I will not disclose a lot of details about the plot of this book but I have to say, all that I had learned while growing up between a man and his weaknesses are once again proven in this book. I also came to discover that there are just some people who are unfortunate all their lives even though their families or their friends would try and try to better them through the course of time. I felt like crying while reading this book because such perfection did not have to crumble in such a way. I commend the author, Jamie Lisa Forbes for her storytelling skills. The book was a masterpiece according to my standards. The setting was just beautiful and intriguing for me who has never been to a ranch before. The whole of the book was free of spelling and punctuation errors. I could hug this book if I had to because of all that.
If you are curious about the ranch life and want to delve in that world for a time, then this book is definitely what you are looking for. If you have no experience with the ranch life and have doubts about this book, I assure you, you are in for a treat. I had approached this book with reluctance when it was assigned to me but when I was done with the first chapter I was hooked! It was fast-paced for me maybe it’s because I love familial, saga stories that include suspense, drama, romance, and a bit of Christianity in it. Get it because it will keep you up all night hoping for the best outcome for such a dear set of characters. This book gets a well-deserved 5 stars from me!
An unflinching, raw and wonderfully written novel, that stirs up so many emotions. I struggle to believe that 'Unbroken' could really be a debut novel by Jamie Lisa Forbes. It was so convincing and flowed like any great novel does. I couldn't help but be invested in the characters and their lives, and empathized with so many of their struggles. Quite incredible.
What redeems this otherwise bleak novel, in which it is winter nearly always in some unknown year, is the beautiful and skilled writing of Ms. Forbes. I enjoyed the pace of the novel and found the whole thing just so gosh darn different from anything I have ever read that I looked forward to opening the book each day.
I hope Ms. Forbes next novel focuses a little more on character development and less on the weather and cattle. I'd love another novel with the same characters ... I know they are cool people and would love to get to know them better.
