Incredible! And I don't use that term lightly.... Jan 12, 2004
What can I say about this book? It's so awesome...I almost can't describe it. When I started reading it in the beginning, I wasn't too excited. I thought it was going to be another one of those pointless "Christian" romance novels where the girl believes in God but never even thinks about Him until the very end when she's got the guy, who she managed somehow to convert, and then they both sappily thank God. But this was so different. The love story, while still there, melted into the background of Kwelik's extreme faith. I also love the fact that she doesn't do Christian platitudes...like,"Oh yeah, I'm going through all this horrible stuff, but the Lord will take care of it" Don't get me wrong, the Lord does get you through unimaginable things, but in the mean time, it still hurts. You can really feel Kwelik's agony and torment, but she still trusts in God. I also love the part about White Wolf. It really shows just how much bitterness and unforgiveness can completely change who you are inside, until you're someone no one can recognize. This book is fantastic!
Make time in your summer for this book! Jun 13, 2001
This is an incredibly well-written book that is nearly impossible to put down. The author magically transports you through time and makes you truly feel you are a part of that time and place (which is a trick when you live in the desert). I am very glad this is part of a series. I can't wait to read more from this talented author.
You won't want to put this down! May 18, 2001
Wow,this was a great book. I'm eagerly waiting the next in the series. Marlo crafted a fantastic story interweaving history and religion into a powerful prose. I could not put the book down. Her artistry reminds me of Mitchner. I enjoyed this so much I bought another and donated it to the library. ~ Hurry up with the next book!!
Prepare To Step Back In Time May 11, 2001
Schalesky writes with such powerful prose that the reader not only believes the story, we are swept back in time to the early 1700's to experience it. What is the cry for freedom in a land that we today take for granted? What is the cry for freedom that every person feels within their life on a spiritual level? Schalesky weaves these questions into a story of historical accuracy and with characters who live and breath upon the page. As both a historical fiction and contemporary fiction reader, I will definitely return to Schalesky's books again and again. A reminder of our nation's foundation and with insights that touch us today -- a definite must read!
I Was Hooked! Sep 28, 2000
I really enjoyed Cry Freedom. I do not have much time to read but once I started this great book I couldn't put it down. I was instantly drawn to the characters and the excitement of the story. I appreciate the authors ability to bring the past to life with such historical accuracy. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK IN THE SERIES!
