'I will definitely be reading more from this author' I Create Purty Thangsreviews The Last Letter by Kathleen Shoop"This is a beautiful story revolving around Jeanie and her daughter Katherine. As you begin to read, you think that it is going to be told from Katherine's point of view, and it is, to an extent. The main story though, is through Jeanie's eyes. She tells of their unexpected life in the year 1888, whereas Katherine is telling of the resulting consequences in the year 1905. The story is told back and forth, so you basically know the ending, but the way it is written, you have to read the entire story to find out how it got to that ending, and this author knows how to make you want to know every circumstance that got Katherine and Jeanie to that point in their relationship.Kathleen Shoop has a way of drawing you into the story. I wasn't just reading the story, I was living it alongside Jeanie. I felt every betrayal and horror that she felt. Ms. Shoop gave such vivid descriptions that you couldn't help but feel you were seeing it all pass like watching a movie, and I really did see the movie in my mind as I read. Once started, I could not put the book down until I finished it. I connected with this story more than I care to admit. I give very few ratings of 5, but this one earned it because there wasn't anything about this book that I didn't like. I will definitely be reading more from this author."See more here-http://icreatepurtythangs.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/the-last-letter-bo...
A Father’s DeceitA Husband’s BetrayalA Loved One’s DeathA Mother’s ChoiceA Daughter’s ResentmentA Time to ForgiveFor every daughter who thinks she knows her mother’s story…Katherine wouldn’t have believed it if she hadn’t found the last letter…Katherine Arthur’s dying mother arrives on her doorstep, forcing her to relive a past she wanted to forget. When Katherine was young, the Arthur family had been affluent city dwellers until shame sent them running for the prairie, into the unknown. Taking her family, including young Katherine, to live off the land was the last thing Jeanie Arthur had wanted, but she would do her best to make a go of it. For Jeanie’s husband Frank it had been a world of opportunity. Dreaming, lazy Frank. But, it was a society of uncertainty — a domain of natural disasters, temptation, hatred, even death.Ten-year-old Katherine had loved her mother fiercely, put her trust in her completely, but when there was no other choice, and Jeanie resorted to extreme measures on the prairie to save her family, she tore Katherine’s world apart. Now, seventeen years later, Katherine has found the truth — she has discovered the last letter. After years of anger, can Katherine find it in her heart to understand why her mother made the decisions that changed them all? Can she forgive and finally begin to heal before it’s too late?

The Well of Wyrding by Author Travis Simmons reviewed by A Day in the Tangled Skeins of My Life
(The Revenant Wyrd Saga #3)"I always expect great things from The Revenant Wyrd Saga books, and I was not disappointed in this one. Book 3 picks up where book 2 left off and it was pretty easy to get back into the imaginative, descriptive story that Travis Simmons has created. I will admit that on occasion I was confused and had to go back and figure out something, but it only interrupted the flow slightly.As usual, all the characters are well written, the world is beautifully described and easy to imagine, and the tension is enough to keep you on the edge of your seats at times, reading eagerly to find out what will happen next. This book seems darker to me than the first two, more action and more chaos. I kept finding myself trying to think ahead to what might happen and was always surprised, whether I was right or wrong in my guesses.I look forward to each of the books in the series and am glad that I have the opportunity to review them. I recommend these books to anyone that enjoys a great fantasy with many layers to the story. I would suggest reading from the first book, as they would be too confusing to just jump into without reading them in order."Read more on the whole saga here......http://mytangledskeinsbookreviews.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/the-well-o...
