The Visitor has to be my favorite of the English Garden series. The characters have a depth that make them almost real, and the plot is very original so it gives a kind of freshness to the book. Overall, it is an amazing book and I highly recommend it.

I enjoyed reading 'The Visitor' by Lori Wick. It was the kind of book that you can curl up with on your couch with steamy mug of cappucino and read within a day. The book starts out with Cassandra Steele being asked to read to a blind Alexander Tate. Cassandra doesn't believe herself to be as pretty as her sisters. When she starts to have feelings for Alexander she begins to pull away from him because she fears that when he sees her and sees that she is not 'pretty' like the other Steele girls that he will be repulsed. Of course, Alexander loves her and when he regains his sight his feelings don't change. That is where the real challenge comes into play. He has to convince Cassie that he thinks she is beautiful and that he loves her. It is a really sweet book and I thank God for a talent like Lori Wick.

Since I have read and liked other books by Lori Wick I gave this one a chance. So far my favorite series by her is the Kensington Chronicles which are all great reads. I have read the first two books in this series thought that they are okay but I barely even finished this one. The story line is a good one but the problem is the author jumps from story to story within chapters. Just as soon as you are getting into the scene that you are currently reading it switches to another part of the story. The secondary story was sweet but there is also a third and fourth story line that makes for a confusing book at times. In addition, whenever I got to the sermon parts I skipped right over them. The climax of the story didn't seem realistic to me either. It was too easily and quickly resolved.

I thought the other two in the series were better, but this one is good reading. Parts of the storyline is somewhat disappointing a few times, but the overall message is great. I would still recommend this one, even though it isn't one of my 'favorites.' I still enjoyed it; I finished reading it in less than 48 hours! I love how Lori keeps you updated on the characters from #1 and #2 in the series. It was easy to 'connect' with all of the characater's personal situations. It was a really good book overall. I would recommend it for someone and especially to continue the series. It is worth reading.

I thought this was a great book. Though not as good as the first in the English Garden series. There were too many charectars and it was hard to keep track of who was who. They were only put in the book cause they were in the preivious ones. But all in all it was still a pretty good story.
