4.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes, May 20, 2013

These recipes look good and seem to be simple to make. I wish other nutritional information was provided, particularly calorie count. Therefore: 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost five stars, May 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I would have liked to have given this five stars. The story is compelling and the characters believable. Unlike some novels of this type where it seems situations are contrived to keep the hero and heroine apart until the predictable reunion, the action was very believable. Well researched history added color. At times I cringed in horror at what our forbears endured to settle this country, and I gained a new respect for their sacrifice. The reason I only gave 4 stars was due to some editing issues. Such things as improper verb tenses, to instead of too, their instead of there, and some choppy sentences were distracting a bit. There were times when I got lost when the time frame moved forward, skipping ahead. It took some thought to figure out where we were. Small complaints, perhaps, but a story told with such love could certainly merit meticulous editing. All that aside, it's a great story. I hated to see it end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, February 8, 2013
I had to force myself to finish this book, and ended up skipping portions that dragged on a little too long. What an unlikeable heroine! She was totally self-centered, immature, and consumed with appearances. I was shocked at how easily she lied to everyone and the ease with which she justified her manipulations. Funny that she hid her sister's letters from her parents and then sent one herself that was so totally self-serving. Never could connect with any of the characters. The most believable was the younger sister and we didn't meet her until the end of the book. Too much time spent on daydreams which was very distracting. That time could have been used to give us more insight to the day-to-day interaction of the characters on the ranch. What a scene with Mother at the ranch! Is anyone really that totally self-absorbed?

This is an old melody with beautiful lyrics that has been interpreted by many artists over the years. James Taylor does a wonderful job. Beautiful melody, beautifully done.

This is one of the prettiest arrangements of an old favorite that I have heard in a long time. Love Roger Whitaker at Christmas time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better, January 2, 2013
The storyline was interesting, and the author had obviously done her research. I kept hoping she would explain Andrew's motivation for his resentment of his new wife. It was even more disconcerting when you met his parents. However, the lack of editing was a terrible distraction. Run on and incomplete sentences, switches in tense and point of view made it almost painful to read. I would have liked to have given it more stars, but feel it could have been so much better with good editing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Christmas devotional, December 13, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been using this book as a devotional through the Christmas season. Mr. Smith adds interesting historical tidbits about "Messiah" and its composer which are very interesting. But more than that, taking the individual parts of "Messiah" and then using the Bible to draw application is a wonderful idea! I have thoroughly enjoyed the message and will make this a Christmas tradition. Highly recommended. Oh, by the way, if you don't have a copy of "Messiah" you will definitely want one when you're through.
