This novel had to be a great deal of work with a huge amount of research. There is so much within the pages that reflect upon the time period. It holds fascinating facts and a solid story overall.
I think any reader who enjoys a sweet romance with a bit of tension, action, suspense and the ambiance of a Maine winter tale will like "Falling Like Snowflakes."
The book is geared toward Christian women who like historical fiction and contemporary romance with a little mystery thrown in.
"Bathsheba" is a fascinating retelling of a biblical story which shows that God’s mercy is greater than the gravest of sins.
"season of Salt & Honey" would appeal to those who like emotional fiction with a dash of romance. But, really, the focus is on relationships. I would recommend it.
Overall, I was disappointed in the read.
"Trial Run" asks a lot of speculative questions and does an excellent job of following those questions down the proverbial rabbit hole.
All in all, this was a pleasant book to read. It was not as gripping from a mystery or suspense standpoint as I had hoped. Regardless, the characters and the writing style made it enjoyable.
Beth Vogt's books carry me away to another place, with characters that climb into my heart right away and become like family.

This book filled a need I didn't know I had for a good, old-fashioned western adventure.
The aspect of generations on this one piece of land touches something in me and makes the story all the more relatable.
I love it when a book takes a slightly different tack and changes things up from what might be the typical genre formulation.
Chapman just has a way of writing a mystery that keeps me guessing all the way to the end.
Martin’s multi-dimensional characterization is nothing less than brilliant. All the personalities within the storyline are multifaceted and are portrayed with a depth that is rarely communicated in any genre.
Witemeyer never lets me down with her familiarity of the time period she sets her characters in, a flowing storyline with a solid theme and very human characters with self-image problems, fears and flickers of hope ignited by f...
I quickly fell in love with the characters and really enjoyed following them through this difficult time period.
The book is hysterically funny and touching at once, perhaps the best one in the series yet.
I love the characters and the stories. What can be funnier than a pair of Amish senior citizens matchmaking for their grandchildren?
To sum up the story in one word: beautiful. This is about a family, mainly the father and daughter, who have issues with letting people be too close to them.
