this is a new author for me and one i was very pleased with. once i started to read this book and her other 2 in the series i was hooked. i could not stop reading til i finished them all and they were very well written, captivating and enjoyable. i look forward to reading more by this author.
This book turned out to be quite an enjoyable read. This was one of the few books that I've read in recent months that brings out God and the way that He works in our lives to change our hearts and make us more like Christ in a very prominent way. When Molly's husband suddenly dies, she and her children are torn from their home and she is faced with leaving behind the only other adult person she cares about. I truly enjoyed the way her story ran from tragedy and defeat to just trying to survive to learning how to rely on God day to day. There were a couple of twists that I thought played out nicely through out the plot and a couple of things that didn't work so well, but honestly those were very minor and didn't interfere with the overall story at all.
I loved this book - it had everything to offer - faith after loss in particular. Molly loses her husband, her childhood companion and helpmate, her younger son, and the loss of vision in one eye of her oldest son - and her faith never wavers. But through all of this, she brings another life into the world, a new baby daughter. She finds a home of their
own, meets a fascinating Indian woman who gives her a priceless gift and so much more. Molly is a talent on the loom and the reader gets an education in the art of weaving. All in all, a GREAT read.
It was a great story of survival, but very boring for me. I wasn't overly impressed. The writing techniques were great, but the story was very lulled. It didn't grab my attention. I loved the love story part of it , but overal a book if i had read first would not have bought.
