next door neighbor's son (12), but decided to read it myself first. I really, really enjoyed it. In fact I got so "into" it that I failed to get several things done that I was supposed to work on that day. It is well written, full of action, and really keeps you guessing.
Great book with good values! Jul 9, 2003
Like the previous reviewer, I LOVED Harry Potter, and I liked this book as well. It was a quick, entertaining story that kept me guessing until the end. While this book is geared toward young adults, I think adults could enjoy it too.
"Move over J.K. Rowling, you've got competition" Mar 2, 2003
I took that quote from a review on the back of the book, but I have to agree that this book is as engaging and well-written as the Harry Potter books. It has vivid imagery and an excellent moral lesson on the importance of family values and the dangers of loving material possessions. This book also won the gold medallion award from Kregel Publishing, which is a tribute to this newly published author. Mr. Acker has a knack for mystery-writing and his style is refreshingly unpredictable. The book is set in part on a horse farm, and there are some fast-paced suspenseful chase scenes set in Door County, Wisconsin. The brother/sister detective team of Arthur and Kirstin allow the book to be gender neutral. I had a hard time putting this book down, and the last time I felt that way was while reading the Harry Potter series. I give this book an A+. (P.S. I heard that there is a sequel in the works, and that one is just as good.)
