Review

  • '"Far Horizons" by Kate Hewitt is a romantic historic fictional book based on some true events and ancestors of the author. The author cleverly embellishes upon the stories to create a book that will keep you on edge from the beginning to the end. Can true love wait for two years and with an ocean between them? Kate Hewitt uses a great writing style to keep multiple plot lines moving forward, but yet keeps you in suspense the whole book.'  --The Kindle Book Review

From the Author

I hope you enjoy this story that is inspired by the letters between my own ancestors that have been passed down through the generations. Having heard about Allan and Harriet from my mother since I was a little girl, I am grateful for the opportunity to bring them to life on the page. You can learn more about the Emigrants Trilogy as well as my other books at my website, kate-hewitt.com. Thanks for reading!  -Kate

Though it is more a Romance than a History, this is a book that would definitely have potential in print and could compete with most of the historical novels I've reads in terms of the quality of the writing. The author is working from actual letters handed down in her family and does a good job of keeping language and facts in period and setting.

Unlike many ebooks, this novel is very well proofread. The writing is also of very high quality and believable. I'm a reader who loses interest in clumsy writing, but this book presented no such problems.

"Far Horizons" by Kate Hewitt is a romantic historic fictional book based on some true events and ancestors of the author. The author cleverly embellishes upon the stories to create a book that will keep you on edge from the beginning to the end. Can true love wait for two years and with an ocean between them? Kate Hewitt uses a great writing style to keep multiple plot lines moving forward, but yet keeps you in suspense the whole book.

The main plot line is about a romance between Allan MacDougall and Harriet Campell which is split up due to Allan moving with his family to Canada and Harriet not getting her father's approval for marriage. After great hardships from both families and doubts of the future of their relationship, they are driven apart with little hope of coming back to each other. I won't ruin the ending of the book, but will tell you that it isn't going to disappoint you.

I found myself having a very hard time putting this book down. I constantly was left with wanting to know how something was going to turn out, or what was going to happen next. It is a little predictable, but still keeps you interested. I can't wait for the next book in the "The Emigrants Trilogy" to be released! This trilogy is definitely on my "watch for new release" list.

I love books that span generations and countries. I especially love the fact that I could give this book to any of my young nieces, and they would not be morally corrupted. This book embraces good family values, and that is hard to find these days.

This was an easy read, but somewhat predictable story. I will probably read the sequels, but don't have any urgency about finding out what happens to the characters.

I enjoyed the first book in this series and gave it a better review. This book was hard for me to follow the concept of the writing. You would be reading about one character, deep into his or her story and location and the next paragraph would change to a different character, his or her story and location. The first time it happened early on in the book- I found myself completely lost and had to go back probley 5 to 10 pages and reread only to find that the person, location, problem had changed. I found myself going backwards in the book over and over again to not get lost in the story line. Very confusing and distracting. Also the continuation of the storyline wasn't as interesting. This book to me was hard to follow the story line and the list of characters and just not as interesting as the first book. A dissapointment to me.

I couldn't put this book down (as other reviewers noted) and read it in 2 days. There was hope, drama, joy, tragedy - everything that makes for a good story. Strong, multidimensional male and female characters that don't resort to stereotypes. I loved both settings - rural Scotland and rural Canada - as well as the historical context. Can't wait for the next book in the trilogy.

This was an enjoyable read. Nice to find out that much of the book was based on real people and places. I would recommend it. There were no graphic encounters.

We are supposed to be enthralled with a pair of spineless individuals who choose to be victims of their fathers' agendas. So much time whining and thinking or talking about their problems, with little effort made to change them. Just when one character's story starts to build up steam, the focus is shifted back into the slow lane of another character's story. I made it through just over half of the book before I gave up.

I prefer historical novels to romances, and this was below par on both.
