Jan 30, Deanne Patterson rated it really liked it Recommended to Deanne by: cnnamongirl aol. Shelves: netgalleybooks-i-ownstreet-teamnetgalley-feb I really enjoy reading time-split novels and discovering how the connection is made between the time periods.
While this one is mostly focused on modern times and Taylor's story I did make a connection with Taylor. She gets a chance to be a part of her best friend, Victoria Bennett's family and she dare not mess it up. The women spend much time together as best friends and as aspiring author's take summer classes at Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House.
Pushing aside her insecurity Taylor is starti I really enjoy reading time-split novels and discovering how the connection is made between the time periods. Pushing aside her insecurity Taylor is starting to come into her own until the ultimate betrayal happens. It's very evident the author has researched this time period. A beautiful story about grace and finding your place in life,compassion allowing others in,betrayal,coming to grips with it,redemption and forgiveness.
Growth,maturity and love round it out.
The plot was amazing and well rounded,I loved the descriptions feeling as though I were right there with the characters. Expected publication: February 9th by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc I received a complimentary copy of this book.
Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own. Feb 22, Jocelyn Green rated it it was amazing Shelves: christian-fictiontime-slip.
I was hooked from the first until the last with The Orchard House. The relationships between sisters Taylor and Victoria, and friends Louisa and Johanna, not to mention the men in their lives, were nuanced, complex, completely believable, and painfully realistic.
Up until this novel, the work I've read from Heidi Chiavaroli has used the Revolutionary War as the historical half of the novels' timelines, with all the drama and action and intrigue such a war provides. The Orchard House offers something new with its historical context being post-Civil War, and its content surrounding a friendship involving one of our literary greats, Louisa May Alcott.
Chiavaroli proves her ability to plumb the depths of human drama whether the conflicts are external or internal. No matter her subject matter, her books are full of heart, history, and hope. Jun 30, Missy rated it really liked it Shelves: e-readerchristian-fiction-read.
Confession: I have never read Little Women. Although I have seen several versions of the movie the and versions are my favorite. I know little about Louisa May Alcott other than the basics. Louisa and Johanna meet through the rough times of the Civil War and the admiration Louisa had for Johanna's brother, John. Though Louisa cannot tell Johanna what to do in life, she is the constant that Johanna needs for advise, sistership, and strength. Whereas Taylor and Victoria start as friends, Taylor is adopted into the family. They have the opposite relationship until many years later when both are struggling in finding what it is they really need.
They all need that friend to tell them it is going to be alright, you just need to follow the path HE has put you on, and that in the end a "sister's" love is all that matters. I enjoyed this read very much. Now I need to go out and find a copy of Little Women!! This is my second book by this author and again I did enjoy it, though I found the book, The Tea Chesta bit stronger. Though both the modern day and historical stories was interesting, with characters going through a lot of difficulties and lessons to learn, I did found I enjoyed the story of Joanna past storyline a lot more interesting and strong.
She really did go through a lot, having dreams, having to delay some dreams and let go of others. I enjoyed the reconciliation story of th This is my second book by this author and again I did enjoy it, though I found the book, The Tea Chesta bit stronger.
I enjoyed the reconciliation story of the modern day. It is always good to see families growing closer and stronger. I'm liking this author, and would definitely of her works as reading time allows. The audiobook was entertaining. Feb 18, Liz Tolsma rated it it was amazing.
And then throw in Heidi Chiavaroli as the author, and it's a sure winner. I wasn't disappointed at all. Loved it. The characters are so well drawn. I felt like I was in Concord. I felt like I was living this story. And the dual timelines merged together so beautifully. Yes, I even cried at the end. It was a fabulous book. May 21, Kellyn Roth marked it as did-not-finish.
I don't know if it's time-slip or just the general vibe of the story or the "mystical when it's not really mystical" vibe Suffice to say, this novel didn't work out for me, and I decided to discontinue its acquaintance after giving it what I consider to be a good try. That said, my opinion should not really be regarded since I probably didn't give it enough of a chance! The Orchard House is another shining example of how Heidi Chiavaroli excels at split-time narratives.
Some books make you stop and catch your breath with the emotional punch they pack. This book was like that for me - compelling and hard to put down. It's always a journey for the reader to see how the modern day storyline connects with the historical one. Alcott is special to our modern day character, Taylor, an The Orchard House is another shining example of how Heidi Chiavaroli excels at split-time narratives.Women wants real sex Orchard Homes
