Review

Rodger Blind, Certified US History Teacher
High school level American history teachers may find a great teaching tool in the novel FAR AWAY HOME. It's realistic, historically accurate and captivates students' imaginations; they "love" reading it.
Amy Goodman, Award winning syndicated journalist, columnist and author
FAR AWAY HOME is an engaging, memorable love story. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Geoff Woodland, Author of THE TRIANGLE TRADE, an antislavery novel
An engrossing story set against the back drop of early America. A page turner of adventure, romance and strong characters who stand up for themselves and their friends despite the costs

I just finished this book and came onto Amazon looking for similar book recommendations. I read the review about the 'shill' reviews, and I can see what you mean. The reviewers (including myself) haven't reviewed anything else. But this book was actually very good, even if the other reviewers were friends of the author.

I really enjoyed the characters and the character growth. I really empathized with the main character - I was frustrated (at men!), upset and sad with her. I learned a lot of interesting historical facts, but it was never teach-y. The romance wasn't over-the-top, although the main character did seem to be interested in a large number of men (but I guess in the West where there are a limited number of women and lots of men are throwing themselves at you, that could be understandable). There was also an odd change of point-of-view in the beginning - the author wrote a bit from Tim's point-of-view, when she never deviated from Aislynn's before or after.

Now I may have to go write a bunch of other reviews to make this one valid, but the bottom line is that, for me, this book is extremely enjoyable and well worth the money!

Some writers excel at creating a world we want to succumb to, while others master the dynamics of a story that has the power to affect our sense of humanity. I feel that Susan Denning has found THE balance. Because I come from a filmmaking perspective, I especially enjoyed her skill at immediately grabbing the reader by the collar and dropping him in Aislynn's meticulously crafted world - the smells, the textures, the social dynamic, the moral compass of that time. And I found myself smiling with gratitude when, by page two, I realized I wanted to remain in that world. And I did, and left only when I unfortunately had to, at the end of Aislynn's journey from the girl she was to the woman she was always meant to become. I am ready, Mrs. Denning, as some of your other reviewers also seem to be, to be there for her next journey.
This is not a book you read; it is a book you experience. I hope that many, many, many get to enjoy it.

I loved this story. The author's characters are well fleshed-out. However, I found that the errors made me crazy. Maybe it is just the kindle version that needs some additional editing, but having errors like, pronouns misused, naming people incorrectly, and lack of punctuation just bothers me. I found I had to re-read parts to figure out what the heck was going on. I did enjoy the book if my grousing doesn't turn anyone off!

I love westerns and western romance novels, but this one was so boring that I had to skim the last 25-30% just to get through it. Another inexpensive Kindle novel that I found wasn't worth even the .99. Aislynn was so flat and childish and she never grows as a character. The author never explains why Aislynn makes such foolish decisions, nor satisfactorily explains her obsession with Tim. Often we read this genre because it's escapist, and it's interesting to see how characters work their way through difficult situations. However, this plot was so contrived and choppy, and the characters so flat and two-dimensional that they seem to be just thrown into situations one after the other and we don't ever see them working them through, or in Aislynn's case, maturing and growing up. The writing is choppy as well, and long, boring descriptions could have been tightened up. Relationships could have been developed with more depth. Aislynn could have grown up and become a fine woman. So many could have beens...

Far Away Home was a great read. I have never written an Amazon review, but I enjoyed this book so much I wanted to share my thoughts. I gave this novel to my husband, daughters, daughter-in-law and friends and everyone has had the same response- they loved it. It subtly weaves historic fact into an engaging story. I learned so much about how hard life was on the trail and the challenges women found when they reached their destinations. Far Away Home is at its core a love story. It is Aislynn Denehy's relationships with three different men that move the story along. However, for me, it was Aislynn's journey from a young, sheltered Irish- American girl living in New York City in 1867 to a mature, independent woman that made me compulsively turn the pages; I wanted to know what she was going to do next. Aislynn is not your typical heroine. Of course, she is attractive to men. She is smart enough to know she needs a man to survive in her world, but she has an independent streak. She seems kind of spoiled, selfish, inconsiderate and manipulative, but she is also resourceful, brave, and a devoted friend. She has no family so she builds a circle of friends that she loves, supports and even feeds and shelters. Aislynn has the courage to leave New York, start her own business, ask for the right to vote, shield an abused prostitute and protect and defend herself and her friends when necessary. She's feisty and stubborn, but she's generous and caring. In other words- she's interesting and someone worth knowing. Aislynn is like so many women of that time, who took chances, challenged traditions and laid the groundwork for the freedoms women have today.
