The author crafted a rich setting filled it with a diverse cast of characters. The one constant in this novel is Colette. This is her story, and when we glimpse her future in the prologue, we know her life is going to be painful- we just don't know which path she travels to get there. The twist and turns her story takes before she hits rock bottom kept me guessing throughout the book.
While this book is about relationships, it is not your typical romance. The man who ultimately turns out to Colette's hero is separated from her for about 90% of the story. That was a little tough to take for a romance nut like myself.
However, if you like long, rich, historical books with a romance thread running through but not driving the story (think Gone with the Wind, only not so long), this is the perfect book for you.
If you're a fan of historical romance with an emphasis on historical, you'll love The Green Veil as much as I did.
The prologue was so intriguing that if none of the other reasons had existed for me to love the book, I would have kept reading just to find out how poor Collette got herself in such a predicament--not to mention how she was going to get herself out. A good writer knows just how to hook a reader, and Naomi did it with her prologue. Well done, Naomi! I'll be buying anything else you write.
Colette Palmer and Manason Kade grew up together as childhood friends in Michigan, and Colette always hoped he'd be the one. He's her first true love, but when her family relocates to Wisconsin they lose track of one another. She waits years in hopes he'll became a lumber cruiser in Wisconsin, so they'll be reunited. Year after year unravels, and she has to build a new life. She meets Joseph, and he gives her a yellow dog she names Dandy, a beautiful, fancy blue shawl, and proposes, but she holds him at arm's length and says he's her best friend.
She finds herself proposed to by two different men and finally says yes to the second proposal out of compassion. When this man makes a difficult husband and tells her she can't keep her dog, she turns to Joseph for help. Her first love reappears, and she's faced with a difficult decision when he offers refuge. Will she honor her marriage vows? Her heart is torn. Problems surmount and obstacles larger than the woods of Wisconsin rear their ugly heads.
This Christian Fiction novel is layered with rich details realistic to life, and the author provides rich description of beautiful wood scenes, but in a way that enrich the story without detracting from it. I find the plot original, the theme worthy, and I didn't want to put this novel down until I found out what happened to Colette and Manason in the end. Boggs, a lumberman hired by Collette's husband, is a mean man who'll stop at nothing to get what he wants, and Collette has a face-off with him as well. I loved the part the dog played in it.Read more ›
The book follows the life of a young lumberman's daughter named Colette Palmer as her family move into the Wisconsin territory. She must leave her best friends behind, among them a special boy she calls Nase. We watch Colette grow and mature, finding new friends and purpose in her new home and even contemplating courtship and marriage. All the while, though, she still secretly clings to her first love. Then disaster strikes and she must make a choice.
The book takes place over the span of at least eleven or twelve years; the story line is complex and involves many intriguing characters. I can't go into much more detail without spoiling it, but let me assure you it is well worth each and every page. It also seemed very well researched, but was never dry. I highly recommend this book to all readers who like historical romance - and even to those that aren't sure they like it. They just might become fans.
