    1. One of the best books I ve read this summerere s a lot of depth to it and it was fascinating all the way through with a lot of unexpected plot twists Reviews compare it to The Help and The Secret Lives of Bees It does have similar tones to both of those great reads, but can certainly hold its own I highly recommend it


    2. Jon saw this book was recommended on the Reformed Readers group and thought I d like it He was right There were some really great themes of forgiveness, sacrifice and redemption in this book.


    3. This book was a wonderful coming of age book I loved the main character, she had a lot of sadness to deal with in her young life, loss, death, betrayal It was all there Excellent.


    4. Just what does an oriental girl doing a ballet leap have to do with a story about a NC Irish step dancer Nothing This is a great book it deserves a better cover I am a sucker for coming of age books about hard life lessons moving a child into adulthood this book has a twist in which the kid IS the adult and her parents are the ones who need the hard life lessons to grow up Most authors go from one extreme to another either parents are the Waltons and Cleavers or else drunken abusive monsters Thi [...]


    5. Loved this book and will be downloading from Patricia Hickman It was well written and the story was nicely developed I was hooked from the beginning.Just when I thought I had the plot figured out, she threw in twists and turns I laughed and cried Great story I grabbed this book when it was free at the recommendation of another great author However, had I paid for it, I would be just as happy A few minor editorial issues, but not many To defend the cover, she dyes her hair in the story However, [...]


    6. I liked this book I will admit that I like a lot dialogue between the characters and less of the main characters thinking, and it was slow at first But after several chapters I got hooked I loved the main character, Flannery, and getting inside her brain made it interesting There was a lot going on in this book, and several things really took me by surprise Flannery and her sister, Siobhan were young dancers, and her stepmother had huge plans for them but not all of our plans come out the way w [...]


    7. I love the sunflower garden You will have to read the book to find out about the treasure it holds Families are messy and even the ones that seem put together just right have their share of secrets and scandals The Curry family has a load of secrets What I liked best about this book was how it rang true It was not trite or contrived The characters became real to me I laughed and cried and cared about what happened to them The author kept me on my toes wondering what would happen on the next page [...]


    8. Amazing I had not read any books by this author before, and as it was a free Kindle download I was not expecting much, but this book was absolutely fantastic Vividly written, emotional, but not ever cheesy or overdramatic I simply cannot rave enough about it It s Christian Fiction, but by far some of the best that I have read, not cheesy or simplistic It s not preachy The plot will surprise you The characters are real and colorful and flawed I highly recommend.


    9. I read Tiny Dancers two years ago and the characters have stayed with me Patricia Hickman s writing transports the reader in time From the moment I met the High Stepping Curry Sisters on stage, I was hooked Hickman delivers thought provoking content with humor and heart Share this with book with your friends and family An absorbing read.


    10. The fifth book in the Baker family saga, Banner of Love, tells how Alice s little sister, Linda, gets involved in the American Civil War Linda falls in love with a man on the wrong side and discovers all the issues she is dealing with grow dim beside real love and true freedom.


    11. This book randomly caught my eye on the library bookshelfyou can see why by the title It was a great read I love it when the protagonist of a novel rises above her birthright and is optimistic, despite her challenges Truly inspiring.


    12. I took a few attempts at reading this book n finally did It s a sad story in many ways n told through the eyes of Flannery where a season ended and another began in her young life.






    13. I really liked the historical setting and how our protagonist was able to mature despite her huge heart bearing so much grief.
