Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
There have always been fearful health issues facing each generation—these days one of the ones that is causing incredible distress is Alzheimers or as the young girl in this story call it "the "forgetting" disease." Her grandmother is a gospel singer and the story relates a big event in church when grandmother is going to sing to celebrate Black History Month. The church is full, grandma looks beautiful, but when she gets up to sing, her mind is cloudy and she does not remember what she is supposed to do. Her granddaughter gets up and starts the song and then grandma remembers it all and has her audience enthralled. For young readers there is a bit of an explanation of the disease at a level that would make sense to them. It is hard to accept that an adult like this talented grandmother could ever suffer from such a disease. Its cause is not known nor is there any cure, so the only thing family and friends can do is encourage activities and provide the proper care and compassion. The book's text looks like it is hand printed and the illustrations appear to be done in colored pencil. They are attractive, but not sophisticated. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot

Blue Ribbon Rating: 4 COURTING CONSTANCE is a wonderful tale of learning what it truly means to love someone, even if it requires letting them go. Through humorous and entertaining debacles, Cartwright takes her readers on a fun but instructive tale about the many demands true love places upon individuals. The reader feels Constance's longing for Sir Geoffrey and her frustration when her actions only seem to result in pushing him further away. COURTING CONSTANCE is a calming, amusing read that p

This inspirational novel shows that true love can conquer all and that people can change their thought processes and, in turn, their lives. A perfect blend of humor, romance and a little conspiracy make this a charming story, indeed. --Fresh Fiction Review by Viki Ferrell

    Fun and entertaining

    For a book not labeled as a Christian romance, this regency novel was pretty sweet and even Christian sounding. The heroine reflects on the Bible and even has a change of heart that strengthens her faith. I wasn't expecting that. And for a romance it was more funny than romancy because of some of the crazy things that Constance did. While this book could be read as a stand alone, I got the impression their was a previous story when I was about halfway through this book. That didn't hurt the story at all. I just thought I'd mention it.

    As far as entertainment value goes, I read this book quickly. There were a few places where the spiritual journey seemed to pop out of nowhere, like the inciting incident that should take place prior to the reaction was delayed or missing. But it was a minor issue. Overall I found this story delightful and amusing. The antics made the story cute. I particularly loved the mix up at the end and Constance's scheme involving a gun. I won't say what it was (or it would spoil the fun for the reader) but I will say it was hilarious! In fact, that was probably my favorite part of the book. I also enjoyed all of the crazy bantering and small talk that people did when socializing in those days. If you like a clean romance with witty banter and funny incidents, you will enjoy this regency.
