Editorial Reviews

Review

Well-researched and well-written, this historical romance is a gritty story of abuse, hardship .. But also a story of hope, goodness and love. There was a real beauty to the mystical appearances of Penn in Kittie's dreams. --Jill - GoodReads.com

Tragic and sad with the expected happy ending. --Kimberly - GoodReads.com

A warm hearted story that will have you reaching for the closest tissue frequently. Brings the past to life ... in a way that will make it hard to put down to complete life's routine tasks. Rating: 5 hearts

--THE ROMANCE STUDIO - Dee Dailey

Heartwarming and Engaging. From the first scene to the last, Bailey Bristol pulls your heart into Kittie's world and refuses to let go. Action scenes are as intense as the emotions, the loss real, the hope tangible, and the love exquisite.- DMS

Brings the past to life with vivid scenarios...in ways that enhance the romantic nature of the story. This tale does everything we want a book to do. Overall rating: 5 HEARTS Sensuality rating: Mildly sensual

From the Inside Flap

REVIEW from THE ROMANCE STUDIO:
Traveling across the country with a toddler in his care isn't an easy task for Jake Kannady but he keeps his promises. His best friend, Penn Thornton, asks him to find his sister. Fatally wounded at Wounded Knee, both he and his wife Two Hearts die leaving their son Tug "Screaming Thunder" in his care. Kittie, Penn's sister, had been adopted off the Orphan Train. She had probably ended up with the worst possible family. Abused, beaten, raped, she had finally escaped with her adopted sister, Hannah. Both Jake and Kittie end up in Mounthaven, Ohio. It takes them a while to find one another but it gets even more interesting when they do.

Bailey Bristol pens one of those warm hearted stories that will have you reaching for the closest tissue frequently. Kittie, or Kate, has one of the hardest lives a heroine could have but, through it all, she remains a spunky woman whose courage can only be admired. The Archers and the Minnicks are two families whose kind hearted ways will warm a reader's heart. Other characters are also memorable as they walk through the story affecting the reader and the main characters with their deeds and their lives. Contrasted with the Kruelle family we can only admire those who are good when they don't have to be.

This author brings the past to life with vivid scenarios. Keeping alive the memory of Penn and Two Hearts in ways that enhance the romantic nature of the story is wonderfully done. This tale does everything we want a book to do. It's told in a way that will make it hard to put down to complete life's routine tasks.

Yeah, I hope it all worked out for them in the end, and I'm glad God was walking with'em cause I sure as heck couldn't any longer, "daggummit"!

I felt like the author forced the characters into acting the way they did for the last half of the book.

OK, so I'm in the minority here, but I bought this book based on the great reviews and feel it is only fair to provide another perspective for other readers. I will say, that I did like the premise of the plot for this book and really wanted to enjoy it, but the writing was so trite and filled with so many old western cliches that I just couldn't even finish it. It felt like the author wrote the story and then went back in and put in every possible "old west'ism" she could think of in every possible line just to make the dialouge seem more authentic. It was overkill to the point where I felt like I was flinching with every "daggummit, jumpim Jehosaphat, gosh darnit, side winder, skedaddled, chompin at the bit"... well you get the idea. I know the author made a concerted effort to write dialogue that was filled with dilalect reflective of the region and time and even in some cases age (eg., the children spoke "baby talk" and she wrote it out as such for the reader) to enrich the story for the reader, but it just didn't work. It was so cliche and trite I was practically cringing as I read and I just couldn't even finish it.

Also, one reviewer mentioned "God sauce", and I have to say if I read the phrase "God walks with you" one more time I was deleting the book. I don't mind religion in my books, I usually rather enjoy it, but it was the way it was written in and the repetetiveness that made it so annoying. I just couldn't get past the writing enough to even care about the characters. Yeah, I hope it all worked out for them in the end, and I'm glad God was walking with'em cause I sure as heck couldn't any longer, "daggummit"!

Format: Paperback
This is a historical romance. The main character, Kittie, and her brother were put on an orphan train after the death of their mother in the 1800's. Ten year old Kittie was taken in by a family and Penn, the older brother, left behind. He was hoping that his sister would be given a loving home.

Kittie's new family is far from loving. She is abused physically, emotionally, and sexually. The mother of the family dies after childbirth of a little girl and Kittie lives in the home trying to hide her femininity to pass as far under the radar as possible. It doesn't work. She lives in these horrible circumstances for three years before leaving, taking the little girl with her.

She runs to the town her mother grew up in, hoping to forge a new life for herself and Hannah Marie. She runs from one abuse to another. The circumstances she finds herself living in are far from favorable and to top it off, Hannah Marie is very ill.

In a moment of compassion she helps a frail woman in her time of need. Her simple act opens a window that leads to an improved life and better circumstances for her and Hannah.

She finds that her brother's love for her never ceased and that love can be found in less than ideal circumstances. She learns that there are compassionate and helpful people around her.

At the beginning of the story, we are presented with a young woman who is abused and battered. She moves from one abusive circumstance to another, a cycle many find themselves in. Through love and kindness she finds the strength to believe in herself again and become the woman she was always meant to be. I think this is a great idea for victims to know. Life can get better. There are people who care.

The romance was rushed.

This was a nice story with good character development and an engaging plot.

There were some faults in logic - for instance, Mr Archer mused about the hours he spent as a child playing on the dumbwaiter in the guest bedroom, then two pages later he marveled at what a wonderful idea his wife had had to install a dumbwaiter in the guest bedroom.

The only real problem I had with this story, was the issue of god sauce. That's where an author writes a perfectly nice story, then goes back and slaps on some god sauce to appeal more to a certain demographic. It's disingenuous and unconvincing, and merely detracts from the story. Whether it's lordy sauce or buddha sauce or spirity sauce doesn't matter; if it wasn't integral to the story then it shouldn't be stuck on afterwards. imho.

I had high hopes for this book but it didn't live up to any of my expectations. Not only were the details a mess but after a while even the characters began to get annoying. Here are a few of my issues:

- Kitty runs away from her foster home with the belief that her foster father is chasing her. After she gets into an accident on a bridge and meets up with the main guy, she marvels about how she can be free now since her step father is dead and won't be following after her. Then, towards the end of the book the main guy tells kitty (seemingly for the first time) that the guy is dead because for whatever reason she was still running on the belief that he was alive and stalking her.

- The romance between the main characters seemed rushed and immature. Not only am I still not sure WHEN they first do the deed (because apparently they spent the whole night 'in each other's arms' after a heavy make out session and some groping). I could have forgiven that but they fell in love in less than a week and even more importantly an 18 year old girl whose first experience with sex came from a brutal rape that ended in a broken jaw (and simply escalated for four years with more of the same) would not fall into the bed of the first guy who flashed his dimples at her.

- The story was sappy. At times it just felt like bristol was trying to force me to tears or to feel some sort of heavy emotion. At first I tried to go along with it but towards the middle of the book I was getting irritated, and by the end I was just disgusted and jaded. It's wonderful to have a meanigful lesson and an outlook that god had blessed a characters life, but in many ways this book was trying too hard to prove a point and it left me feeling as if the sentiments were faked.
