BOOK REVIEW

I thought this book was interesting and a very good teaching tool. It teaches us about gluttony, forgiveness, humbleness, anger, acceptance and so much more.

I found this book that is about two people who are brought together by two totally different pasts. The guy meets her and thinks she’s beautiful, friendly, supportive and in one word flawless. To find out more about the book please read the book it’s a good read.

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. However, It all came together in the end which I enjoyed.

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.

A Book Review: A Soldier’s Promise

DSCN0306

Introduction:

A Soldier’s Promise  is a book by Cynthia Thomason . This book is a Heartwarming book from Harlequin Romance Books. Don’t let the name Harlequin Romance fool you, Harlequin has more than just romance books. They have:   Suspense, Passion, Home & Family, Inspirational, Western, Historical, Sweet Romance, Medical Romance, Paranormal and even have Books For Teens( That is in a different link listed below in the Link Section of this post). A book for everyone. If you don’t see your preference listed, there is a search box you can use in the link called Harlequin Books

My Synopsis: 

This is about a soldier and his teenage daughter. The soldier is right out of the service and also just lost his wife. He is trying to adjust to civilian life. A teacher who is trying to get over own problems tries to help the soldier and his teenage daughter. The teacher has made a promise  to herself. Will she break her own rules/policy?

Publisher’s Synopsis: 

Brenna Sullivan has a strict policy about not getting emotionally involved with her students. Yet there’s something about the new student, Carrie, and her father that has Brenna breaking all her rules.

Mike Langston’s parenting methods may be more than a little outdated, but Brenna is struck by the brave and honorable man he is and, despite her better judgement, she’s falling deeper and deeper for him. But how can she cross the line when their feelings start to grow?

What I Liked: 

I enjoyed reading a book about a soldier who’s right out of the service. I liked reading that this wasn’t the only problem he had. Between being right out of the service, raising a teenage daughter by himself plus his wife dying, it made the book more interesting to see how he solved these problems. I liked reading that the teacher who had her own problems reached out to try to help a veteran soldier solve his problems. Did the teacher and the veteran soldier get their problems solved? You’ll have to read the book and find out.

What I Didn’t Like:

I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about the book. Yes, it was that good in my opinion.
