Full of fantasy and the author's imaginings, but throughout the book is laced true history. This book hooked me to try to read all of Ms. Chadwick's books from now on.

I have read some of Ms Coopey's books before and really enjoyed them. But this one wasn't up to her other books. I can't say exactly why, but it was not as enjoyable.

This book held my attention and was an interesting story about the pioneer days in the western US. I plan to read more by this author.

It may be my fault for thinking it was another story, but the entire book had to do with a church and what goes on inside. When I thought the story would begin, it just continued in the same thread. I think I misunderstood what it was supposed to be about?

I have lived near this river for 20 years and had no idea what had gone on regarding the use of the water. I am still reading this book and am appalled by the changes that were allowed to be made to this river all for the sake of one company. Read it, see if you agree.

I owned another reader which was slow, confusing and hard to use... this one is just what I needed. Gave the old one to my husband.

But I don't understand why it did not come with my Kindle. To have to purchase it separately was a bit annoying, but it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars House at Riverton by Kate Morton, May 17 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is Ms. Morton's second book I read and even though it took me a long time to get "hooked" by it, as I did in Forgotten Garden, by the end I was truly hooked on her stories.

This one made me feel sad at the end and the end was a surprise to me. Beyond that it was once again a riveting story. A young girl works as a house maid in the house at Riverton and the story spans years of her memories from that time. The reader learns the old unspoken rule that in all houses of wealth, whatever is seen or heard is never ever spoken of to anyone. She has the privilege of working in the house with the owners, so through the years family experiences become secrets to be kept to oneself. Those are the rules of the house and for us as modern readers this can be frustrating to read about, but I knew why she kept secrets that should have been told.

Through the teenaged years, years of war, experiences that become secrets, the author moves the reader through to an ending that surprised me. I didn't see it coming.

I guess I have to read this one again... good thing I own all three of her books, Forgotten Garden, House at Riverton, and the Distant Hours.

I am now her biggest fan!
