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.

Reader Problem Book Tag

 

Graphics By: YouTube.com(Bottom 2 Book Tags) and tinyobsessions.wordpress.com(Top Book Tag)

I have been tagged by WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) for the Reader Problems Book Tag. If you want to visit her site and maybe even give her a follow you can click on the above link.


The Questions From WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) Will Be In Bold Print And  My Answers Will Be In Italics.

  1. You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? I read the back of the books and read the interesting sounding books first.
  2. You’re halfway through a book and you’re not just loving it. Do You Quit or are you committed? Most of the time I’m committed but sometimes I have to just quit.
  3. The end of the year is coming and you’re so close, but so far away on your Goodreads challenge. Do you try and catch up and how? If I were taking a Goodreads challenge, I would try to catch up by reading as many books as I could.
  4. The covers do. not. match.  How do you cope? Don’t worry about it.
  5. Everyone and their mother loves a book you don’t like. Who do you bond with over shared feelings. I let my opinion be made known and hope I can still bond with my book friends.
  6. You’re reading a book and you’re about to start crying in public. How do you deal? I usually don’t read in public so problem solved.
  7. A sequel of a book you loved just came out, but you’ve forgotten a lot from the prior novel. Will you re-read the book? Skip the sequel? Try to find a synopsis on Good reads? I would probably re-read the book.
  8. You Do Not Want Anyone. ANYONE. Borrowing your books. How do you tell people nope when they ask? Just Say No. Family is a little bit harder to turn down.
  9. Reading ADD. You’ve picked up and put down 5 books in the last month. How do you get over your reading slump. Put the book down and watch tv. Take a break.
  10. There are so many new books coming out that you’re dying to read! How many do you actually buy? I’m unemployed so not many.
  11. After you’ve bought the books you can’t wait to get to, how long do they sit on your shelf before you get to them. It depends on my TBR books. Also, if I’m in the middle of a book, I’ll finish the book first.

I really don’t know who to tag so if your name is not below and you want to do this tag GO FOR IT!! EVERYONE HAS BEEN TAGGED!!

bloggingu-blue-logo

Hey everyone, guess what? Today is day 5 of 5 of my Commenting Basics Course. To day I had to find a comment that looked interesting and comment on it. It was hard to find a comment but I found one. Actually, I found more than 1 so I commented on more than 1 comment.

Some of today’s tips talked about linking. I’m new at linking but I’m halfway there. I guess I’ll see if there are more courses I need to take. LOL. >”<🙂🙂>”<

Commenting Basics: Day 3 – Ask Some Questions

Today is Day 3 of my Commenting Basics Course and my assignment for the day was to read a post and ask 2 or 3 questions. It’s supposed to help spark ideas and possibly make the reader of the questions ask questions themselves and possibly give them ideas.

The post I read and asked questions on was KittyClysm. To read the post I read you can go their link which is https://kittyclysm.com/supawstars-award-sept-2017/ .

2 days left and I’ll be done with part of the blogging course.

Fundamentals Of Blogging: Day 11 – Make A Prompt Personal: Daily Prompt- Overcome

bloggingu-blue-logoUpdate:

Today is Day 11 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course.  Today I’m to make a prompt personal. How I do this is going to The Daily Post and see what the Daily prompt is and if it doesn’t move me, I’m to try another. I’m also to give a link to the prompt so that others can find my post on the prompt page.

Today The Daily Prompt Is: Overcome so that is what my post is about:

Overcoming something personal is never easy to do but it is well worth it in the end because what you’re striving to overcome you will eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel and when you do, it will be one happy day for you when you finally overcome your troubles.

When I was in Elementary School, is when I had to start overcoming my troubles. You see, I was picked on and/or bullied the whole way through Elementary School and High School and then after High School graduation, I got told by a counselor that I would never go to college. Not a good feeling.

But in the end, everything turned out for the best. My parents and grandparents supported me and I started out at a community college and graduated from there then transferred up to a 4 year college and graduated from there. Although, I had one professor think that the best thing for me would be to drop his class. When I stuck it out and passed his class he took me aside and told me he was glad I stuck his class out and that he was happy for me.

When I graduated, I was very happy because I had something no one could take from me-a degree. Also I was happy because I did something that I was told I would never do.

The End Result: 

The end result was me not ending up with one degree but two degrees. I had overcome being picked on and bullied in school as well as being told I couldn’t do something. Overcoming this wasn’t easy but with support from my family I eventually overcame everything.

A Suggestion:

Everyone has something they need to overcome so don’t think you are alone because you’re not. With support you’ll eventually overcome your problems. Some problems are harder to overcome than others so they will take longer to resolve. Once again if you have support you’ll find out it’s easier to face.
