CT ReaderNortheastAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great story!April 17, 2012CT ReaderNortheastAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This was one of the best books I've ever read! The characters were intriguing and the story line was wonderful. I don't think I've ever read a book set in this time period before and was wonderfully surprised at how much I enjoyed it. This book was hard to put down. Especially of interest was the Loyalist family in the story. The story showed this particular family as individuals you grew to love and how they were treated at the hands of the Patriots after the war. A great read!
Christine LindsayBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Fast-paced, romantic delightFebruary 26, 2012Christine LindsayBritish Columbia, CanadaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'll admit I am a huge fan of Roseanna White's novels. And in her latest book, Love Finds You in Annapolis, I am treated once again to characters with emotional and spiritual depth, and believable plot twists that keep me entranced.
I thoroughly enjoy how the hero of the story, Emerson, is a truly human character. The man has faults!!!! At the beginning of the story he is treating the heroine of the story, his fiancÃ© Lark, with a callousness that makes me want to smack him. Yet White manages to make Emerson attractive and likeable even before he begins to learn what he really needs to learn. It takes a gifted literary hand to do that.
Same thing with White's female lead, Larkâ€”what a heroine!! Lark is also a believable human character that suits the era in which she lives, but also a woman I can relate to in this century. Lark is being neglected and mistreated, and yet has the gumption to stand up for herself in ending her engagement to Emerson.
I highly recommend this story to readers of Christian romance between the ages 12 to 96. As a lover of history I was delightfully educated while watching the character development during the era of General Washington. White did this educating with a light touch. And it was such great fun to watch Emerson work like mad to try to win back the hand of Lark.
Roseanna White's writing style is fast-paced. Yet within a few aptly chosen words she is able to convey the deepest of human emotions. Bravo once again to Roseanna White and her growing list of wonderful books.
MaryLu TyndallSan Jose, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Simply Delightful!December 22, 2011MaryLu TyndallSan Jose, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a lover of the colonial time period as well as the city of Annapolis, which I have visited often, I was excited to pick up Ms. White's latest novel. But after only a few chapters, I have to say that I was completely absorbed in both the time period and the characters! Not typical for someone like me who is not only an author herself, but who has read a gazillion historical romances! Ms. White has a wonderful way with language that makes it seem like you are gliding across the pages as one would skate effortlessly over ice. Her characters are charming and interesting. The heroine is someone every woman can relate to, and you'll meet other characters who will invoke your anger one minute and your affection the next. I love the history in Annapolis right after the Revolutionary War and Ms. White injects it beautifully within the story without making it seem like a history lesson. I must admit, this was one book which I adored every minute of and which I anxiously waited until I could pick it up again and immerse myself in the romance and adventure.
