Editorial Reviews

Janice Thompson
Louise M. Gouge’s Hannah Rose presents a beautifully woven tapestry of haunting memories, new beginnings, and freedom from bondage, both internal and external. Set against the backdrop of 19th Century Boston, this thoughtful and intelligent story is a must-read for lovers of history and fiction alike.
-Janice Thompson, author, Picture Perfect (Weddings by Design Book #1), February 2013
Kim Vogel Sawyer
Hannah Rose has it all--romance, drama, political issues (slavery), spiritual internal conflict, and a mother's desire to protect her child...sometimes from himself. Gouge does a wonderful job of creating a time and place and transporting the reader to that setting. I LIVED the story with the characters. Great read!

    Great Read!

    If you've ever wondered what happened to some of the minor characters in historical literature, then Hannah Rose by Louise Gouge (and also the first book of this series, Ahab's Bride)is a book for you. Taking up the story after the death of Capt. Ahab of Moby Dick fame, the author has written the continuing story of Ahab's widow and her growth, both emotionally and spiritually. Characters and dialogue are all true to the 19th century setting. This book is a very enjoyable read that will transport you back to the days of whaling and slavery and take you inside the heroine's head as she makes choices that will affect the rest of her life.

    Hannah Rose

    Although my first love is contemporary fiction, it took me all of two pages to become captivated with Hannah Rose as she struggles to protect her son from a haunting past, reluctantly becomes involves with the Abolitionists to help escaped slaves, and chooses between two intriguing men who couldn't be more different. And the novel was so well crafted. Louise Gouge is a real pro. Warning: Once you pick Hannah Rose up, you won't want to put it down.

    An engaging novel

    Louise Gouge has a special gift for romance writing in the historical genre. I really enjoy her unique literary style. She engaged my mind in the life of Hannah Rose and propelled me into the culture of pre-civil war Boston with all of its rules and restrictions guiding expressions of love. Hannah became my friend. I prayed for her to make the right choices and held my breath several times along the way. And, yes, I even shed a tear or two, which is unusual for me. Needless to say, I will HAVE to read the sequel. Waiting for it to come out in print is going to make me nuts. :)

    Affecting Read

    Hannah Rose continues the story of Ahab¿s Bride, as widowed Hannah must make a new life with her son after her husband¿s death, while concealing their relationship to him. When she moves to Boston to visit friends before leaving for a long-awaited trip to Europe, Hannah is torn between two very different men whose attentions force her against her will to confront her convictions about slavery and her relationship with God. This subtle, delicately drawn story beckons the reader into the vivid world of mid nineteenth-century Boston at a time when the tide of opposition to slavery was swelling. In Hannah, Gouge has created a truly memorable, flesh-and-blood character, and the suspenseful romance kept me turning the pages to see which man she would choose. I couldn¿t help identifying with Hannah¿s love for her son and her desire to keep him safe, her affection and loyalty for her friends, and at the same time her deep hunger to finally set out on the adventure her heart had craved for so long. Gouge affectingly portrays the maturing of Hannah¿s spiritual nature through a confrontation with profound issues that still resonate today. The ending was satisfying but at the same time left me eager to learn in what direction Gouge will take Hannah and her friends in the next book of the series. An excellent read!

    Hannah Rose

    Louise M Gouge has written a wonderful follow-up to Ahab¿s Bride, and yet this book can stand on its on. Not wanting to raise her son with the legacy of Captain Ahab, her late husband, Hannah decides to tour Europe. First, she stops to see friends in Boston. While there, she reunites with Captain Lazarus, a man that worked for her father and knew her husband. She also meets Captain Longwood. She must choose between two men that have awakened something in her that she thought died with her husband. Before she can select the man for her, she must do some soul searching and discover who she is. Along the way, she encounters slavery and all the injustices that come with it. You won¿t be disappointed by adding this book to your collection. It is going straight to my keeper shelf.

    Hannah Rose

    Hannah Rose by Louise M. Gouge blends Christian beliefs with wonderfully flawed characters. The thing I like best about this series is that Gouge incorporates Christianity without peachiness; faith is simply a part of daily life. Because of this her work rings like a modern day Alcott.

    Hannah Rose

    An exciting page turner, HANNAH ROSE is a realistic story portraying the emotional struggles and issues during the pre-Civil War. Hannah Rose's faith is challenged and awakened when she sees the plight of runaway slaves. Louise Gouge brings her characters to life and maintains an exciting read. I highly recommend this book for a historical taste of the times.

    An amazing talent writes a fascinating story

    Hannah is the widow of the infamous captain Ahab who died in his quest for revenge chasing Moby Dick. Hannah has moved from her home in Nantucket to escape the hatred of all the families who lost loved ones when Ahab¿s ship went down. Living with her son under a false name, Hannah finds herself pulled in two directions by the growing anti-slavery movement. Two men show interest in the lovely young widow. One a southern gentleman, the other a seaman who smuggles slaves out of the south. Hannah is attracted to both men. The lies about her identity threaten her. Her son shows signs of having his father¿s strong will and, hungry for a male influence, may be heading for trouble. Louise M. Gouge has written a book that surprised me. I didn¿t know what to expect going into it, but I found myself captivated. Gouge made the stakes so high in Hannah Rose that I couldn¿t tear myself away until I¿d finished it. Strong willed, but vulnerable Hannah, the slave owner who speaks of his slaves as if they were beloved family, and the abolitionist who endangers Hannah for his cause, make a perfect love triangle. I enjoyed every minute of Hannah Rose and highly recommend it.

    Young Widow's Convictions Affect Choices

    19th Century Boston provides a fascinating background for Louise Gouge¿s Hannah Rose. Romance is interwoven with history to create an uplifting story about a spunky young widow trying to begin a new life with her son. Before she can even begin to consider travel or remarriage, she must decide where she stands on critical issues.
