Reviews - What do customers think about The Pursuit (The English Garden Series #4)?
Awesome Series Sep 23, 2008
When does number 5 come out. This was awesome. You read a romance novel because you like fantasy romance and happy endings. What an awesome talent you have Lori. I have thoroughly enjoyed all 4 of this series and would love to have it continue. Thanks for the read.
Another winner Jan 10, 2006
I loved this Lori Wick book, the entire English series is one I enjoyed, and have reread a couple times already, this book however touched on a mothers heart, and how far she would go to keep her children safe. It touched on trust and letting people close to us. And ultimately trusting the Lord to provide what we most need and desire. This was defintely a worthwhile read.
Unexpected story! Nov 17, 2005
I am a big fan of stories from this era, and I really enjoyed all four books in this series. This one in particular had a really interesting plot that I would not have expected. I live in reality... I don't need a story to further dwell on that. I enjoy that Lori's books are so ideal, so perfect. I don't mind that the characters aren't "believeable" as some have criticized. That's exactly why I read them! It's fun to escape. And yet in the story there are neat twists and turns. They aren't completey predictable. I recommend this book highly. And I enjoy that the characters you meet as the series goes along are main characters in later books. That is a very neat aspect. By the time you read the later books, you've developed a "caring" for the characters and can't wait to see what happens in their lives. I do recommend reading the books in order. I skipped book 2 because I didn't own it and read it last. I wish I hadn't. It isn't necessary, but I think you miss out when those characters pop up in the later books.
Lori Wick definetely fails to please with this one Nov 21, 2004
Although I love Lori Wick's earlier works, her latest english series was disapointment after dissapointment with each new book. The beginning starts off with some hope to redeem the series, but by the middle it becomes all to predictable and juet like her other works. If you want a good Lori Wick read Pretense or Princess; however, she obviously proves with this one that she is past her prime and out of clever ideas.
A Different Type May 10, 2004
The Pursuit is quite an exceptional book for the Christian fiction genre. It deals with the issue of a woman, dressing as a man, who is on the run from someone or something. The book takes the normal Wick layout of the two main characters' meeting and falling in love. This book is an extremely easy read, it flows incredibly well so that you do not know you have been reading the book for hours. While it is an easy and quick read, it also does not stray from the normal romance novel plot line. It is a very predictable book. The characters again are normal for a romance novel. One of them always has either a big secret of is incredibly rich, well in this book , you have both. this book lacks no big shock or action in this book, and everything stays with the general plot line. I would recommend this book if and only if you like the romance plot line.
Amateurish and awkward Apr 21, 2004
This is the first and last Lori Wick book for me. The Characters were shallow, simple puppets moving through a prescribed series of very boring events. I found myself skimming through great portions of the chapters involving characters I can only assume were part of other books in her series, but which I found extraneous and irritating here. There also seemed to be a serious lack of real research for a historical piece, with anachronisms abounding. I found the protagonists simplistic, and their actions overwrought for the situation. The twin's grandmother,(the villain here) was very one-note, with no attempt on the author's part to make her a real person. Instead she appears as almost an afterthought used to explain the ridiculously melodramatic and circuitous actions of the boys mother. Not worth the paper it's printed on, or the time I wasted forcing my way though it.
