Reviews - What do customers think about The Visitor (English Garden, Book 3)?

Try Something Else  Jan 4, 2009
This novel was, unfortunately, the first and last book I read of the English Garden Series. I do not discourage against any of the other books, as I have not read them, nor do I discourage a reader from trying out Lori Wick. I am an avid reader of Christian fiction (perhaps TOO much!) and my rating is based off of similar books of Christian historical fiction.

There were several things that encouraged me to give this novel a 1-star rating. First, there were a confusing abundance of secondary characters. One may argue that by reading the first two books, keeping track of the extra (often seemingly insignificant secondary characters) would have been easier. Of course, that is true, but Wick also never allowed a me to even get a glimpse of who these other people were. The book is noted by many reviewers as a "stand-alone" novel. It didn't feel like it, I felt like an outsider constantly looking in.

The plot became fairly plodding and boring with little action beyond the self-conscience struggles of the protagonist, Cassie. It's Cassie, I believe, that really failed this entire book for me. Wick fell into a trap that some authors (too often, Christian fiction authors) fall into - that being that their female characters are beautiful, pious, gentle and all-around perfect. Wick, though, gives Cassie one "fatal" flaw: she has red hair. Unfortunately, that is the main problem holding Cassie and Tate apart. Her hair.

The novel is sweet, perhaps, and the idea of the plot (a young woman reading to a blind man and falling in love) is nice. But when one of the primary conflicts of the book arise from the color of Cassie's hair... well, I can admit that it doesn't make for the most thrilling or even self-reflecting read. I felt myself distanced from Cassie - how can any human being only have one tiny, tiny flaw? As a reader, you need to identify with the main characters to create true empathy for them - in this case, I saw a porcelain doll with no flaws who bemoans the fact that they don't like the color of their eyes or their feet are too small.

If you want to read Lori Wick, she does have some excellent novels - most published earlier in her career such as The Donovans or A Yellow Rose Trilogy. Also, I have a great love of Deanne Gist and Lori Copeland.
The Visitor  Sep 3, 2008
Lori Wick is one of my favorite Christian writers. Her books are written with careful attention to detail and with great sensitivity and depth.
A Flawless Transaction  Jul 2, 2008
My mother had all the books in this series except for number 3. Not wanting to skip over it, I suggested we look on this Although the shipping cost more than the book, it arrived in one week in like-new condition. I wholeheartedly recommend this site!
What happened to Lori Wick  Oct 9, 2006
I used to be such a huge Lori Wick fan but it seems like all her newer books, basicly anything after the Texas Rose Trilogy have just been trite books with no depth. Ok I will admit that the frist time that I read the Vistor I really like it. I thought that it was a fun quick read. But I just reread it and I just wanted to throw the book across the room everytime Cassie went off on her looks or lack there of in her opinion. At 24 years of age as Cassie is in the book you should realize that there is more to life then looks. And I just can't see that any guy would put up with girl so insecure about her looks as Cassie is and to pull what Cassie does in the book. But I guess in the world of Lori Wick if you are red head with freckles you have to get a guy to fall in love with you before he sees you to have any chance at happiness.
Okay  Jan 31, 2006
This installation is weaker than the previous two in the series (The Proposal and The Rescue). It's a quick read and quickly forgotten. The premise is interesting, the main character reading to a blind man, but I found Cassandra's "modesty" about her looks annoyingly superficial and self-centred. The dialogue sounds odd and too modern and the story cuts back and forth way too much between the different characters to find out what they are doing and thinking at that precise moment. (Usually they are talking about the other characters or involved in something totally inconsequential to the plot). This book reminds me of white bread. Filling, light and maybe even temporarily satisfying with very little nutritional content. This series is okay, but I would recommend The Brides of Culdee Creek by Kathleen Morgan over the English Garden series.
