My favorite book, EVER!!

Follow the story of Mary Rose -- from when she was found abandoned by her four adopted brothers, to her all grown up. This story has it ALL and I can not recommend it highly enough to those like me who absolutely ADORE western romance. 200 stars, 200 A+'s -- this is the...

There were lots of laughs in this book as well as lots of moments that nearly made me cry. But the story starts wandering about halfway through, especially when they get to England, and I found myself skimming a bit. I love Julie Garwood's style. She always has a great blend of humor and poignancy. This book had both, and I loved all the characters 'except for Eleanor and the bunch in England', but it didn't keep my interest throughout. When the final chapters came and there was yet another new plotline, I just sighed. But then the ending felt rushed, with several things left out. Why didn't we get to experience Harrison's joy at Mary Rose's good news? Why didn't we see the reunion with Mama Rose? A lot to love, but I have to give it only three.

    Got better towards the end

    In the beginning, I really didn't like it much. The main female character was just plain annoying. I really had to push myself to continue reading. The only reason I did is because it is one of my best friend's favorite books & I promised her I'd read it. Many things that were said & done were contradictory. I will have to say that it did get better about 1/2 to 2/3 into the book. This was a really long read for me because I disliked the beginning so much. The end of the book went by much quicker. If I could break it down, I'd give the first half of the book 1 star, and the second half 3 1/2 stars
