Reviews - What do customers think about The Wild Rose of Lancaster (The Wild Rose Series, Book 1)?
Overall, nice reading Aug 20, 2008
A wholesome, interesting story. I think it could have used a lot of pruning and it definitely needed a proofreader, with all the errors in punctuation and grammar.
A Super Read Oct 30, 2007
What a wonderful book this is. Mrs. Ellinger has created characters that immediately seem like old friends, and your heart is quickly drawn into the ebb and flow of their lives. The story is positive and uplifting, and leaves you wanting more (thankfully, there is a sequel in "The Wild Rose of Promise"). I couldn't put the book down.
Wonderful Christian historical fiction May 12, 2007
I loved this book! When you are reading it, you feel as though you are really there. One can empathize with Elizabeth's trials and rejoice with her in her victories!! I am definitely looking forward to the sequel!
Wonderful period piece Jun 12, 2006
As a Lancaster native who now lives in KY, I thoroughly enjoyed this period piece written about life in Lancaster 150 years ago. The characters were so believable and the setting was described so clearly that I was able to visualize the entire story as it took place in what is now the historic district of Lancaster. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel!!!
The Wild Rose of Lancaster Jun 10, 2006
For anyone of any faith, this is a must read. It is a wonderfully, riveting book that can't be put down once it is started. I can hardly wait for the sequel!
Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your faith and ancestry with all of us!
