    It's like she just gave up

    At about half way through I can tell you that the story is good and fun and intriguing. But the writing is irritating. Much as I said when I reviewed Sabrina by Lori Wick, the word usage is just awkward and causes a break in concentration and overall is ruining the book. I just do not understand it either, because I have read dozens of her books and never have found this in the before Sabrina and now Jessie. It is just weird, it is the same usage of 'that' in all of the weirdest places. You might have to see it, to understand what I'm talking about but it is just weird. After being completely finished, my overall opinion is that I'm disappointed. The story has so much potential and is really pretty good, but then it just ends completely abruptly. Then most of the loose ends are wrapped up in a whirl wind in the epilogue. The usage of 'that' is just odd through out, but even beyond that, I do not know it just was not the best of Lori Wick that I have read. I am not saying do not read it, because it has tons of wonderful gospel lessons and heart warming plots, there is just a strangeness to the wording and then just ending. It could have been better, but it is still an okay read.

    Great read!

    I really enjoyed this book and finding out more about Jessie and her past. Something that made me smile is that her husband is Seth Redding from 'A Texas Sky' so this book ties a little into 'A Texas Sky'. You find out about Jessie and Seth's history, and their daughters are adorable. They have their struggles like anyone else, but I sensed God's guidance through their struggles. At the end you also get Cassy, Eliot and the kids in there too 'also from A Texas Sky'. I couldn't put this book down!

    Jessie by Lori Wick

    Jessie Wheeler has successfully managed her business and her life without help from anyone for years. When her husband left her eight years ago, she single-handedly took care of her two daughters while running her mercantile. Now her estranged husband, Seth Redding, is back in town and claims to be a different man. Jessie's not about to trust him, but she recognizes that the girls are longing for a father figure and is willing to give Seth a second chance to know his daughters. Not surprisingly, Jessie makes it clear that she is off-limits. When an expected illness confines Seth to Jessie's home, her feelings begin to change, but she's not about to trust the man that left her once before. It will take a miracle to heal Jessie's heart, but is she even willing to accept it?

    Jessie by Lori Wick was enjoyable, but it is far from being my favorite book by Lori Wick. I liked the characters of Jessie and Seth very well; however, there were some characters in the book that just did not seem to make sense - characters such as Meg, who had a baby. She did not really interact much with anyone and what was written about her did not contribute to the plot. The romance between Heather and Nate was cute, but it was a sub-plot that really had nothing to do with the main plot. I am not sure there was even any interaction between those two characters and the main two characters, Jessie and Seth.

    Jessie has been taking care of herself and her two girls for nearly eight years, since the day her husband walked out on her. Seth Redding, Jessie's husband has changed during that time, but will he ever be able to show Jessie that?

    Christian romance¿

    Harvest House Publishing, 2008<BR/>ISBN: 0736920803<BR/>Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com, 10/08<BR/>4 Stars<BR/><BR/> Christian romance¿<BR/> <BR/>This is number three in the Big Sky Dreams series. I like this series and eagerly await book four. Jessie teaches us about our faith and about people that are not sure about theirs. When bad things happen in our lives, God is always there with us and ready to have good come out of it. God does not make the bad things happen, but he is always with us to help us through it. Sometimes we have to look beyond what is happening now and look towards the future.<BR/> <BR/>The setting is Token Creek in1884. Jessie Wheeler is working in her mercantile when a stranger walks in looking for a job. She takes a chance on Seth and discovers he is a good worker he is. Eventually, they fall in love, get married, and have a little girl. <BR/>Theirs was not a happy-ever-after marriage. Problems seemed to multiply and Seth leaves. He is gone for eight years before he comes back. He has a lot of explaining to do. He didn¿t know he had another daughter. He wants to be part of their life. He has changed a lot in the last eight years. He has found faith in God. He wants to share that faith with Jessie.
