More filters. Sort order. I have mixed feelings about this book. The beginning was intriguing and I was immediately drawn to the main character and her world. I loved that it began in NYC and enjoyed the historical references. The early characters had depth and the plot was very rich. The characters were not as believable as they had been in the beginning and some of the cameo characters were unnecessary.

Seriously, it's almost as if two different people partook in the writing of this book; one very amazing writer and one not so much. At times there were characters that were introduced in such an odd manner that I didn't know who the heck they were. Also, there was one line in the book that was so confusing that I re-read it three times before I figured out that it must be an old saying.
I then looked it up and I was correct. It's so sad that it just fell off. The ending sucked, unless she writes another book that picks up where this one left off, then I guess it wouldn't be so bad. I know that the ending was suppose to be profound, but the writing was so weak that it didn't have that effect, instead it felt unfinished. View 2 comments. I was initially drawn to this novel because it started off with the story of a young girl who wanted to venture westward on her own to follow after the man she loved.
And parts of the novel were enjoyable. For instance, the main character, Aislynn, did have the independent mind and quick mouth that I love so much in women and young girls.

However, I soon found that although she was quite an educated lass, she seemed overly naive and ignorant at times.

I had quite a few problems with the authorship. And all of us who read cheaper books on the Kindle know that the conversion text is often not flawless. For instance, in the beginning of the text, the individual named Brendan is supposed to be Aislynn's father. However, he is not introduced as such, at least not for a long while, if at all. I remained believing that Brendan and Aislynn's father were 2 separate characters for a long time.
Finally, the last problem I had with this book is that the author expects the audience to know certain facts that aren't presented in the novel and that aren't within reason for the audience to know. And who were these Ivanhoe and Rowena characters? Having looked up the story of Ivanhoe, I now understand the reference——the speaker of this quote is trying to tell Aislynn not to lie in wait for a man who does not love her but instead loves someone else.
But I was left stunned and confused at the time I read this sentence. I puzzled over this sentence for many a minute. Had I missed something in the text? No, I hadn't. Very bad form. Like many other reviews, I enjoyed the first half of the book and found it to be very promising - however, by the middle and end I was tired of it and wishing the author had spent more time with it. Also, it began, for me, to strongly resemble Gone with the Wind.
Of course Tim is Ashley, the weak Emma who we never meet is Melanie and I guess that leaves Johnny as a combo of Frank and Ch Like many other reviews, I enjoyed the first half of the book and found it to be very promising - however, by the middle and end I was tired of it and wishing the author had spent more time with it.

This book had potential up until the story ends right in the middle of the story line! Did the author just get tired of writing? Did the computer die? Did she get distracted by a screaming child and lost her train of thought? There has never been less of a conclusion or resolution to book. The imagery was great.

The characters were ok. It's not even an ending It's a period with nothing after it! Unless there is a 2nd book, this was a real disappointment. Far Away Home by Susan Denning 2. Kept with it to the end. Not worth it.

The main character is do dependant on the people around her. Although she was written to be intelligent and sassy her dependence on pleasing all the men in her life just made her read as weak. It takes half the book for her to realize she doesn't love a character who is in love with someone else. Yes, you know I love a main character that pines for a man that is in love with someone else. Why do women write women to be so pathetic.
It only rates a two because it did make me cry and I did actually make it to the end of the book. However I wish I hadn't because the ending is horrible. This is the type of book that you don't realize just how much you hate it until the moment you finish it. It was decent enough at the beginning to make me feel it worth sticking with. But there are moments and characters that are unforgivably ridiculous and offensive. The portrayal of the Native American, and the description of the protagonist's encounter with him really offended me.
The preachy, absurd way in which the author depicts race relations, etc. And the ending, oh the ending. I don't want to use foul language, so I'll end my review the same way the book ends. Actually, I take it back. I've just noticed that this is listed as an "American Historical Novel.
Great story, horrible ending! Really leaves you hanging with no closure. Jan 08, India rated it it was amazing.
With Johnny at her side she braves the frontier and makes an epic journey across the wilderness but at sixteen she quickly realises that she has a lot to learn. This coming of age novel has all my favourite subjects intertwined within a story that is both beautifully romantic and horribly sad. Aislynn is a strong female lead in a time when women were not appreciated for their strength.
Dec 16, Pamela rated it it was amazing. This story starts out in with a 16 year old girl named Aislynn who is left to take care of herself in New York when her Dad dies. She was going to live with her neighbor and his sons but the priest at her church put a stop to that saying it wouldn't be proper. There is a good friend named Johnny who wants to marry her but she is not interested in him.
