Meet the Author

40 something mother and wife, I am in love with reading and writing. My other passions include photography and horses, and my longsuffering family is squeezed in there as well. Thanks guys! I live in Bend, Oregon and train horses when I am not writing or creating photographic art or skiing, hiking, or, well, you probably get the picture. I hope you enjoy reading my stories as much as I have enjoyed writing them. I look forward to your feedback. Thanks for looking!

    Lots of historical, some fiction

    I think hardcore fans of historical fiction will enjoy this book. It is packed with historical detail and is a classic story. The author clearly sought to create a visual picture of the period, with detailed walkthroughs of places as they would have existed. The downside is twofold. One, recreating a classic story should only be attempted if you can add something to the telling, and I am not sure naming the entire ancestry of each character does that. Two, adding too much detail can make a book read like a history text rather than a story. Also, although the author seems to have ability, she stretched too far in areas. The result was ridiculous metaphor and awkward or just plain incorrect word usage (using "hence" to mean in the past, lightening when she meant lightning, and so on). I think the book would have been much better if she had scaled back and used vocabulary she was comfortable with. I give this 3.5 stars, or a 7 out of 10.
