5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Wonderful Read! 18 de octubre de 2012
Por Charity U - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
Wow, did I ever enjoy this book! I've never read any books before about life in a women's prison in the 1800s in Nebraska, and I'm guessing you haven't either. This was an enlightening read! While some "enlightening" books can be quite boring, this one was riveting. I'm making it sound like an interesting text book, but it's nowhere close to a textbook. It's a delightful historical fiction type of book. I really enjoyed getting to know each of the main women: Mamie, Jane, and Ellen. They each had a very different role in the book - one was in prison, one was the female ... guard/supervisor/boss, and one was the prison warden's wife. All of their stories were neatly melded into the one book. It was clear how each woman's faith in God grew, though "The Key on the Quilt" wasn't a preachy book at all. I highly recommend that you read this wonderful Christian fiction! And I can't wait to read the next book, The Shadow on the Quilt (The Quilt Chronicles).

Por Shondra - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
The first in the Quilt Chronicles series, The Key on the Quilt is a fascinating read. Not always one to read historical fiction, I did love the time period this book was set in, 1876.

Jane's story is spellbinding from the beginning. From the onset of the incident, to the long awaited outcome, her story is ever gripping. I seemed to go through an array of emotions with her, from that of sympathy, to that of sheer enjoyment.

Mamie's story was a bit different, I wasn't sure what to think from the start. I assumed she was an uneducated worker, one that few people would have contact with. However, Mamie's strong, quiet presence was one the others would look too, often depending on, in hard times.

And then there was Ellen, whom I guessed to be a spoiled weakling, never coming through for anyone. Little did I know the story she would tell throughout the book!

At times I found myself skipping through paragraphs, not out of boredom, but looking for answers that were yet to come. I ended up enjoying this book more than I thought I would, and cannot wait for book 2! Unfortunately, it will not be released until Spring 2013.

I give this book 4 stars!

**I was given this book free from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.**

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Injustices are Fought in a Nebraska Prison 24 de mayo de 2012
Por Faye - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Tapa blanda
Injustices are fought in a Nebraska prison.

Jane Prescott is a woman sentenced to ten years for man slaughter, but while in jail she forms friendships and longs for the day when she will see her daughter again. Max Zimmer is the man who has never doubted Jane's innocence and will do anything to set her free.
Three women are brought together under usual situations, and face unexpected obstacles.

A jail is definitely an interesting setting for a novel, if I do say so myself. Since I've been a long time Stephanie Grace Whitson fan, I knew I had to give it a try and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were well developed and there was plenty of action, with escape attempts and more.

I especially liked the character of Jane because of how throughout the book she really came out of her shell and she was complex character who had many layers, and it was wonderful to see them fall away. And of course Max was quite the gallant hero, and he fought admirably for Jane. I think out of the other side characters I really liked Mamie Dawson, who was a sort of mothering figure to the ladies.

Overall, I would say that this is an excellent read, and I loved the freshness of the setting. This book moved along steadily, at a good pace, and I really liked how much action this book surprised me with :) This is a book that I would definitely recommend. Thanks!

I received this as an ebook from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Thank you!

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A Unique Story that Captures the History-Lover 26 de abril de 2012
Por Holly Renee - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
The Key on the Quilt is a unique novel that is certain to capture the history lover. Stephanie Grace Whitson has taken a unique step in Christian fiction and ventured beyond the realms of the typical story-line found in the historical genre as she explores prison life among females.

This novel introduces the reader to three protagonists. Each of these protagonists struggle with something different. One is an actual prisoner, the other is the matron, the other is the warden's wife. These protagonists have the potential to reach a variety of readers, as one may be able to identify with a certain protagonist more than the others due to their life's circumstances.

This novel does an excellent job of showing readers the essence and heart of Jesus--which is to reach those who are broken and hurting. What better place than a prison? I love how this novel delves into a Christianity that the modern church is slowly forgetting about. It's wonderful to see the direction this story takes.

Another great part of the novel is the symbolism at the end. It's one of those "wow" moments that leaves readers reaching for the nearest tissue.

The only problem I have with this novel is the amount of back-story and explanation. It seemed to slow the story down. I would have loved to have seen it worked in rather than explained. At some portions, the back-story was very appropriate. At other times it felt un-necessary.

I definitly recommend every history lover give The Key on the Quilt a try. It's so far from the ordinary story, that one can't help but find themselves pleasantly surprised by this novel.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Barbour Publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
