    One thought on “A Love Woven True”

    1. It was a pretty good book. I only wish two of the characters would have returned at the end. It kinda left me hanging. I thought the time span between scenes were a bit long, too.

    2. I enjoyed the era the story is written in. The lesson to trust God in every circumstance was well laid out in several scenarios; tragedy, job security, misunderstanding to name a few to which any reader can relate.

    3. what a wonderful book that expresses the sorrow of the times of slavery and the progress of the underground railroad. Jasmine is moving on after the death of her husband Bradley and falling more in love with his brother Nolan. Nolan has been a great support with her growing son, spencer and with the business side of the shipping industry and horse farm Jasmine started with the help of her Irish friends, Paddy and his sister Kiara and her husband. Jasmine has endures more loss as she heads back t [...]

    4. Better than book 1 - definitely would have been hard to live during the slave era. Plantation owners treated them so poorly. Glad to know that Jasmine's family treated the slaves they owned better than most others did. When Naomi and Spencer get stolen, things got tense. Oliver was pretty crafty on how he got himself out of that mess. Sad that Naomi got sold back into slavery. Blacks were so looked down upon. Here Jasmine is trying to give Moses a good life and everyone around her is telling her [...]

    5. Jasmine Hudson regresa a la casa de su padre en el sur de Estados Unidos para visitar a su madre enferma y a su nana. Desde los primeros parrafos aprendemos que se casó con un hombre que no amaba, que apoya la abolicion de la esclavitud y su padre es esclavista. La trama regresa a estos puntos una y otra vez, y eso me aburrió en vez de capturar mi atención.

    6. I liked this book fine. I listened while I painted in my house. I didn't love the characters or the storyline. It was slow moving and the conflict was not that compelling. It was clean, but I'm not sure it is worth my time to listen to the next one.

    7. This book deals with Christian faith in the face of slavery just before the Civil War. I'd just read a book by Tracy Chevalier (The Last Runaway) about the same topic, and there were parts of that I liked better, and some of this was better

    8. Not my favorite book. I had a hard time staying awake reading it. Didn't get better until chapter 12. I just guessing that this book is just to help go into the next book.

    9. As always, wonderfulI am truly a!mazed as the authors take a difficult time in our history and turn it into a beautiful story.

    10. The 2nd in the "Lights of Lowell" Series, this tells of the next phase of Jasmines life, after Bradley is gonee gets on with life, keeping busy with what life brings daily
