    An unforgettable story of real life and love

    I found this story truly moving. The ordinary characters, struggling with daily life, have more to say about love and marriage than in any book I've ever read. This book is great for those who are bored with their marriage or who have begun taking their spouss for granted. Tom and Ginny are two characters that will stay with me. I enjoyed this even more than Gap Creek. Thanks Robert Morgan!

    A true masterpiece...

    I have just finished reading this book, and the lump in my throat hasn't left. I lament Ginny and Tom's inability to relate more to each other, most especially what their truest pleasures were. Although the story was set at the turn of the century, married men and women still quarrel about the same things as Ginny and Tom did. The language of the story simply kept me in awe, and the little, simple things of farm life made me long to be part of that period in time. Like the other reviewer before me, I, too, would like to go back to the world of Ginny Peace, and fight her battles with her, now that Tom Powell is gone. My true appreciation to Mr. Morgan, for having written this masterpiece.

    I went to visit Tom and Ginny but wanted to stay!

    I love the mountains and the area where Ginny and Tom and Pa and the children live. They will continue to live in my heart. I hated to leave, didn't want the book to end. Perhaps Mr. Morgan will one day continue Ginny's story. I would love to return to 'The Truest Pleasure'. Thank you Mr. Morgan. It was indeed my pleasure to read this treasure.

    Close to Home

    This book is great! It is one of those novels that you don't want to put down because you...just have to see what happens next! Although the book's setting is in the mountains of North Carolina during the early 1900's. The situations dealing with marriage, religon, and life in general will hit 'close to home' for anyone who reads it.

    I had to skim the last 70 pages or so to put an end to the never

    I had to skim the last 70 pages or so to put an end to the never ending description of land, chores, and "feelings".  Not enough dialogue and the characters were unlikeable.  Was there nothing in their lives that brought any happiness?  Gloomy and jumped from one tragedy and discontentment to another.  Gap Creek is one of my favorites, but this felt like a very dreaded book report assignment.  I know I am the only reader so far who dislikes it.  Maybe I just disliked Ginny so much right off the bat that I was too focused on her selfishness to enjoy what others saw in the story.
