    One thought on “Thrown to the Wolves”

    1. Two reviews in a row where I wish I could say better things. Most of the book takes place in the forest. And it plodded throughout most of it. I think the author got the ages of the children mixed up. Rebecah was 18 and acted so juvenile it was pathetic. The little 5 year old boy had quite a vocabulary as well as skills for his age. The middle girl was either her age or acts much older. Then you'd turn the page to read she was childish. At times it was a toss up whether it was she or her older s [...]

    2. I won't give this a star rating because I stopped reading about 20% in. I loved the relationship between the sisters, but the storyline was VERY repetitive. I took to skimming more than reading before I finally quit altogether because of this. I know sometimes in real life we often go over the same thoughts in our head for several days, but in a book it's just irritating. The relationship between the main character telling the story (it's in first person) and the guy who wants to court her is ju [...]

    3. Excellent book ,exciting to the endExcellent book ,exciting to the endAnother great read. The children were lost in the woods.If you love a good Amish book this one is for you. I could not put it down ,they encountered many wolves and were lost 3 days while the Amish community searched, but the one person that was not expedited showed on second day . Find out why when they were almost killed ,one of the sisters was not so happy. to see him. This is such an exciting book. it can be a stand alone [...]

    4. I wanted to give this book more stars but there were a few problems. Firstly, there were some typos. Not too many but enough to jump out and throw me off the reading of the book. Secondly, there was a lot of repetition. I think the book needed one final editorial go over to strike some of the repeated (almost verbatim!) sentences. That aside, I really liked the development of the characters. I got a bit bored when they were initially lost in the woods though, it seemed to stretch on for agggges. [...]

    5. CAPTIVATINGI loved this book! I read late into the night because I couldn't put it down. The resourcefulness of the children (especially the 5 year old) was interesting and the fear they had believable. I'm not acquainted with any Amish people, but enjoy reading about them, and recommend this book. I will be reading the other books in the series soon.

    6. Quick east read - Rebekah has eyes on Michael esch but he has eyes on another, meanwhile Daniel Stoltzus has eyes on Rebekah and she has no time for him. When Rebekah and her siblings are lost in the woods they are faced with many obstacles including food, water and wolves. Finally located by Daniel, he and Rebekah are able to come to terms with their past.

    7. Rebekah did not like Daniel at all because of something he had done many years earlier. When she, her sister and brother got lost in the woods for days, they started to lose hope. Then Daniel comes to their rescue. The outcome shows how being judgemental can keep a person from happiness.

    8. This was a better story than many Amish stories. The characters were richer and fuller and the love story was sweet. This author took the time to deepen the story. I liked it well enough that I am halfway through the 2nd book in the series!!

    9. I really didn't know what to expect with the title, but I was pleasantly surprised. This book kept me up all night so I could find out what happens and then started the second before going to be. I love the family in the book.

    10. I just could not get into this book at all. The characters were whiney and the script was so repetitive. Made it to 25% and then gave up.

    11. This wasn't a great book. It kind of dragged and was predictable. I got this free for my Kindle so I read it, but I wouldn't buy anymore in the series.

    12. Wonderfulenjoyed the characters, the adventures these people endure. story flowed well and kept you involved. learned a lot about the Amish way of life.

    13. I returned it for a refund. So poorly written I couldn't stamd it after the first few chapters. Stilted conversation, inrealistic characters and a silly plot.

    14. ReallyThe title was a bit deceptive, as the story wasn't at all what I expected. But the story was worth the reading.

    15. Very good.Very well written, good read hard to put down , good plot,adventure,romance,humor,and suspense all in one! I will read more books written by Holly for sure.
