    1. Rosaleen has escaped from a madman who believes he owns her. She was married off to a man six months ago and has lived on various steamboats since then. She really didn’t mind since her husband Donovan treated her well. But then one night she landed into a nightmare after Donovan was shot and killed during a card game by Bill McGurty. Bill took Rosaleen, forcing her into a degrading lifestyle of thievery and lies. She has become his plaything and feels as if she is all alone in the world. God [...]

    2. This is such a sweet (somewhat short) book. The first few chapters were great, it was great action, kept me interested. I thought characters were pretty good. I feel like a lot of times through the whole book it they would just happen to be eavesdropping on each other always at the worst time. They were both quick to judge about things as well. I felt like there should have been more communication with Rosaleen and Jacob, it seemed a good part of the book was of either them not trusting each oth [...]

    3. Sweet Forever was a good read - the writing wasn't that great, but the story was really good. I especially liked the message of the power of forgiveness and grace. It got a little frustrating how Jacob and Rosaleen's relationship was like a yo-yo. They had a lot of strife in their relationship just because of misinterpretations. If they would have just talked things out instead of jumping to conclusions, things would have been so much better.Overall, Sweet Forever was a nice, short read. It wasn [...]

    4. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that the hero and heroine constantly went back and forth not trusting each other. It got old. I mean - once or twice, I can understand. But over and over and over? Seemed like the author was just trying to fill in some more material to stretch out the length of the story. I would have liked her to fill in the pages some other ways. Otherwise, good read.

    5. This was a sweet Christian historical romance that was about working through wrongs done to you, accepting God's grace and mercy, and knowing that nothing can separate you from God's love. Although the topics addressed are sensitive, they were handled well, and there was nothing inappropriate or lewd.

    6. It was pretty good. I really liked the setting, the plot was ok, and the characters were just average. I didn't like how the minister, the guy she loves and loves her, doubted her change and then he goes off like I should just give up on preaching, woe is me, ect. OVerall it was ok this one just didn't quite "work" for me.
