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 30, 2006
I would really give this book 2.5 stars. It's 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.
Just plain sweet Jan 10, 2006
I loved this book! I loved the characters, they were so appealing on a personal level, and the love interests quite dedicated and refreshing. Points out how God uses times in our lives to quiet our hearts and show us whats most important. Because of his blindness he was open to a love he might have missed had he "seen" it rather than felt it. The second sister finds her love is only realized when the man leaves for Africa and it takes an ocean and a letter to point out what was there all along.
Excellent book Nov 17, 2005
I am a big fan of stories from this era, and I really enjoyed all four books in this series. 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. 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.
great book May 4, 2004
I really enjoyed this book its a great story for anyone . It is also a beautiful love story how Cassandra falls in love with a man who is blind, and they give each other more faith hope and love. I'd recommend it to anyone and I think its the best in the English Garden series. Lori Wick always writes such great stories.
