I liked this book because the stage was set from the beginning. It held my attention throughout the entire book. I could identify with a girl going somewhere totally out of her element and learning to pick up the culture. I thought the way the main character learned to find out who how to survive and keep the principles she based her life on was refreshing.

I liked that this book kept me interested and that I could recommend it as well in content to my teenage nieces for a good wholesome read with the characters actually having character!

Eh...decent as far as Christian fiction standards go...

Not impressed. I liked the way the author held off reconciliation untill the end (nice suspence in that), but communication between the lovers is horrid throughout the entire book. I'm only sixteen, but l've read literally hundreds of Christian fictions and Amish fictio...
Not impressed. I liked the way the author held off reconciliation untill the end (nice suspence in that), but communication between the lovers is horrid throughout the entire book. I'm only sixteen, but l've read literally hundreds of Christian fictions and Amish fictions, so l know what l'm talking about. The way Crystal and her romacer (not going to spoil and give the name) hardly ever treat eachother friendly and sweet, except when kissing or tragic cirrcumstances bring them together in woe. "Good grief!", I kept saying to myself. I don't want to think ahead to my courting years and think of arguing constantly with the man l love! One other serious flaw is that the "Christian" part of this "Christian fiction" title was clearly an after-thought. Besides occasionally referencing God's greatness or praying, salvation comes in only in the last few chapters and is still kind of vague and round-a-boutish. Anyways, l hope this has helped y'all in choosing a book. If you really want this one, check it out from the library. It isn't worth it.

    Can a Colorado cowboy be tamed by a Georgia peach?

    Miss Brendans style of writing transported me to Colorado, to where I felt as if I was at Aspengold. The characters seemed so real that I feel as if I made new friends that I can't wait to visit again. Different events in the book either made me cry, smile, or drop my jaw and exclaim, "What?!" I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance novel with adventure mixed in with it.

    Clean story with strong characters:)

    I enjoyed the story, the setting, the characters. It was a relief to read a book that had characters who developed a relationship without hopping into bed with each other. I would have preferred a little less preachiness, but overall it's an enjoyable read.

    Couldn't put it down

    This is a great book. It has a really intriguing story line. It has it's sad parts, it's filled with action, and it has a nice romantic twist.

    Not bad

    Easy read. Interesting story. Accurate on locations in Colorado. Only thing is, there are no tornadoes in the mountains of Colorado, so that part was hokey.
