Homespun Bride

Jillian Hart

Montana Territory in 1883 was a dangerous place-especially for a blind woman struggling to make her way through an early winter snowstorm. Undaunted, Noelle Kramer fought to remain independent. But then a runaway horse nearly plunged her into a rushing, ice-choked river, before a stranger's strong, sure hand saved her from certain death. And yet this was no stranger.
Though she could not know it, her rescuer was rancher Thad McKaslin, the man who had once loved her more than life itself. Losing her had shaken all his most deeply held beliefs. Now he wondered if the return of this strong woman was a sign that somehow he could find his way home.

My Take:  
Homespun Bride wasn't bad.  The main character, Noelle, was a strong an inspiring woman, and her man, Thad, was a great character as well.  Honestly, though, not a lot happened in the book, there was a lot of pondering and inner questioning, which is important for a well developed character, but at some point, SOMETHING needs to happen.  I felt like their wasn't' quite enough drama for the end to be totally fulfilling.  In my day to day life, I hate drama, but when I read a romance, I want utter heartbreak, sadness, overwhelming joy, total euphoria, you know what I mean?  Drama.  This book had two lovable, yet mellow people coming together.  Homespun Bride is nice for a rainy day, but don't expect it to change your life in any way, shape, or form.  I am giving this a rating of a 4, Borrow from a Friend.

Do you agree with my review?  Do you think I'm totally off base?  Either way I'd love to hear from you, be sure to leave a comment and tell me how you feel.

If this book were a movie it would likely be rated G, totally clean, nothing offensive.

Your rating system is counter intuitive coz I first read it as 4 on 5 :)

I guess you could see my rating system is counter intuitive if you are looking at it that way, but the way I see it, 1 should always be the best. After all, when a soccer team wins, they don't shout: we're number 5! We're number 5! It's all about being number 1! Hence, number 1 being the best on my rating system. Enjoy!
