Reviews - What do customers think about The Tender Vine (Diamond of the Rockies #3)?
I didn't like it. Aug 6, 2005
I got so tired and sad while reading that book because it has too much suffering and disgrace.... I loved the characters, so I would like them to have a better end.
This series is amazing!! Apr 12, 2005
I had never read any of the author's books before and was overjoyed at how GOOD they are. This series was unbelievable - make sure you have all three books when you start reading because as soon as you finish one, you have to read the next one - they are so good. I have never seen a male character portrayed so well as she did with Quillan - She makes you so relate with the characters and draws you into their lives in such a wonderful way. These books are so good and through it all she weaves God's Word and message into it in such a wonderful way - GREAT BOOKS!!!
The series ends but the characters live on...... Feb 28, 2005
Quillan has agreed to take Carina back to her beloved Sonoma and family. Their journey is nothing compared to what awaits them when they finally do arrive.... Here is your typical Italian family who demands that protocol be followed, a very handsome (and faithless) ex-lover for whom we have been waiting 3 whole books to find out about, and then there is Papa. All of them will surprise and alternately anger and please the reader.
This last book of the series is probably my favorite. The real, deep and eternal love between Carina and Quillan shows so clearly I just wanted to SHAKE the whole family for their negativity, but, in the process I learned to respect and love Quillan and Carina all the more. Total love is being willing to let go if necessary, however painful.
Filled with lots of action and suspense, obviously, the author could not allow this to be a "happily ever after" without a firey trial of pain, raw emotions and near death for some of the main characters.....without revealing anything, I will just say, buy all three books at one time and you will never have to wait for the sequel..
A very excellent historical, Christian fiction love story and one that older teens should definitely read. Thank you Kristen!
WOW! THIS ONE IS A WINNER! Feb 4, 2004
Whoah! I haven't read very many books where you felt like you knew the characters...in this one, I wanted to cry for Carina and Quillan! Anyway, this book takes place during the time that Carina and Quillan have finally admitted their love for eachother(heart flutter!). When they decide to visit Carina's family in Sonoma, California, the DiGratia family is in for a surprise that will turn them all against the couple. With her first love, Flavio, trying to get rid of Quillan and forcefully get Carina back, the husband and wife go through a lot of hard times. Questions flash through your mind - does anyone ever come to their senses? Can't they just accept Quillan? Will he and Carina ever be together again? My heart ached, and rejoiced while I read this book. Though, I must say, the author did a splendid job at making one get extremely involved with the lives of the characters. For example, I just wanted to hate Flavio with ever fiber of my being, yet Carina and Quillan showed me how to forgive him. I loved how the characters influenced how I felt about what was going on in this book. Anyway, before I tell you to much, READ!
