Kindle version leaves something to be desired:
I bought the book to read on my Kindle. This is probably the first book I've ever bought through Amazon, in which I was disappointed in the formating. There are many, many typos throughout the book. Most seem to be "mis-reads" of the letters, more than spelling errors. It gets to be a little frustrating trying to figure out exactly what word should have been used. I know I could have requested my money back from Amazon, but I did READ the book, so I felt it would be wrong to ask for my money back. I did download "Book 2" in the series, "Nazareth's Song" and it appears to have a lot of the same problems - though it seems it may not have quite as many. I don't know what caused the problem with these books, but I hope it's not something we have to look forward to as more books become available for Kindle.
The next book was a bit harder for me to locate and find but I finally came across a copy after much searching (pre-finishing Nazareth's Song)and started into "Whisper Town" as hungry as I had ever been for the other three previous books......then I encountered a huge a problem.
Book number #4..."Earthly Vows"...was not released yet and I was "chomping at the bits" to get into that next book.
In my days of impatient waiting..I even wrote to Ms. Hickman and asked her to "please RUSH the release of Earthy Vows,"
I just had to see if Fern and Jeb finally get married.
I even pre-paid for this next book on Amazon and it still took longer than the expected release date for the book to be released.......but once it was I was thrilled!!!
Much to my joy and expectation..."Earthy Vows" did NOT disappoint me at all.
I only wish they had never ended...however sadly they have ended.
Now possibly if I could view the Millwood Hollow series on the big screen one day...that would be a dream fulfilled.
I deeply recommend this series of books for all ages. It is a heartwarming mix of history, character redemption, and over HAPPY endings to many hard situations.
These books by Ms. Hickman leave you smiling and feeling warm and fuzzy inside, and knowing that there is yet hope for mankind.
The trucker Jeb Nubey stops nearby and the kids sneak into his truck. When the law stops him, the children pretend to be his family. Already on the lam for an alleged attempted murder in Texarkana, Jeb takes the children to their adult sibling only to find her home deserted. Jeb soon pretends to be a widowed preacher raising the trio by himself. However, it is Angel who tries to turn this pretend quartet into a real family.
This is an entertaining historical fiction that paints a disturbing picture of the Depression via the treatment of the three Welby children by family and others. Still through the actions of Angel, forced into maturity beyond her years, hope exists even for this downtrodden group. The characters make the tale as the FALLEN ANGELS will hook readers with their plight.
and serving in two small churches I can totally relate to the statements Jeb makes to the congregants
when he says, "I'm a fraud." I think all us in ministry sometimes feel this way because we realize none
of us is ever worthy of the mercy and grace of GOD. The characters seemed to come to life right in front of me.
The kids fall for Jeb and he for them despite his gruff exterior and Angel's manipulations needless to
say I was hooked. I love happy endings, can't wait to read another book by Patricia Hickman.
I loved the humor in this book as Angel gives Jeb preaching lessons. I also liked the message that no matter how far you are away from God, anybody can be forgiven and anyone can turn his life around, like Jeb. And I liked how at the end, Jeb was willing to take full responsibility for his actions without offering excuses.
I was so excited to find out that this book is the first in a series. I look forward to finding out what happens between Jeb and Fern, if Jeb makes it as a real minister, what becomes of the Welby children, if they will be reunited with their parents and their sister Claudia, what happened to the Welby mother, and where Claudia disappeared to.
