Much better than the first edition... Dec 15, 2004
For those of you who have read the first edition of "Like A River Glorious" I would like to let you know of this book.... Lawana rewrote her first edition and this version is much better than the one before. So if you didn't enjoy the first edition you might want to try this new edition. I connected much better with the characters especially with Corrine Hammond. Rachel Jones is a lovely young maid caught in a desperation situation. She is an unwilling partner in an evil intrigue of extortion and blackmail with her employers Gerald Moore and Corrine Hammond. Though she would like very much to leave this household, the fear of being arrested along with her employers held her captive. Then Rachel meets the latest victim Lord Adam Burke who has secluded himself after his war injuries and his fiancee's rejection. Will Rachel escape the vile plot and from Gerald Moore's unsavoury lust? Or will she sacrifice her life in order to save Adam? I am very pleased that Lawana has re-written the book and I'm so looking forward to her new contemporary murder-mystery "A Table by the Window" which will be released next April. I can hardly wait! Please keep up the good work Lawana!
Great book! Jul 22, 2001
A great book. One of Lawana Blackwell's best. It's a very interesting and good love story. I highly recommend it.
not her best work but still a fun read Nov 2, 2000
As far as I know this is Lawana Blackwell's first novel. She does a pretty good job. This first book tends to lean towards the stereotypical romance novel, though. The characters follow the usual pattern for romance novels. The character development is low. But luckily, Lawana Blackwell gets better with each novel she writes. I particularly like her Gresham Series. Good work, Lawana.
It's a great book that talks about God's forgiveness!!!!!!!! Sep 4, 1999
Rachel is a wonderful charactor. She doesn't like what she's doing and she was told that if she doesn't do what Gerald or Corrine say they would put her in jail. Gerald and Corrine were con artists who prey among the rich people and by Corrine's lies they extort money from rich people. Then they met Adam with scars from his days as a British soldier. Rachel and Adam fall in love and there is a great ending. You have to read this one
This is a great book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aug 30, 1999
Rachel, Corrine, and Adam are great charctors! I like Rachel because she was loyal to her friends. I like Adam because he has a stong faith in God. I like Corrine because she realizes her mistakes and accepted God in her life. Way to go Lawana
