Should Not Be Listed Under "Christian Fiction Amish"

Linda Castillo is an excellent writer - her plot and characters are excellent. This book should not be listed un "Christian Fiction Amish"

Linda Castillo is an excellent writer - her plot and characters are excellent. This book should not be listed un "Christian Fiction Amish"

Having an Amish theme does not make the book Christian. Ms Castillo's used of curse and swear words through out the book, and her rather vivid description of sexual scenes - do not read like any truly Christian literature I've ever read.

    Wish I could return this for a refund

    Read the first page and decided not to read it. Too violent. There's enough violence in the world, I don't need to read it in a novel. Lesson learned: always download a sample first!

    VERY DISAPPOINTED

    This book is written in the first person. I wish the reviews would state when this is the case.. I dont enjoy books in the first person. I was very disappointed with this. I was able to make it to page 6 then had to put it down

    Sworn to Silence

    As a Mom who is just starting to have time to read again, I was looking for a mystery that could really capture my attention. I unfortunately, could not get past the violent beginning and the "f" words at the beginning of the book. I tried to return it and B&N would not take it back w/o my receipt. Pretty sad since I am sure they can look it up and see that I am a good customer of theirs. I was disappointed.
