Very Sweet Story

Glad it was free!

This was supposed to take place in 1869 and the author used language spoken today--terms like "Lighten up" and "Stop bugging me". Also, the boys had a soccer ball. The term "soccer" was created in the 1880s in England. She used the word "motel" which is a hotel designed...
This was supposed to take place in 1869 and the author used language spoken today--terms like "Lighten up" and "Stop bugging me". Also, the boys had a soccer ball. The term "soccer" was created in the 1880s in England. She used the word "motel" which is a hotel designed for motorists, usually offering parking. There were no motorists or motels in 1869 Nebraska. If the author didn't do her research, there should have been someone proofreading the story. After reading this book, I have decided I should become an author. I'm certain I could a better job.

    Could've been better

    Lots of potential, but it fell flat.

    Same probs as the first book....

    Gave this author another chance but found the same issues. Tone often doesnt match....like the author was in a hurry to finish and just plugged whatever in.....

    Not so great

    Only an ok read. I agree with other reviews that some of the writing doesn't reflect the time period.

    Ugh.

    If this were a novella for a university class assignment I'd give it a C. Definitely feels amateurish.

    An OK read

    I thought this book started out good, but then went downhill from there. It was an ok read. I kept thinking something exciting would happen, but then there was nothing there. If you do read this book, it's a fairly easy and quick read.

    more from this reviewer

    short

    short and simple with not much explaining going on. not many details and only 100 pages but it was free and if you need something to keep you busy for an hour them go for it.

    Amateur effort

    OK, but could editing. Also, the story is set in 1869, but on page 21, a character is going to get settled in a motel. There were hotels and inns back then, not motels. Kinda ruins the believability of the story, but I'll press on.

    Okay book. A little too preachy for me. Lots of God and scripture references mixed in, so kind of felt like I was in church. Predicatable story, but easy to read.
