Faithful! 1 octobre 2010

Compelling........

That is the one word I would use to describe this book. Honestly, this was not a "normal" read for me. Needless to say, life has drama, sorrow and heaviness so generally I tend to lean towards light and easy reading to balance it all out. This book, however, would not let me put it down. It compelled me along, beckoning to me to continue reading.

This driving story follows the (author enhanced) life of John Bunyan, writer of Pilgrim's Progress, and his second wife Elizabeth. This book was well researched and it's always amazing to read of different time periods and what those people had to endure. A greater appreciation for this family and the hardships and sacrifices they had lived through in order to survive was unimaginable. After reading this powerful portrayal, a deeper sense of purpose and conviction can not help to be felt in one's heart. I am so proud of Jody accomplishment and the obvious Inspiration behind this book's story.

The Preacher's Bride - The type of book I've been waiting for. 24 septembre 2010
Par KarenOf4 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I am always looking for a good book to invest my time in. I want to be sucked into it's world with no desire to put it down. More importantly, I want to finish it with a sense of closure and fulfillment. "The Preacher's Bride" was this type of book.

It was interesting to walk in Elizabeth's footsteps as she stood strong in her faith to follow what she felt the Lord wanted her to do. In the face of opposition and public gossip, she stood firm in following His will when it would have been easier not to. Such a wonderful example of a woman of faith. I felt her happiness as well as her sorrow while I learned about the Puritan struggles in 1600's England.

I finished this book with the sense of wanting to doing better, to be better in my own life. It easy to recommend this book to all my reading friends because I know they will enjoy it as much as I did. "The Preacher's Bride" is perfect for a church book/discussion group of any Christian faith.

Above all, we must protect the children 20 septembre 2010
Par Holly Weiss - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Preacher's Bride is a lovely read. The intriguing cover drew me in and as I read I was immediately transported and immersed in the day-to-day lives of the Puritans of 17th century England. Set in the framework of the rancor between English Royalist and the Puritans, the book's message is that enduring faith, children and family trump persecution. I was unable to put the book down until I learned the fates of John Costin, a tinker "called to mend souls not just kettles" and his housekeeper.

Elizabeth Whitbread, the heroine of this refreshing Christian historical romance, is a compassionate, persistent and perceptive young woman bent on protecting and nurturing the children of the recent widower. "My conscience before God will not allow me to stand idly by," says Elizabeth.

Author, Hedlund, particularly adept with dialogue, has the gift of swiftly moving her plot along. Her personal experience as a mother of five has evidently enabled her to delve easily into the fanciful, innocent world of children. Her young characters literally jumped off the page into my heart. Particularly impressive is the characterization of Mary, the blind eight-year-old, whose sixth sense is clairvoyant and prophetic.

The Preacher's Bride will keep you engaged. Highly recommended.

An awesome, intriguing page-turner 3 septembre 2011
Par Karen Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've read, and enjoyed, historical romance before. But, this is the first one I've encountered based on the Puritan way of life. I normally go for a good mystery or a crime drama with offbeat humor. Lately I've been indulging in young-adult paranormal. I'm also a big sic-fi fan and I throw in the occasional classic now and then. So, it would stand to reason that I might hold a small fear of this book turning out to be dull. I mean, come on... Puritans. How can that be engaging and romantic?

But, engaging and romantic it is. The book opens with a heart-wrenching scene that grabs the reader and the plot never lets go. You're immediately thrust into the lives of the main characters, John and Elizabeth, with a special peek into their hearts. Fear, worry, doubt and second-guessing. These topics of romance are always in season, Puritan or not. But, the Puritan part of the story is essential. It's the love of God that causes the steadfastness of conviction that leads to much of the story. It's an imbedded part of who the characters are and what makes them tick. But, you don't have to be religious or a believer to fully fall in love with the Puritan's of The Preacher's Bride and be wringing your hands or cheering with fulfilled hope depending on the page.

This novel is based on the real lives of John and Elizabeth Bunyan. Writer's license is taken with the romance of the couple, as well as creating personalities of the townspeople, while keeping most historical moments intact. John Bunyan wrote Pilgrim's Progress. A book I've never read, but I'm going to now.

So grab this one. Don't let it pass you by because you think it's all about religion. It's about people. Their hopes, dreams, fears and struggles. It's an awesome, intriguing page-turner for anyone regardless of your usual reading genre.

Very Disappointed On Many Levels 23 janvier 2012
Par nohippiechick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a Christian, I'm very happy for this author's success and hope she will grow in her story and character development. These were really lacking here. The writing is fine enough. What I found extremely disappointing is the fact that because it's fiction she could have made the characters more likable. It's a romance, I want to fall in love with the guy or at least like him. I couldn't like John Costin. He's a self-absorbed complete idiot. What kind of man thinks he doesn't need anyone's help when he's a widower with a newborn, a toddler and a blind child? That's not only prideful, it's stupid. He certainly wasn't thinking of his children. What's more, I don't want that man to be a leader in my church. I understand the author needed a plot device to get the heroine into his home so they could fall in love but this was not a good way. And don't get me started with his ridiculous line of thinking on not sleeping with his new wife making her life a living hell. The book kept telling me he was admirable without giving me anything of substance to think him admirable. And because it's supposed to be based on a historical figure, John Bunyan, this story taints one's view of the real man and does him an injustice.

Others have said that Elizabeth was TOO perfect. I would agree. I don't enjoy reading about super-spritual people. Fictional characters should be real people who struggle with weakness in a way that honors God. However, my biggest beef was that I absolutely hated that she was literally thrashed not just once but a number of times by the villain. It made no sense. A good girl, upstanding, church-going citizen get's beaten and it's like it's no big deal. Where's the outrage? I kept waiting for it. Where were the godly men in her life to protect her? What on earth were they thinking? It's poor story and character development when you have a love interest, a father, brothers-in-law and a fiance and although all of them wanted to have a say in her life, because after all, it's Puritan times, none of them could be bothered with making sure she was safe. Could not one of these bozos walk her home?

Which brings me to the villain. So one-dimensional. And what's worse, he does all these horrific things to decent people, to poor people, to anyone he pleases and he gets away with it every time. Supposedly because he's rich and his political party is coming up in power. It was frustrating and made no sense to me that after he whips the heroine or in another instance tries to murder her and innocent children burning them alive, no one tried to find him and once they did know who he was, no one bothered to accuse him. Lots of talk about taking a stance for the faith. What about taking a stance for justice or just filling holes in your story.
