    1. (Sorry about my english. its not my first language)The story, the character, everything is too simple. It's just silly. I gave it 2 stars because it was also easy to read and i did so in one go.Some examples that let me shake my head:There are a lot of things that were just too convenient to be plausible. She suspects her parents were murdered because of 10 acres that her Father and the Senator were arguing over. When she is searching for evidence she finds the mines in just one day. Even if the [...]

    2. I can read just about anything, but I feel like I am ploughing thru this book with the speed of a turtle & the enjoyment of a toothache:( it does not feel historical 1896. It is a very strange book, a dead woman is being portrayed as a saint in an almost creepy obsessive way by her family. while another woman is trying to pass herself off as man, & I can't believe it as I'm reading it so why would the other characters believe it? I will finish the book because I always do but I will have [...]

    3. This book was not a typical Ruth Ann Norton book. I guess it was to be a Christian fiction book, because when she wanted someone to have a change of heart she just said: "They found Christ!" Who knew Christ was lost and needed found?! I found it a very annoying book for being called a 'historical' novel. This author needs to do her research if she wants to write 'historical' and 'Christian' books. The storyline was so farfetched I couldn't believe it. A lot of silliest going on with a lot of so [...]

    6. I haven't read a lot of Christian fiction. That said, I really enjoyed this book.

She gets on a train without looking back and ends up in North Dakota, disquised as a man name Billy Ingram. She finds work on a farm quite a distant from town and that is where her problems really start. The owner of the farm, Chad Walker, has his hands full with his dead wife's family [...]

    7. This is the first book in Ms Nordin's Virginia series. A well written Christian romance. The characters are believable and likable. It is funny, romantic, a clever plot twist, and suspenseful with the heroine, Kate, witnessing the murders of her parents in Virginia and running to hide in rural North Dakota. A delightful book, one I'll continue to read many times.

    10. A VERY GOOD STORYA good story with a lot of twists and turns Good for the woman who was always dressed downfor the problems that would have been fatal if she opposed themA good story. LCR

    11. Kate is running for her life and Chad is hiding from his. After disguising herself as "Billy" and hiring on at Chad's ranch, Kate may have finally met the man of her dreams but how will she ever let Chad know when all he sees is "Billy". Lots of old fashioned fun in this great book.

    12. I bought this book after buying and reading other stories by Ms. Nordin. While the book was good with some suspense, humor, romance and tears, I was highly annoyed by the constant 'finding god and Christianity' bend. I am re-reading it a second time to make sure I'm not imagining it.

    13. After witnessing a horrible crime, Kate ends up as Billy and a farmhand for a small town Dakota rancher. Throw in a manipulating late wife and crazy in-laws and you have a complicated set of events that lead to a happy ending.

    14. I always find an author I really enjoy reading there books then I read one and it really spoils it for me. This is the book that broke the camels back for me just not as good as her other books. :-(

    15. Really good book. Shows how trying to be someone other then yourself is really hard, proving being yourself is the best way to go.

    16. Another great read.e author does such an amazing job giving the characters a life all their own that they just leap off the pages!

    17. What a great story!!! The book excelled in the humourous parts. Couldnt stop laughing. It is a first-rate and top-notch book!!

    18. Poorly writtenThis book moved very slowly and was very poorly written. It was worth just what I paid for it. Nice story line just lacked substance.
