name of characters. Don't know if I will finish the book as it gets to be a little boring after a while.
I usually like the books by Smantha Price.
Lindie and Josiah are both wonderful characters. I feel as if I cannot write about them separately because, from almost the very beginning of this book, they are man and wife and are trying to find ways to make this two-become-one thing work. If I were to separate them, it would make all their work for naught somehow. Anyway, I really love the both of them. Lindie tries so, so hard to make Josiah happy and be the type of wife he wants and the mother Hannah needs, and that just shows how strong of a woman she is. And Josiah, my word, is one of the absolute sweetest men I have ever encountered. He constantly cares for Lindie, wants to make her happy, wants her to be able to find a place in his community and in his home, and I love him for it! Even though he claimed to want a marriage in name only, he never treats Lindie as if he doesn’t want her there, and that just shows how big his capacity to love is.
I really just love the progression of this story. It captivates you, makes you long to know what will happen, causes you to fall in love with all of the characters and with the thought of Lindie and Josiah having a love story after all; there is no end to the praises I could sing for this novel. However, I cannot say that I really loved the ending, except I definitely did, I just wish that the book would have gone on longer! There wasn’t anything wrong with the ending except that it was the end! All in all though, this is a fabulous novel that I thoroughly enjoyed, and I cannot wait to read the second book—A Woodland Miracle—next, and then A Dream of Miracles, the third book, once it comes out! I loved this novel, award it all five bookshelves, and highly recommend it! I’m pretty sure you’re gonna love it!
(This review is from my blog, spreadinghisgrace.blogspot.com)
The storyline was interesting - if not also rather unrealistic. Spoiler alert - it includes a mother being crushed by a tree that sends her deaf daughter into a coma and makes her almost autistic when she awakes; a husband who has cancer; miscarriages; rape; a pregnancy from that rape, a girl who lays hands on a dead deer and heals it, and on and on. There's so much death that is used to create drama, when a good writer can create drama from much less overly dramatic situations. What's more - none of these crazy dramatic situations is even fully developed. Josiah never really processes losing his wife, he just one day decides that he actually did fall in love again despite his vow not to. Lyndie never processes being raped (which is super traumatic). Hannah goes back and forth entered normal deaf girl and almost insane. And again, the list of underdeveloped storylines goes on and on.
I also felt like all of the medical talk was very inaccurate. I had a friend who went through treatment for lymphoma, and let's just say her treatment process was different in pretty much every way. In this book, the doctor treating the cancer in his office with a daily dose of chemo (and monitoring the chemo's effectiveness with daily blood draws...) is the same doctor who is acting as OB/gyn for the main character, oh, and all in exchange for some nice Amish furniture. Believable? Not so much.
I think the author could redevelop and rewrite this storyline to make it work, but as the book is, don't bother.
