Book Description

Montana Territory in 1883 was a dangerous place--especially for a blind woman struggling to make her way through an early winter snowstorm. Undaunted, Noelle Kramer fought to remain independent. But then a runaway horse nearly plunged her into a rushing, ice-choked river, before a stranger's strong, sure hand saved her from certain death.

And yet this was no stranger. Though she could not know it, her rescuer was rancher Thad McKaslin, the man who had once loved her more than life itself. Losing her had shaken all his most deeply held beliefs. Now he wondered if the return of this strong woman was a sign that somehow he could find his way home.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully written inspirational western romance. January 31, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Seventeen-year-old Noelle Kramer was filled with the hopes and dreams of first love, believing that in Thad MacKaslin she had found the man she would spend the rest of her life with. But on the night they were to elope, she learned he had left town without a word, and she believed she would never see him again. Although her heart was broken, she planned to marry another and at least have a home and family of her own, until a tragic accident left her parents dead and Noelle blind, destroying her plans for the future.

Now, five years later, in the winter of 1883, Noelle lives a quiet life with her aunt, uncle, and cousins. Her blindness has caused her to give up all her dreams of love, marriage, and children. On their way home from town during a blizzard, Noelle and her aunt are almost killed by a runaway horse, but a stranger saves them - a stranger Noelle soon realizes is Thad MacKaslin, who has returned to their hometown of Angel Falls, Montana. And although both Noelle and Thad try to deny it, they still have feelings for each other. Has God given them a second chance at love and happiness together?

This book was one of the most enjoyable historical romances I've read in a while. Fans of western and inspirational romances are sure to enjoy this story of two people who had given up on a future together but are given a second chance to realize their dreams. The love story was incredibly sweet and emotional, rather than so many romances which focus on the physical romance but neglect the emotional side of a relationship. I'd highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy a sweet and emotional romance without all the graphic scenes.

3.0 out of 5 stars homespun bride September 20, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I honestly don't understand the bad reviews for this book. I thought it was a light ispirational read. I almost didn't get this book, even though free, because of the negative reviews. I am glad however that I chose to go with my own instincts. Ofcourse there were alot of descriptions in the book.. The heroine is blind.. We are reading about her world and how she navigates it physically and emotionally. Yes, it was a little predictable, but aren't 99.9% of inspirational romances? That's what we read them for the HEA

2.0 out of 5 stars Not A Good Read March 6, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I almost could not finish this book. It was so-o-o repetitive that I think the whole story could have been written in about 20 pages. When an author repeats words, descriptions and conversations, it's as if the reader isn't smart enough to "get it" the first time. Insulting. I suspect the repetitions were to pad the story for more pages.

Besides having the story line drummed into your head, the plot was so predictable that I was almost embarrassed for the author. Free is too expensive for this time is worth more.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it April 14, 2010

The repetition in this book is a complete turn off, not to mention frustrating. The plot was weak and proceeded at a sluggish pace. I made it more than half way through when I decided it wasn't going to get any better so I didn't even bother finishing it. I didn't want to waste anymore time or effort.

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive. Poorly written. March 3, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
The story line was o.k., but completely predictable. The author repeated herself in her descriptions causing me to get irritated at the writing. I'm glad this was free.

4.0 out of 5 stars A true and heartfelt romance September 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story is so unbelievably touching that, despite its problems, I could not give it fewer than 4 stars. During their youth, Noelle and Thad were madly in love and planning to get married. Then, one day he disappeared without warning, breaking Noelle's heart. She determined love was not what she thought it was, or perhaps he never truly loved her the way she loved him. Tragedy struck her life again when she and her parents were involved in an accident. She lost both her parents and her sight. When Homespun Bride begins, Noelle is a grown woman who lives with her aunt and family. Riding home one day, their horse gets spooked, and they are saved from another accident from a passing stranger. Unfortunately for Noelle, even though she cannot see this man, his voice is oddly familiar. She soon learns he is none other than Thad, her childhood love, who has now returned to his family's land.

Throughout the novel, Thad and Noelle reconnect. She does not trust him, but she tries to forgive him for the sake of peace, hoping their paths will rarely cross. Thad has other intentions, however. He's determined to prove to her that he is an honest man and that his love was true (and still is). Meanwhile, Noelle knows she cannot be his. She has lost her sight, and therefore, she believes, her value as a wife to him. Thad is a true hero, a man of integrity who cherishes the woman he loves and treats her with unfailing gentleness.

Yes, the story does become repetitive as mentioned in previous reviews. There is a lot of internal dialogue, and Noelle and Thad are constantly talking themselves out of falling in love with each other again (although it's obvious they never stopped loving each other).

1.0 out of 5 stars Well worth $00.00 and not a penny more March 9, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author was able to stretch an idea to fill the whole book by interminably repeating every thought. The characters were all there, but failed to step forward. Avoid this.

Maps and various poor quality sketch-like drawings on Kindle.
I agree that maps, illustration, what have you, are often difficult to read on the Kindle. Is any way these could be scanned and made available to the purchasers as a pdf or similar on a website?
