I have to say this book was pretty amazing and it's only $0.99 right now for a whole lotta book! A Diary's House has everything. History, the paranormal, mystery - it was huge but it was fantastic. Like I said the book is big but good, the kind of book you cozy up next to the fire and lose yourself. Once I started it sucked me in and I had to know what happened next.

A Diary's House has a unique story line and I really enjoyed the Cherokee legends, that was a nice touch. I truly think this book has something for everyone!

When I read the synopsis of A DIARY’S HOUSE, I thought it was going to be a realistic story about the Cherokee Indians, their legends, and the people that knew them. Although there was a beautiful love story that wove its way throughout the novel, I was distracted by the hodgepodge of subplots involving ghosts, talking trees, pirates, revenge, and growing up, all of which came together at the end, the very end!
Most of the characters were not believable, especially the children who were the major characters. They were supposed to be 11 or 12 years old, I think, but they were much too mature for their age. They thought, behaved and spoke like adults in most of their incredible adventures, yet some of their actions and thoughts were very childlike. Annabelle, for example, referred to as a beautiful little girl, wanted a doll and to learn how to read, and Landon, a young boy, wanted to play in the mountains and ride his favorite horse, but both spoke of undying love for each other. I kept wondering how old are these children supposed to be?
Shelly, the grandmother, who had so much wisdom and so many secrets, was my favorite character. She most often embodied the beauty and truth of the novel.
The story was too long to hold my interest most of the time due to the redundancy of the descriptions and infinite details. Despite the many grammatical/typo errors that I didn’t believe were intentional to create colloquial color, the author has an exceptional sense for figurative language, especially imagery, but the reading becomes tedious when he “makes tales out of the smallest of events to broaden the story.” He is, however, a master storyteller.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. from Promotional Book Tours/

What a great book, in plays in the early 1900's in North Carolina.
It tells you about a boy called Landon and his family and friends. They are convinced that to proof they become man to do a very dangerous river trip. it is a wild river with a waterfall drop.
They do have help from a man building their float who appeared later to be a ghost. A insane priest is around and he is so weird and sort of funny in a way too.

You learn about Cherokee history and the trail of tears, when they make the dangerous trip over the river and the dump down the waterfall, they end up on a beautiful island that is clearly haunted at night, Landon finds a diary and reads about a little girl and her life story, how she felt in love with a Cherokee boy, a mutual love but her father did everything he had to do to keep her away from this boy.

The girls is closer to Landon then he thinks, when he finds out more and more he does everything in his power to make things right. A lot of people are after him to get the diary off him and he is in serious danger.

Landon finds a lovely girl when his dad gives the yearly day for the workers on his farm, you will find in this book, romance, adventure, paranormal , history and more, it is a great build up of characters and I honestly hope I will read more about them (hint to writer lol)

Historical novels are some of the most interesting ones for me to read. I love having a glimpse into life as it was in the past and A Diary's House was a fascinating read for that reason. A Diary's House is really so much more than a love story. The Native American legends included in the book were particularly interesting and when you added in mystery, ghosts, pirates and folklore, it definitely captured my interest. Don't expect to breeze through this book quickly, it's an in depth read but well worth it.

This book was a beautiful quilt of love, family, history and
legend, sewn together with the thread of a coming-of-age adventure. The
characters were engaging, and the diary wistfully evocative. The prose was
deep and insightful. The author winds together all these threads into an
engaging and sweet story. I reviewed this book as part of a promotional tour, and this is my honest review.

C. David incorporates Cherokee Legends within this captivating historical romance which impressed me. While "A Diary's House" is not a fast read, you will have a hard time putting it down. The characters and plot were well written with plenty of adventure.

This review is based on a complimentary copy which was provided for an honest review.

This book is based in late 19th century North Carolina and is filled with symbolism and imagery that reminded me slightly of the writing style in the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Although far outside the normal genre I read, C.David Murphy had no trouble holding my attention with well developed characters, a complex plot and he even threw in some mysticism and ghosts. I have long been a researcher of the Trail of Tears and the history of Native Americans ( I own a very large painting of Geronimo). The story behind the Diary drew me in, the diary's young owner wrote such an interesting tale of star crossed lovers, pretty much the age old story. Landon's journey to find riches puts him in the possession of the diary and it's more than just a coincidence. It's much closer to him that he even realized and it could play a part in his future. The two parts of the book are so intertwined that I can't quite write more, otherwise I could start giving away vital parts of the story. If you are a history buff, or even just a romance buff this book has a bit for everyone. Even this die-hard paranormal fan found herself wrapped up in it.

(I received this book as an ARC for review. Thoughts and opinions are my own. Positive review is not required.)
