Bekah Germano5 Stars Out Of 5December 9, 2005Bekah GermanoThis series was incredible. The characters were amazingly HUMAN. No one, at any time, came across as perfect, nor did the situations always work out perfectly, like any most other Christian fiction books. The story is heart-wrenching and pulls the reader in so much so that the melancholy mood of the book stays with you once you've put it down. I can't say enough about these books. Whenever anyone asks me for suggestions of Christian romance books to read, these are the first ones a I recommend. Thank you, Mrs. Higgs for the incredible journey.
Renee5 Stars Out Of 5August 31, 2005ReneeFinally, justice for Leana! (Sorry Rose) I really felt bad for Jamie whom, in the end, really loved both sisters. Whew! what a burden it was for him? I can't wait to see what the next book is like.
Beverly Olojan5 Stars Out Of 5August 8, 2005Beverly OlojanWhile on vacation this week I had a chance to read Whence Came a Prince by Liz Curtis Higgs. At the end of book 2, I wasn't sure I wanted to read book 3. My heart felt so battered after reading Fair is the Rose! Nevertheless, when I got my hands on book three, I decided to read it. So, now I've read the WHOLE thing--it's one THICK book!--and I was not disappointed. The book still took me on a roller coaster of emotion but in the end, I felt satisfied with the ending. If you've read the first two books, you know that the third just couldn't have a happily-ever after for everyone, but the ending did satisfy me, and I can truthfully say I'm glad I read the book. A few comments on the story itself--based on the Biblical story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah--Liz Curtis Higgs does a superb job of transporting this into anothing time and place. Honestly, this story would probably have not worked in an era other than the 1800's and most likely couldn't have worked without the customs of Scotland during that time period. The setting of this story is so rich and interwoven into the plot, it is like a fourth main character. This story the way Liz Curtis Higgs tells it, is made for this setting even as much as the setting is made for this story. Excellent!My only negative comment--which seems petty really--is that the character of Leanna seems too perfect at times. I saw much more growth in Rose and Jamie over the arc of the trilogy than I did of Leanna. Any flaws she does struggle with are very internal and kept from others so she appears very perfect in her reactions to difficult situations etc. I loved the growth of Rose and Jamie and felt it was very realistic. All in all, I would highly recommend this book but ONLY if you've read the first two! This is truly a story that does not stand alone. It needs the first two to place it
Suzanne Rodolico5 Stars Out Of 5May 23, 2005Suzanne RodolicoI love the whole series: Thorn In My Heart, Fair Is The Rose and Whence Came A Prince. Liz Curtis Higgs has an awesome way of following the Bible with these stories and making them so riveting...you can't put the book down! I can't wait to read more of her books.
