Review

"The story is of love and loss, friendship and hardship. The character development is fantastic. You will finish the novel feeling as though you really know these people. At times, the story is so descript that you're transported right to the Southern California ranch or the hospital room where the story takes place." - A. Eutsler

"All of us Horse lovers rarely can find a good book to read that you can find a bit of yourself in but I found one " Remembering August " is Book One Of the Triple C Ranch Saga. Dont second guess you thought on purchasing this book - all horse lovers, cowboys and cowgirls will love this book." - J. Ford

About the Author

Rodney V. Earle has been a storyteller all his life. He has told many a tall tale, even in his youth. His small-town country roots in the Midwest taught him the values and rewards of hard work, even in his later years in big-city, corporate America. He confesses to being a bit of a nomad earlier in life, but has settled in Hollywood. The motion picture industry caught his attention quickly as a photographer, progressed to short film production and direction, and morphed into writing screenplays.

"Remembering August" even started out as a screenplay about a wild, troublesome filly destined for the slaughterhouse. It eventually morphed into a fictional novel with a strong female lead (prevalent in all of his stories), and then ended up as an intricate, thrilling "saga," set in the world of horses and ranch life, coupled with the proximity of the celebrity lifestyle. 

Rodney's influences include a mixture of the simple realism of John Steinbeck, the "off-center" style of Stephen King, a generous dose of Victor Hugo-style humanity, and the timeless romanticism of William Shakespeare.

"Remembering August" is the first installment of the "Triple C Ranch Saga," set in the rural outskirts of Simi Valley, celebrity-filled Malibu, and suburban Thousand Oaks, California.

Remembering August starts out with a young widow who trains horses and has a boarding facility. While working with a young horse Colleen's mind travels back in time to some moments in her life. It makes me wonder if she is rehashing the moments or thinking she should have done something different during that time.

While this story only covers about 3-4 days or possibly a week in Colleen's life the story has a Big impact. I know most people might think that a story that only cover's those few of days would think that a book like this would be in to much detail but that is just not true. The author has created a wonderful book that had me crying at the end. This is the first in a series of books. I am eagerly awaiting the second book in the series. I want to know how some people tie into the book and how others are left behind.

After finishing this book it will leave the reader wondering why the author killed off such a wonderful character. It will also leave the reader wondering why so many mysterious characters. I know that the author will let everyone know why in the future Triple C Ranch Saga series. According to the author there will be a total of 3 possible 4 books in this series.

The author has written some very strong female characters in this book. According to the author he grew up with some very strong females in his life most importantly his mother. He states that he could not write a female character any other way. The strongest and main character in this book is Colleen, but there are several other important and wonderful character in this book.

the bunnies and I give this book 4 stars

I have never been compelled to write a review before, but this book grabbed me from page 1! I loved every single character and can't wait to find out more about them in the future books. I couldn't put this book down. Rodney, bring on books 2 & 3, I can't wait to find out what happens to the other characters!

I have no idea why other readers enjoyed this book. Do incomplete story lines make it mysterious? It seems to be a bunch of incoherent pieces that never come together. Interesting plot? No. Engaging, believable characters? No. I kept thinking the author was going to have a "ta-dah" moment, and weave all the strands into a story. Instead, I was left wondering why I wasted my time.

Remembering August is a awesome story wrote by Rodney V. Earle. Once I started reading it, I could not put it down. It is a story that could happen in real life today. It has humor, sadness, romance, Cowboys and horses and more. The main charecter in the story is Colleen Caldwell, a young widowed ranch owner that takes life by the horns and does not take crap from anyone. She has a great sense of humor and a huge kind heart and you wish you could meet her and be her friend in person! I was ready to pack up and take a trip there!! The story makes you feel like your right there with them and part of the whole ordeal!! I CANT WAIT for the rest of the series!!! I HIGHLY Recommend this book. It is entertaining and holds you there!! It is one that I will read again and again!!!

This book, Remembering August, had me laughing out loud, holding my breath in suspense, and wiping my teary eyes. It is a rare author that can successfully mix all of the elements that are in this book, but Rodney Earle has done it.
I am eagerly awaiting more books from him.

Remembering August (Triple C Ranch Saga)

I really liked Remembering August until the very end. I couldn't wait to get back to the book throughout most of the story and then the end just seemed really weak not leaving me with any suspense that I might be looking for a series or a finish to what had been happening. I didn't dislike it just felt like I wanted more or kind of a let down feeling. :( I'm from a working ranch background so loved the hard working cowgirl story line. I'm intrigued with the guy that shows up out of the blue to rescue her from the horse and I like the almost relationship that is starting to build with Joan and her ranch foreman. I loved the insert about the John Wayne rifle and how he came to own it. I do look forward to more of books from this author-Rodney V. Earle.

I really enjoyed reading Remembering August. I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy! The characters are people you want to meet, they are so real. I love how Rodney Earle gives us their back-story, so you really understand them and it fleshes out why they do some things and react in some ways. The story makes the book hard to put down and now I need to know what else happens to these "friends" that I know and like so much now!

I picked this up based on the rating and reviews. I could not believe the grade school writing starting in the first few pages with the repitition of how 'beautiful' the main character is. No descriptive words~ just the word beautiful over and over again. I got almost halfway through the book waiting for something~ a plot, an arc, a reason for all the great reviews~ but there was no reason to continue. If it is free, fine, but don't let go of hard earned money for this lousy book...
