    This review was written for The Fence My Father Built.
    The story never took off. Boring characters. Jim, the pig had more life to him than these characters. The author was repetitive. I only got to chapter 11 and the author still hadn't got to the story just kept repeating the same thing over and over. Poor editing as well. A lot of discrepancies. After reading the word on page 84 I'm surprised CBD is selling this book.

    This was the first e-book I read when I received my new e-reader. I actually enjoyed it... The characters were believable and you gain to love them and there quirky lifestyle. There is a Christian influence that was influenced which I also enjoyed. It is rather predicable tho no real mystery you know who the villain and who the star is so no major twist turns or edge of your seat reading but never the less I enjoyed it was a nice easy read =)

    This review was written for The Fence My Father Built.
    Muri Pond is in the midst of a divorce from Chaz when she receives word of her father, Joseph Pond's, death and the issues surrounding her inherited property. The land she inherited consisted of a dilapidated trailer where her Aunt Lutie and Uncle Tiny live, where they cared for Joseph until he died, as well as a creek and the legal problems surrounding the creek (‘liquid gold'). She arrived with all belongings and her two children, Nova, 15, and Truman (Tru), 11. Attitudes clashed between mother and daughter the whole way out there and beyond!

    Lincoln Jackson (Linc) owns everything in and around Murkee except Joseph Pond's land and creek and Rubin Jonto's land, which Linc is pressuring to acquire. Everyone has acquiesced to Linc except Rubin and Joseph, and he now expects Muri to fold. But she is her father's daughter!

    Because of his drunkenness, Joseph had lost communication with Muri shortly after she turned three, when his wife left him and remarried. Linda's book, The Fence My Father Built, is the tender story of the struggling issues Muri has regarding her dad and finding his heart for her after so many years apart, the first through years of love for him and then eventual hatred. You go through the throes of love, anger, loss, rejection, and loneliness that a child, now an adult, has to reconcile with, along with the legal issues about the ranch thrown in. The story is told through the voice and heart of Muri, along with the voice and heart of her father through his journal. Definitely touches your heart.

    The struggles of the ranchers that need the ‘liquid gold,' the greed of one man who threatens to take that land through legal means, which appears to go beyond just the title to the creek, are aptly described for this dry, dusty country. The tension and animosity are palpable between the characters. However, Linda tosses in a sweet romance to take the edge off the ugly issues brewing.

    I loved the story for the rich history of the land, the personal reconciliation that Muri needed to work through, the touching story of the love of a father for his daughter, and the faith and truth that binds it all together. The ‘Fence" adds a delightful touch of character to the story. ‘Finding your way home' has a double meaning that everyone needs to find.

    This book was provided by Linda S. Clare in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.
