VERY WELL DONE!! Aug 13, 2007
I read this book in its entirety and all three stories were worthwhile.
They were very well written and I was immediately swept into a different era. The themes and characters were well developed and I was sad when I had finished... I wish the stories would continue. All THREE.
While I agree that the character of the third story acted juvenile, she does learn her lesson and feels guilt throughout the tale. (One might argue that to judge a book without reading it is also juvenile.) Everyone makes mistakes, nobody is sinless, guilt will eat at you until you seek forgiveness and that is the point of the story.
This book was full of Christian themes and wonderful stories of romance. I would also recommend the book Castles, by Tracie Peterson.
Two out of the three are keepers Mar 20, 2007
The first two stories were well written and enjoyable, both of these stories illustrated the power of God to transform and make positive changes in a persons life. It was nice to read about people with faith and a romance story with out explicit sexual activity was good also. this is not just appropriate for young people, but older adults will enjoy it too.
However, given the overall thesis of the book I was disappointed by the premise of the last story. After reading the introduction and description, I refused to read the last story. After reading the first two stories I could not subject myself to such total idiocy.
If the stories are to show us that God will reward our efforts if we have faith and believe in His power in our lives, I do not understand why He would reward a liar and deceiver by gifting her with a Duke. Why should she end up out ranking the vicar's daughter in the first story?
To deceive a person and lie to them and maintain that you love them is so juvenile. Why should he trust her to be honest with her and act in his best interests if she would lie to him? If the third story was a single book, I would not have purchased it. The first two stories were worth reading. Maybe someone will review the third story and not have a problem with it. I bought this book from a discount store and it was half price. I would not have bought it at full price because of the third story.
