Forever Is A Long Time

What a great post. Mandibelle16 wrote this post and it is a great read. Please Read This Post.

When I first got sick with POTS, I asked the nurse if this illness would last forever. She told me yes it would, and I felt sick to my stomach. Tears streamed down my cheeks like they never have before — I’m someone who tries to hold them in until they just spill out — and for the first time in my life the future looked like a deep, dark hole.

Forever is a heck of a long time to have something new and frightening. I couldn’t walk ten feet without feeling like someone was spinning me around on a desk chair, and I didn’t want to keep living a life like this. I felt so much regret for the moments I had a working body and didn’t appreciate them. I regretted the many mistakes I’ve made as a human being because I felt like my illness was punishment for…

A Historical Book Report: Gingham Bride

 

DSCN0365

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

INTRODUCTION:

Hello and welcome Everyone, in my book report this week I’m going from a historical view. The book is called Gingham Bride by New York Times Best Selling Author Jillian Hart . It deals with arranged marriages and how children were treated.

WHAT DREW ME TO READ THE BOOK:

curiosity and the publisher’s synopsis. It also sounded interesting and I wanted to see what a fiction book was like on these subjects.

MY SYNOPSIS:

This book is about a good-looking young man named Ian  and a beautiful young woman named Fiona that their parents and grandparents have arranged for them to be married. It’s also about a controlling man who got married just so he could give orders and sit around the house and play poker and drink beer. If Fiona does something wrong he hits her and she can’t go to school for days. To find out how things turn out for these two you’ll have to read the book.

PUBLISHER’S SYNOPSIS:

Fiona O’Rourke doesn’t believe in love—and certainly not in a marriage arranged by her cruel father.  And even if her unexpected betrothed seems honorable and kind, can she trust his motives…or the attraction between them?

Ian McPherson came to Montana to salvage his family’s dwindling fortune, not to take a wife. But he’s instantly drawn to Fiona. He wants to protect her—even if that means pretending that they’re engaged. In a season of surprises and miracles, there’s nothing he won’t give to show Fiona his love is for always.

THE SETTING:

The book setting takes place in Montana with deep snow and a chilling cold.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK:

That despite Fiona’s hardships at home, she had friends at school and at work(that had to be kept secret from her parents) that helped her through each day. Also, I liked the fact that this guy was willing to pretend to be engaged just to protect her from her father and from anyone else that could be engaged to her.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK:

I thought there was  too much going on in the book.

RECOMMENDATION FOR THE BOOK:

I found the book an interesting read. My recommendation would be to read the book for yourself and form your own opinion. you may have a different opinion than I do.

CONCLUSION:

If you read this book let me know what you think.  I provided a link above that has a bunch of links you may be interested in. Below is another link. For the other links click on the above link where it says Jillian Hart.
