Well Done Mrs. Jio

Sarah Jio's writing is so wonderful, the bond you feel with her characters and the great stories behind them, "Blackberry Winter" is no exception. Such a great story of loss, love, overcoming the unthinkable and searching for truth.

I felt such compassion for both...

I felt such compassion for both Charles and Vera and wish that things would have been different for them. The devastation that each endured was heart wrenching.

Some parts of the novel were a little predictable but I still loved the mystery. This is a very fast read. You will not want to put it down until the last page is turned and then you will want to begin it again.

    A BIG FARCE

    Got the sample and did expect to buy this book...but the sample contained no book pages to read. Only had reviews and forward of book. How can you even begin to call what this contains a "sample" of the book??? Really unable to rate but had to hit a star in order to submit.

    Great sample...not!

    Great sample if you only want to read the reviews and title page. Come on B & N give readers a little credit. If its good we will buy it ,but 11 pages of reviews telling me how great it is followed by a title page is pathetic.

    Another worthless "sample"

    Sorry b&n, but your chances of my buying this book without the possibility of getting hooked on the first few pages are very slim!

    Would give this zero stars if I could

    Once again the sample of the book contains no part of the actual book. You editors really think we want to read reviews and prefaces rather than part of the book? Idiots!

    Do Nook editors actually read.

    Oh come on. The sample has not any of the book text. Yes that is how I choose a book.

    Short samples are useless

    I have other nook samples that like this one are too short
    All you get are title pages, contents etc, but nothing to judge the book on!

    I have heard that amazon uses a better formula for determining how many pages are in the sample, with generally longer samples
