    " I was so excited to read this because it is set near where I grew up. It was such a disappointment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 12/14/2013

    " I just could not get into this book like I did with "Icy Sparks". I found it dull. Some of the characters just annoyed me to no end. I couldn't even finish the book... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 11/29/2013

    " Not particularly memorable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sally | 11/26/2013

    " This book was good but took me much longer than most books to get through. It did not move fast, but told a good story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen McRae | 10/22/2013

    " This book had a good storyline behind it but the writing wasn't consistent.It would grab your interest then lose it . I think it kept dropping the storyline so it was difficult to keep focused .It did have a glimpse into societal values in that time period. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bobbie | 10/2/2012

    " I couldn't finish this one.....twice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roseanne | 10/24/2011

    " This was an interesting book. . .the writing is great, but I'm still undecided about whether I liked the story or not. It was definitely a compelling read. I found it difficult to pull myself away. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 5/31/2011

    " Post Civil War southern Georgia, turpentine farming, and "a family rocked by illness, addiction and bitter rivalry". The past lays its imprint across generations. Beautiful depiction of nature's beauty and a slice of Southern life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela Pickering | 3/20/2011

    " It's been a while since I've read this book so I'm doubtful my review will be very helpful. I can say that I usually remember quite a bit about the books I read and this one seems to not be memorable. Not a good thing but it is not standing out as one I intensely disliked either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 11/24/2010

    " Gwyn Rubio's tale is gripping in it's depiction of a family caught in the throws of syphilis. The effects of the deadly nightmarish disease creates terror both thrilling and in the end heroic. A great read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krista | 3/31/2010

    " Blah. Really wanted to give it 2.5 stars...I didn't feel any connection with the characters, and had to force myself to keep reading. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lori | 12/28/2009

    " I couldn't even make it through two chapters before I gave up on it. I found it bogged down in uninteresting details and I thought the characters were boring too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Halterman | 10/3/2009

    " I really liked this book. I think have discovered that a like to read historical fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Luanne | 9/25/2009

    " I wasn't ever quite sure where this book was going, but it kept my interest enough to want to keep reading, to find out! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Isabelle | 4/29/2009

    " So boring. I was hoping it would be more like Gone with the Wind. No such luck. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catherine | 4/24/2007

    " I randomly picked this up at the library, thought it would be an interesting time period to read about, but it was so boring I finally gave up. I hate to not finish books, but I couldn't even make it halfway through. I haven't disliked a book this much in a long time. "
