My mother was probably lighting incense in his office, hanging crystals, or reciting dark, dramatic, obscure poetry by some writer only English professors had heard of. Maybe my brother was giving her some sort of amateur legal advice. No one else was going to come along and pay the price the broker was offering. After coming into contact with townspeople when she arrives, Heather discovers that the one year she lived in Moses Lake during her senior year in high school has left wounds that have followed her into adulthood. But her first major project leaves the ambitious architect no choice.
Now that both of my great uncles were in their eighties, the family farmland and businesses had to go. I hated my father for subjecting me to such a hideous reality. Yes 2 of 2 people found this review helpful Like a bad Danielle Steele novel To engage in this book, one would have to disengage their commonsense. She never wanted to spend time there when I was a kid. Yet, somehow, I was just then noticing. Maybe I just felt the need to be girly and cute, so as not to send him scurrying, like the interns.
I should never have brought him into this. During their time together, Hazel confesses her long-held secret. I was expecting more of a sequel from the first book. In reality, the numbers and I were on intimate terms. It dragged in some spots, and finally picked up toward the end and came to an action-packed ending. I have never read such I can not say enough good things about Lisa Wingate's ability to write.
A trip to drag her back,would not be easy, when you consider the twisted family ties. I will keep reading her stories. Thanks, Lisa, for another great read. She is described as a very accurate architect but then erratic, demanding, and at times ridiculous. Dieses Buch habe ich mir in meiner Buchhandlung gekauft, weil ich christliche Romane liebe. When a broker deal comes up offering to buy the Texas land where she spent her childhood, still owned by her family, she can't wait to get her mother's signature on the dotted line.
If her writing wasn't so notably beautiful, it would be easy to forget you were even reading. Listeners won't be disappointed with this beautiful and exciting story read by a gifted narrator. Ready to tear her hair out, she gives up and heads for the airport. I felt super connected to Heather, whether is was during a time when she was super frustrated over her family, or giddy over Blaine said highschool crush. Very happy not only to have read it but to keep it so I can read it again in a year or two. No one knew about the Texas project except Mel, Richard, and the commercial broker who was quietly shopping for land he would then resell to Proxica for their new facilities.
I slid it out and glanced while everyone was watching virtual customers move through checkout lanes. Getting down to the last few days for the contract to be signed, her mother and brother still not having signed the papers, she decides to return to Moses Lake to push the sale and find out what's going on. But by the end of the first day, she is forced to board an Israeli jetliner in spite of a bomb threat and watches helplessly as a kind, fatherly gentleman she befriended on the plane dies in her arms. Niemand will ihr erzählen warum der Landverkauf noch nicht zustande gekommen ist. Von der ersten Seite an fesselte mich der lockere, witzige und flotte Schreibstil der Autorin sehr.
She reconnects with Ruth, the Mennonite woman who took care of their household when she was a child. Your mother is down there with them, apparently. Thanks for being so nice about it. Normal men tended to see me as slightly work-obsessed and hyperfocused. Would he really do that? I would happily recommend this author and her books to any reader.
It was raining outside again, typical for Seattle. Spending the holiday in an ex-funeral parlor seems like a nightmare, but Heather slowly finds herself being drawn into the area's history, hope, and heart. This was predictable and cliche. The author tries to build up suspense by keeping Heather and the reader from the truth about the sale of the property. I heard the ladies on the other side, whispering amongst themselves. I would never have let anyone see that but Trish.
Ein sehr lesenswerter Roman, denn man nicht einfach schnell durchlesen sollte. She and my grandmother hated each other. I liked the first in the series but Blue Moon was a disappointment. No point filling them with the warm fuzzies. Strange things happen when communities find out that a company with deep pockets is sniffing around. I love the wit sprinkled througho Lisa Wingate has taken the mess that often makes up families, mixed in misunderstandings and complicated relationships and bits of humour, and birthed a moving story of hope and reconciliation and new beginnings.
