Lose yourself in the history, opulence, and elegance of the Thousand Islands. Cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor are as close as sisters, but when their grandfather dies, the terms of his will just might destroy their bond. 

Seventeen-year-old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat-keeper. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how oppressive society can be … and that she may be trusting the wrong people. Dare she follow her heart and risk going against her family? What if she loses everything she’s ever known? It all comes down to one choice: What does Fanny Broadmoor want her legacy to be?

    " did not like this book. Will not recomend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 BonSue Brandvik | 2/18/2014

    " A Dog's Tale is a short story, told from a dog's perspective. It made me tear-up several times and it also gave me an even deeper respect for Mark Twain, who was so far ahead of his time. In very few pages, Twain created believable characters, situations and emotions, as seen through the eyes of a family dog, to develop a story that touched my heart and will not be forgotten. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Grendel | 2/15/2014

    " It was interesting - about the THousand Islands and even mentioned Brockville. Its book one in the series - Christian author not very inspiring on that side of things. An ok read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 2/7/2014

    " This was a typical Peterson-Miller story - a decent read for relaxing from a stressful day. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sasha | 2/7/2014

    " As a pet lover I found this story quite distressing amd definitely would not let little children read it. While I can see the point of the casual contempt with which we treat animals and the causual use, abuse and experimentation they are subjected to is still relevant (unfortunately)I hope that as a society we have moved forward form this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joann | 1/30/2014

    " It was neat reading about Rochester, NY and Clayton, NY back in the day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 1/17/2014

    " This books was pretty good. I really didn't like where it ended, though. But I guess the author really wants you to read the 2nd book in the series... which I'm reading now! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pattiwan | 1/9/2014

    " I started this book thinking that this story was a first in a series, but that it was a stand-alone. It is not. The trilogy is sequential and if you don't know that before hand, like me, you would be very disappointed by the ending of this book!! That being said, I thought it was a good start- there were lots of points of view, so that was confusing, but it was a good introduction to the second book, which I enjoyed the most. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Granny | 1/8/2014

    " Heartbreaking short story. I'm not a huge fan of Mark Twain, but found this dog story of interest. So sad that animals in general are treated with such disdain and callousness by the majority of people. Few have the courage to stand up for dogs who prove over and over again their loyalty to man even in the face of cruelty. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cristine | 1/5/2014

    " A nice quick read, great when you don't want to think too hard while you're reading. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 12/29/2013

    " Charming story told by the Dog! Witty and sweet it packs a punch at the end. Reminds us that human beings, with the gift of thinking and memory, can be a cruel animal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittany Herz | 12/28/2013

    " This a short story and a quick read. I really liked the idea of a book from a dog's perspective, but the book was not as cheery as I expected. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gordon Wilson | 12/22/2013

    " This was pretty interesting, a short story written from a dogs perspective. It was a quick and entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 12/13/2013

    " This was a really cute book. A cute little romance and easy read. It's the first of a series and really leaves you hanging. Now I have to wait for the next book to be released to continue the story. This book really shows you how greed has the potential to destroy families. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristi | 12/8/2013

    " A very sad story but a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank | 11/27/2013

    " All of Mark Twain's writings are good but I didn't like the ending of this one no matter what point he was trying to get across. I don't like sad endings. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric Moote | 11/26/2013

    " Overall: Being a dog person, I thought it was just ok. It is clear that Twain thought that dogs were a little less than I believe them to be. Other than that, it was a good story from a dog's perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clacie | 11/13/2013

    " My very first time reading Twain. This was definitely an impressive little book with a very important message. Thought provoking, and hopefully it did just that during the time it was first published. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 10/31/2013

    " I got this on audio and thought it was an enjoyable way to pass the time. The story was interesting, but the main character was annoyingly perfect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tu | 10/24/2013

    " i would hardly expect any easy breezy bit of feeling. It's Mark Twain's fable after all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arun | 9/20/2013

    " A very poignant story. Wonderfully written in the perspective of a faithful dog. Didn't see the end coming this way! Amazing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 9/2/2013

    " Loved the story line on this but was not as happy with how the ending left to many questions. I know this is a series but would have liked a little more settling of some of the things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 8/28/2013

    " A nice historical fiction book. I enjoyed the characters and hope to find the other two books in the series at the library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 7/28/2013

    " Fun, easy read. Ends with a lot of loose ends, so plan to read book #2 immediately after. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean | 7/25/2013

    " High society living in the late 1800's. Very typical plot of a high society girl following in love with a boy from the wrong side of the tracks. I didn't like the ending of the story. It left you hanging. You think you know what happened, but it isn't confirmed in writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 7/10/2013

    " Interesting to read about a bygone era where wealth held all the power. Strong women characters make us proud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruby | 4/25/2013

    " didn't expect the ending, though i pegged a certain character as an evil bastard off the bat :P look forward to book two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rhonda Walker | 3/27/2013

    " This was a free download on my Kindle. I did not realize it was a series. I enjoyed the book, but I am disappointed that there is no closure to the story in this book. If I had known it was a series, I probably would not have read the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathie | 3/10/2013

    " Good book. Not much of an ending. Must be a continuing story! "

    " This is a great story so far! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hans | 11/22/2011

    " A disturbing tale of the rewards for loyalty and love. Told from the point of view of a dog the story focuses on how the values of trust and loyalty passed onto offspring can leave them vulnerable and naive to the cruelties of curiosity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loretta | 6/29/2011

    " I downloaded a free version from an internet site. It was only 3 chapters so I am not sure I read the entire story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Flitterkit | 6/17/2011

    " Really annoying book. Well written and I liked the story, but the book isn't finished. Feels like 1/2 a book, nothing was resolved or finished in the storyline. I'd recommend this book once the next one comes out so no one else is as frustrated as I was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 4/12/2011

    " It began as a delightful story, then sadness crept in as the tale went along, then the end was horrible! I will never read it again. I understand Mark Twain was an advocate for the good treatment of animals. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 4/9/2011

    " LOVE this book but you MUST have the next two in the series before even picking this up! It's great when the "villian" is SO evil I can't read it any more but I HAVE to!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 2/11/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 11/27/2010

    " A moving and interesting story when applied to a dog. If one imagines a black slave in the dog's role, the story is illuminating, especially when you consider how humans feel today (and probably then as well) about their dogs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Parker Bailey | 10/28/2010

    " It had an interesting perspective on the thought process of dogs but yet was a sad story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bethany | 10/4/2010

    " This was definitely not a page turner, but was enjoyable. I really got sucked into the characters. It was perfect for reading in bed. A fun 'historical fiction' read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danica | 7/6/2010

    " I love Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller's style of writing. This is a great book and I am interested in seeing how this story develops in the next novel.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephanie | 2/11/2010

    " Christian romance taking place in Rochester and the Thousand Islands in the late 1800s. Seemed to capture the romance of the era and was a nice story of family betrayal and classless love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/5/2009

    " Easy read. Story moves kinda fast. Not much into about how God pulls them through their life situations. But like I said, it's an easy read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Darlene | 12/3/2009

    " Plot line to steal the inheritance from her by Uncle Jonas was extremely hokey. This novel had potential, but the unrealistic plot scheming made it a bit pathetic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deborah | 8/15/2009

    " Took me several attempts to finally read it through. Not much action, more one person plotting to control another person. Issues were not resolved. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maren | 7/28/2009

    " I was interested in the characters, however was very disappointed when the book ended on a to be continued note. It is the first in a series, but NONE of the conflict was resolved leaving me feeling like the trials for the heroin will never end. Debating on reading the others in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 7/8/2009

    " Loved the story line on this but was not as happy with how the ending left to many questions. I know this is a series but would have liked a little more settling of some of the things. "
