    Excellent read

    By Jane Thompson (Georgetown, Texas USA) -
    This review is from: Rebekah's Journey: an historical novel
    This is a book describing a Quaker family beset by troubles. From the first it leads one to want more of the story. It is well-written and makes one want to find out what happens to the characters. I enjoyed the introduction to the characters and enjoyed the story. This is an excellent read.

    Great Characterization!

    As an avid reader of historical fiction, I look for characters who make the facts of the story come to life. This is the case with Rebekah's Journey. How could we not feel every emotion that ripped her young soul and mind as she made her journey and established a life in the new world. As for facts, the threads that wove the Quakers' story into America's tapestry are ones that have had great impact, and it is such books as these that give readers insight into sometimes long-neglected accounts of those early indentured servants, many of whom helped develop this great country.

    More than a summer read....

    Rebecca's Journey is a moving and inspiring testament to not only the faith and frustrations of Quaker immigrants, but also to the ability for us all to measure determination, revenge, and desire into one's reason for living. The reader is immediately drawn into Rebecca's life through a colorfully, descriptive narrative that creates a sincere interest to turn the page, complete the next chapter, and look for the resolution that the author has artistically woven into the plot and characters that make up the journey Rebecca is drawn to live.

    The story is intriguing, fast moving, and based on the underlying support of the ability of faith to guide and provide for life's hardships and blessings. The characters are realistically drawn and completely developed through their interactions and the author's insight and subdued point of view.

    Rebecca's Journey will be more than a summer read. It will leave the reader with a renewed sense of purpose and a wonder of the strength of faith in our own lives today. I strongly recommend Rebecca's Journey to be your journey and that you share the emotions that Ann Bell has created with this, her latest work.
