I took this series with me on a 3 month training course. It was a good decision! This series was a great opportunity for me to forget the stress of my day and unwind. The characters are so real and you start to feel that you truly know them, I celebrated with them and cried with them. I hope that the series continues as I was very sad to finish the third book and know I did not have another book to start. I read this series way to quickly, I sometimes stayed up to late because I lost track of time. If you enjoy history and would like to see the world through the eyes of one of our ancestors I highly recommend that you read this series.
In this book we are introduced to Jacob and the ups and downs he faces in rural Canada around the turn of the 20th century. Hewitt keeps the action coming and you will be holding your breath as you wait to see the next challenge that faces Jacob. Filled with rich characters and Christian values this book is a must read!
This first book in the Abbington Pickets Series is such a great read! The author grabs your attention within the first few pages, and it’s a page turner til the end. The characters and setting are depicted so I felt as though I was right there. This is a feel-good Historical Christian love story that won’t disappoint!
I just finished reading "Jacob of Abbington Pickets". Once I started I couldn't put it down. It made me laugh, it made me cry, made me think and made me angry. It was wonderful to lose myself in former times. I can't wait to read "Jacob's Place" to see what is next in Jacob's life.
The picture the author painted in this storyline took me back to a simpler, slower paced time. It was an easy read and I had a very difficult time putting it down! I cannot wait to purchase others from this series.
This book draws you into the heart of Jacob’s life. This historical fiction places you in the midst of a prairie setting among people you want to know and connect with. I couldn’t put this book down and when I was done wanted to read the next book in the series.It is captivating.
This book grabs you right from the first page. Jacob is a very believable character that we can all identify with. As we follow him through all that life throws at him we share his joys and sorrows. This is book is a wonderful story and the author his captured the era and cultural challenges that the people of that time experienced. I am eagerly waiting for the sequel to this wonderful story. It is a must read book.
This book was beyond amazing, sequel please? Even though the story does not take place in our time, it is highly relatable. It teaches us that hardships come and go and even though we feel we need to find out why, we must always keep out faith. This novel made me cry more than once, yet made me smile a thousand times more. You really begin to feel as if you are there with the characters. I will be telling all of my friends and family to read this book. No matter what you have gone through or are going through you will be able to relate to at least one aspect of this story and take something positive from it; i definitely did.
Loved every page I read in this book! Once I started reading I could have finished in one day! I just couldn't put it down, however, I savored every moment and took my time reading and falling in love with the characters. Jacob was a true gentleman who had his fair share of tragedies but always looked to God for faith and good will.....a trait that is encouraging and uplifting especially living in today's society. I recommend this book to all type if readers.
