1878 Sophia and Hugh marry in Scotland. With Angus and Mary, Hugh's friend and employee, they all decide to immigrate to Canada; Hugh and Sophia to a city, Angus and Mary to "the bush", to a small community east of Prince Albert called Bliss.
On the ship both women give birth, but the unthinkable happens, and the lives of the two families are altered.
I have read so many fluffy mediocre romance, or Christian romance novels, that when a truly well written book comes along I'm blown away. Ms. Glover blew me away. Her writing is amazing. You can be reading along and all of a sudden you say to yourself, "Wait, what just happened?" Then re-reading it you think you MAY understand what was different about that, but still question your assumptions. Later in the story it comes together. Then of course, at the end, you have to go back to re-read those sections so you can see what really happened. I LOVE THAT! Things may not be as they seem.
The way in which Ms. Glover puts her story to paper is a true work of art. One not to be missed. This really shouldn't be considered a romance novel, if it is. This is a story of two very different families and what they mean to each other, bound together by one complicated, yet incredibly loving woman named Kezzie, eternal nursemaid to Hugh's family and mother to Mary.
More on this story would ruin it for you. Read this... You won't regret it.
I have no other books by Ms. Glover, but I certainly intend to research what else she's written.
I can't believe I finished it. It was that boring. It was that predictable. Seriously.
I guessed early on what was going to happen and it happened almost exactly as I guessed it. No surprising plot twists at all. I actually went as far as to skip pages because everytime Glover would get into the whole Jesus saves talk she'd go on and on and on. Serious overkill. Also, the fact that you couldn't tell it was a Christian based novel until about 100 pages in really bugged me, too. The plot takes a turn into a "who's saved, who's gonna be saved, who's not saved" and becomes a central theme. There's probably a little forshadowing, but nothing major. I felt duped into reading a preachy book.
If you're looking for a book about Saskatchewan or a good historical fiction book, then definitely skip this one. If you're looking for a quick Christian read, I'd probably bump it up to 2 stars. The plot is really thin and transparent, but most Christian books are (I have read a few). The characters aren't believable and you really don't care what happens to them. I just wanted it to be over so I could see if I guessed the entire plot.

I found this book a bit sluggish to get into the story line as the writer wrote a lot of historical images that seemed to me globbed together. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Peggy
