This author has a really good feel for characters and motivation. The basic story is problematical; (SPOILER ALERT) It's straining credulity to believe that a deaf man's family could remain ignorant of his disability for twenty years, chalking it up to being "slow in the head" instead. That said, the author does such a beautiful job of telling this romance - telling it back and forth from the different points of view of the two main characters - and doing such a lovely, sensitive job with it - that you tend to forgive the sensibility lapses, and the few anachronistic words and remarks
Second Story: "She Came By Train" by Janet Syas Nitsick:
Not worth the electrons it's written with. It starts with the classic romance novel setup, governess is hired (by mail order?) to tend to the two children of a lonely, heartsore widower: then it descends into a series of banalities, one after another, snowballing into a mindless jumble of poor character development, vapid dialogue, weak motivation, and anachronistic words, phrases and attitudes... One stupid little thing that irritated me no end - the man from Nebraska says "pretty", while the man from Virginia says "purdy" and "you sure are the purdiest thing". Aaaaaaaargh!!! A small thing, I know, but so pointless in that it was the only word the Virginian spoke in "dialect". Amateurism at its worst.
Bottom line: I'll be checking out other stories by Ruth Ann Nordin; I will avoiding everything by Janet Syas Nitsick
The second one would have been better if Opal hadn't whined so much and tried too hard to make Nebraska fit her way of life. The children were the best part. They were well written and I liked their antics.
All in all a good book. I would read more by these authors.
The second half of the book was by an author I have never read before, and I liked that part of the book as well, but it didn't have as much connection to the characters as the first half of the book had. I just didn't fall in love with them the way I did the first set. Its still well worth the read, and if you have never read Ruth Ann Nordin before, go and pick up any one of her books. You'll love them!!!
