Reviews - What do customers think about The Immortelles (The Creoles Series #2)?
"The Immortelles":Damita (The Creoles Series #2) Jan 18, 2008
This book was exactly what I had expected. It is sincere and encouraging spiritual help. It's like talking to a friend when you don't have one around physically. Also, I love G.Morris's sense of humor. He is very open and nonjudgemental Chistian writer; that is mostly what attracts me in his books. The plot is fasinating, as usual, with his books. You are never bored till the end, and the end is always optimistic.
Good story but confilcting information Jul 23, 2007
I read the book and enjoyed it. However the one thing that bothered me about the book, is that it seemed as if the authors focused only on the plot of this book and not on the information that they put into their first book, in areas where the subject matter overlapped. Both of Chantel's parents were dead and all she had left, come graduation, was a step-mother. The Exiles: Chantel (The Creoles, Book 1) So how was she visiting with her parents at graduation? I know this seems like a small matter, and it doesn't really affect the plot of this story. But if someone is going to write a series I would appreciate it if they took the time to make sure that the books didn't conflict each other.
I loved this book Nov 18, 2005
This is one of my favorite books by the Morris family. I loved the whole story. I think that it was sweet that everyone feel in love at the end.
They are SIBLINGS!!! Oct 29, 2005
one thing that bugged the heck out of me in this book was that while Rissa has agreed to be known as the daughter of the doctor and Jefferson is the adopted son of the doctor, therefore making them brother and sister, Rissa, contiunally throughout the book, refuses to acknowledge this and gets mad everytime Jefferson brings it up. i don't care that she was falling in love with him (which is rather icky when adopted siblings fall in love with in other in any case), he is still her brother if the father ADOPTED HIM and is her BIRTH FATHER. it was very annoying.
i preferred the Cheney Duvall Series over this series. and why does it say this book is by Morris, Gilbert & J. Landon Ferguson? the picture clearly shows it's Gilbert and Lynn Morris.
