I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.

A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written Boar War Historical Fiction book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Boar War fictional movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

Thank you for the free author; Lawson books; Amazon Digital Services LLC; book

I love the romantic angle, so fascinating and creative with the infusion of history. The two main characters of the book are well portrayed, I could not help but to ensure I read to the very last page. What an Intriguing, thought-provoking story.

Geoff Lawson has created a very readable romantic fiction set in colonial NZ. His historical facts are, for me, his greatest strength. Set in NZ around the time of the Boer War we get an insight into NZ society. The main characters are strongly portrayed & give a good insight into the struggles of the time, plus room for romance. I enjoyed the book. Easy to read & delightful. I recommend a look.

Its so nice to read well written works that embrace our own country. In this case even our own Provincial area. Forgiven also give s and interesting insight into the Boer war and is an intrical part of a fascinating love story. Its an easy and very enjoyable read. I read it over a week and enjoyed it immensely.

I found this to be a very satisfying read - an interesting plot that includes history, and the drama of life.
