This 470 page book was filled with emotion and God's lessons. Very sweet, clean Christian book that paints beautiful pictures in your mind. The depth of character the author has artfully woven for everyone makes you feel like you personally know them by the end of the book. While this book was free, the others in this series are over my budget at this time even though I would love to learn more about the characters from this book in addition to the new residents of Gresham.

This book started out to be interesting, if not predictable. The widow who knew nothing about the gambling debts her late husband incurred, etc.. The plot never fully developed and it did not hold my attention. Certain important characters are only briefly mentioned later in the story and there is not full closure. I found myself forcing my way through the pages just to finish it. I would not recommend purchasing.

    Not true to the era

    I hate to come down hard on a clean, faith-based story, but this one is trite, predictable and completely fails to capture the culture, speech and character of England c. 1870. Julia is a 21st century heroine in a bustle. Oh, but she does have hair like burnished copper! Two stars for the hair and the emerald green eyes.

    Too preachy

    A good story, but spoiled by the constant preaching about faith and prayer. Yes,I'm sure that faith can give us strenghth,ultimately, the strenghth has tocome from within. Julia's success came mostly from hard work and belief in her ability to succeed. All the prayer in the world won 't do a ything if a person doesn't work to succeed. The book had agood story to tell, but sometimes it sounded more like a sermon than a novel.

    Just Okay

    This book started out great but by the middle of it I felt it began to lag. I kept thinking it would pick back up however that just did not hpappen. I began skimming through just to get to the end. I would not recommend this book. It became boring and did not hold my attention.

    Cute story

    I rated this book two stars only because it didn't keep me up at night. It is a cute story though and I may try another book by this author. Overall the story was thought out just not a favorite that I'd go back and read again. Also I did have the feeling there were loose strings and I'd have to read another book. I'm not into series unless they are amazing reads.
