Hello! Welcome back to Life of Heritage Corner! Today I have a lovely story to share with you from an Indie published author that I have come to enjoy! If you like history, family trees, and westerns, then I have a story for you! Let’s dive in!
About the Book ||
Who holds the key to Woodbreak's hidden past? When Ryan and Robin decide to search out the history of their family's ranch, their quest leads them to an old box filled with curious artifacts. Who was the mysterious Anna? What brought her west? And what connection does she have to the strange name carved into the log? A peek into Anna's diary reveals a few answers but even more questions. Is there anyone who can show them the truth of Woodbreak?
About the Author ||
Rebekah A. Morris has lived her entire life (as of now) in Missouri. Being home educated during her school years was great, except for writing. That was the worst subject (along with math) that she had to do. It wasn't until after she graduated that she discovered the joys and wonder of writing. Now she can't write enough. After spending six years in research and writing, she completed her first book, "Home Fires of the Great War," a 500+ page, historical fiction about home life in the United States and Canada during the First World War. Since then, she has been an avid writer and always has more than one story going on at once because only one story at a time got tiring and dull.
My Review ||
This book was so sweet! I instantly fell in love with the characters, Anna and Eddy, mainly. The story was written in modern-day with diary excerpts from 1872 sprinkled throughout. This is the backstory to the series, so it actually didn’t have a powerful western flare to it. But it had enough to make me want to read book 1 as soon as I can! The book is 5 chapters long and can be read in about half an hour, a nice quick read! Suitable for all ages. Please note there is mention of an accident that injures a character, and *spoiler* kills three people *end of spoiler*, but there are no details given that would be upsetting to sensitive readers. It describes the lasting effects it has on the one injured, and that’s it! And even though the story was quite short, I mourned for the characters and already felt a connection to them. And the aspect of why God allows trials in our life was very well presented. Highly recommended for all ages.
*I received a complimentary copy of Woodbreak from the author for promotional purposes. I was not required to write a positive review, and all thoughts are my own. *
That's all for now! Have a Blessed Day!
