Apr 06, Erin rated it liked it Shelves: christian-fiction. This book was better than the first in a lot of ways, and I was able to identify with the characters right away. Alexander did hit on one of my pet peeves which was having the characters antagonize each other in a mean-spirited way for most of the book.
I don't like experiencing arguments in real life or in novels. Her writing style also leaves little to the imagination; she will imply a feeling through a character's action and then spend the next paragraph describing that emotion in detail This book was better than the first in a lot of ways, and I was able to identify with the characters right away. Her writing style also leaves little to the imagination; she will imply a feeling through a character's action and then spend the next paragraph describing that emotion in detail.
I found that somewhat insulting to the readers and a waste of my reading time. That said, the scenes where the characters were able to come to understand the backgrounds of the other were extremely well-done. The transformations were believable and heart-breaking. The emphasis on forgiveness was woven seamlessly into the story and was processed in a very natural way, not overdone at all. I give her credit for the improvements and hope to find that the trend will have continued the next time I pick up one of her titles.
Sep 09, Hannah rated it really liked it Shelves: outread-aubrey , western-theme , owned-books. I read this last fall and never reviewed it. Recently I got my own copy and realized that I hadn't I'm so bad about that! I loved the quest that the two unlikely companions embarked on, and how Matthew Taylor had to face a lot of issues from his past to fully become the man he'd been portrayed as capable of being in the first book.
Annabelle, recently widowed, has the stains of her past to overcome. Both of them are unlikely candidates for true love's strike, but it might just happen Mar 28, Jennifer Taylor rated it really liked it. Description Annabelle Grayson has been given a second chance at life, but she can't claim it with the cloud of her past hanging over her in Willow Springs. After her husband dies, she advertises for a trail guide to accompany her to land waiting for her in Idaho--and a most unlikely candidate applies for the job.

Meeting Annabelle Grayson the first time was unpleasant enough, but when she crosses his path again, her presence in his life--and what she reveals--is devastating.
Review This is the second book in the Chronicles of Fountain Creek series, and the sequel to Rekindled. First, I'd like to say that it's rare I read a sequel and enjoy it even better than the first book, if I loved the first book, and I loved Rekindled. With that said, I'd like to state that Revealed is even better.
While it isn't necessary to read these books in order to understand the plot, it will give you an appreciation to see how far these characters have evolved from one book to the next. They are all introduced in the first book and the author has given them such life as second characters that you want to know more about them and discover their individual stories. In Revealed, Matthew is so determined to think the worst of Annabelle. He judges her by society's standards and doesn't see her through the eyes of God, overlooking God's salvation and redemption.
One of the reasons Annabelle is so intriguing is that she has a mixture of God's humbleness without losing her individual spirit. She's great with witty comebacks and the tension of their banter is compelling, making the reader eager to see how Matthew will next react. The internal conflict of this story is so strong that it can almost carry the book without an external conflict, although both are present. The plot, the characters' behaviors, and dialogue is believable.
The flavor for the historical time period is authentic and pulls you into the story, allowing to the reader to get lost in time and enjoy a great read. On a scale of one to five, I give this book five stars. There isn't anything I would change. All my questions were answered, and the ending very satisfying. I would highly recommend this book, in fact, the whole series. I'm eager to read the third book that is now out, Remembered. Sep 14, Sarah rated it really liked it Shelves: library-book , reads.
I have to admit, I didn't like this as much as the first book because of the situation that the author put the guy and girl in, but the book was very good. I really felt it should have been longer to show the slow development of their relationship better. Strong writing, good message, and surprisingly clean for some of the subject matter. Well, I finally finished off this series, albeit out of order. I believe I liked this one the most. Well, I was furious with Matthew through most of this book.
What a pompous, pious piece of work! And one who is supposed to be a man of faith. He was judgmental without finding out the truth.

He believed something to be true about the woman who married his brother, and no matter what defenses of Annabelle's character ma Well, I finally finished off this series, albeit out of order. He believed something to be true about the woman who married his brother, and no matter what defenses of Annabelle's character many kind, loving Christians shared with him, he disregarded them all and refused to see her as anything other than a loose-moraled gold digger, deserving of nothing. He was horrible. And Annabelle took it. Oh, she gave him what-for once, but then she allowed God to curb her tongue and be considerate toward her angry brother-in-law.
She was such an example of a woman of God, despite her sordid past. She faced her flaws, her sin, and knew she was forgiven and given grace. But he ran from his consequences of prior troubles. I did not reduce my star rating because of that character. That storyline of Matthew's flawed thinking was what made up much of the book's conflict and plot. I gave the book 4 stars because it dragged out too long. But it was still good.
Wonderful faith issues and lessons. I am glad I finally read this. Aug 14, Joelle rated it it was amazing. This was an endearing story from the beginning to the end. The characters pain is this story was so apparent. Forced into prostitution at the age of twelve as her parents and family died on the trail she found a way to escape after fifteen years in captivity. A man who had a heart of gold bought her and took her away from that life and made her a wife and a mother. But,shortly after being married her husband passes on of a heart condition and once again left alone to fend for herself and child.
Her This was an endearing story from the beginning to the end. Her husband has provided her with a home in Idaho which he planned to take her take her but never got the chance. She must forge her way to Idaho by hiring a guide to take her. Once the ad was placed she received a couple of man who applied for the job but, there is a surprise to find out that one of the applicants was her husband estranged brother who hates her and who had a falling out with her husband.
Making the decision to hire Matthew to take her is a gamble. Matthew has a past that he is running from and so is his brothers wife both hoping to put it behind them as the reach Idaho. Matthew needs to love and forgive and Annabelle needs to forgive herself for past sins as they we not her fault they both find things out about each other along the trail that lets each other into the other heart and you see a healing of two wounded souls come alive between the pages and develop a slow but budding romance that makes you heart go awe and rooting from them to find a way to become a family after all Loved it and looking forward to others in the series as well.
Mar 29, Lori rated it liked it Shelves: chick-lit , historical-fiction , christian-fiction. I enjoyed the symbolism of the Atonement through out this one. How often do we try to do things, whether it is to pay for a sin or suffer through a trial, alone. The natural man makes us think that we can do it all. I appreciated the glimpse though these characters eyes that showed there are things in life that are bigger than we are. This edition changes from Kathryn and Larson's story to Annabelle I enjoyed the symbolism of the Atonement through out this one. This edition changes from Kathryn and Larson's story to Annabelle and Matthew's story.
Annabelle is trying to get to Boise Idaho and Pastor Carlson has put an ad out to hire a hand to accompany her. It is a long journey but the longer part was just in getting out of town. I don't know if it was because this is a "Fountain Creek Chronicles" book that Alexander felt she had to have half the book take place there or what. Once on the trail - I really enjoyed the adventure and change that these two experienced. While I was glad to see Matthew change the Matthew with attitude was so different from the Matthew in the first book , the change was a little unbelievable.
Again, Alexander took half the book creating the tension between Matthew and Annabelle and then in one event he was suddenly different. Even as the Atonement changes our own lives and heart - it is a more gradual process than what was depicted in this book. If you like pioneer, christian literature this is worth the time to read - just hang in there until they get on the trail.
