Editorial Reviews

Rita Thedford Reviews - Rita Thedford
It was a time of sorrow and loss. A time of war and sacrifice. For Louise and Cliff it was also a time of love that spans the years of the Great Depression and the dust bowl and travels to war-ravaged Europe. But in the end, it is the promise of a wooden nickel and never-ending love that binds these two together through the years. Alisha Paige paints a vivid portrait of young love that stands the test of time and survives, whole and strong, through troubled times.
Tricia Lee Reviews - Tricia Lee
This is a love story that captures the essence of some of the most important events of the twentieth century: from the depression and the dust bowl to WWII and beyond. The Wooden Nickel holds true love together and never lets hope die. The author has an uncanny knowledge of the language, the landscape, and the family life of rural Texas. Told in real time and in flashbacks, the reader can follow the story line without missing a beat. It is impossible to put the book down.
Michael Murphy Reviews - Michael Murphy
The Wooden Nickel grabs the reader in an emotional embrace and never lets go. Paige weaves a delightful love story that begins with a chance meeting during the Texas dust bowl years and spans half a century. The drama and love between two innocents, Cliff and Louise, unfolds amid a struggling nation, a world at war, the Holocaust, years of separation and love kept alive by an unpretentious wooden nickel. For readers who enjoy a good love story.
Snow's Place
Alisha captures all five senses in this heart felt historical romance, as she takes you to a time long forgotten and only remembered or told by our great grandparents and grandparents. "The Wooden Nickel" is an amazing read for anyone who enjoys learning about themselves, their great grandparents, grandparents, and how they lived long ago.

"The Wooden Nickel" is a historical romance, that takes you back to a time when women were proper and men brought home the bacon.
D.S. Reviews - D.S. Luvs2Read
The Wooden Nickle is a story I've had my eye on for some time but have finally had the time to read. I wish I'd read it sooner. What a super story. Full of intrigue and passion, this romance was positively gripping. I'm still amazed by the characters. Their trials became mine. Their passion, mine. It was intense and dramatic. I loved it. This novel resonates a unique richness that had me re-reading what quickly became my favorite parts. This novel was too astounding to read just once
