Terrific. The best yet, since Eagles Wings. Mrs Snelling outdid herself in this tragic tale of the Civil War. Miss Jesselynn turns Marse Jesse, and keeps her promise to her father. You'll be enthralled on this breaktaking journey of a young woman's quest to lead her Thoroughbreds to safety!

They are fantastic..I hung on every situation, actually feeling like I was living out the life they did. A very gifted author. Having many ancestors who came from Norway and settled in the Red River Valley, I felt History come alive. Thank you Lorraine Snelling!

Lauraine Snelling has once again impressed me with one of her books. A fabulous story of a girl who shows courage to rescue her family's horses from the Civil War. Great start to a new series.

The book stopped. There is no end. 28. Dezember 2013
Von L. Christensen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This has been on my Kindle for a while and I didn't bother to read the most recent reviews. Had I known it would have such a dreadful ending, I would have passed.

Until the end, I found it a captivating story. The characters were realistic, it had great Civil War depictions and the heroine was a decent person and could stand on her own two feet. Some of the parts I found a little unbelievable or predictable, but nothing crazy.

Then I got to the end. Oh, wait. There was no ending. The book stopped. Two things that drive me to not read an author again are ridiculous grammar/spelling issues and forcing a reader to get another book to finish a story. I enjoy series books but don't want to have to purchase another book to know how the story ends. Individual books should be stand alone or at least it should be clearly indicated you have to buy subsequent books in the series to see how things end.

a Civil War adventure 8. Juli 2000
Von Beverly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Having thorougly enjoyed Snelling's Red River of the North series, I couldn't wait to read Daughter of Twin Oaks. In this book, the setting is a thoroughbred horse farm in Kentucky in the midst of the Civil War. Jesselyn's father and brothers are away in battle and she sends her younger sisters away to an aunt's home for safety. After her father comes home to die from his battle wounds, she realizes that she needs to get her horses away from Kentucky if she will have anything left to start over with after the war. Taking her little brother and her few now-freed slaves with her, they embark on a perilous journey where danger and adventure await them on every corner. A devout Christian, Jesselyn finds that her faith gradually slips away as they encounter pitfall after pitfall. By the end of the book, she has quit praying altogether and is blaming God for the war. Meanwhile, her sisters in Richmond find love and happiness with soldiers that they meet and reunite with their long-lost brother, now wounded from battle. Unlike Jesselyn, they retain their faith in God, even when Louisa's soldier is declared missing and probably dead. This book was good and kept me reading, and I want to read the second one because so many loose ends were left. Will Jesselyn ever get all of them to safety? Will she ever give her heart back to God? Will Louisa's true love return? Will Twin Oaks still remain when they get back home? Anyone who enjoys historical Christian fiction will like this book.

One of the best books I've read in a long time! 3. November 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I'm usually disappointed in a lot of books, since usually the story itself would be excellent except the characters are undeveloped and the plot isn't good with a bad ending. This book was excellent, and will be one of my favorites for a long time. "Jesse" and Louisa are two lovable characters, and their stories keep you reading. Since one chapter would be about "Jesse" and the next about Louisa, I couldn't stop reading so that I could find out what happened to each of them! :o)

Very good, no ending 11. Mai 2013
Von Twocutekids - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Great story set in the civil war period. Love the characters and suspense! Be forewarned that it doesn't have a true ending, you'll want the 2nd and 3rd in the series waiting to see what happens.

Lovers of history will enjoy this touching story of two sisters 25. April 2012
Von Katie Garvin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Daughter of Twin Oaks was one of the first historical fiction books I read as a young teen, and I loved. When I saw that it was getting reprinted, I knew I had to get them to add to my library of books. After finishing this first book in the Secret Refuge series, it still remains one of my favorite historicals of all time. I am a BIG lover of history and, more specifically, the War Between the States. For such a controversy subject, I thought Lauraine Snelling handles it well, showing both sides of things.

While both the main characters in Daughter of Twin Oaks--Jesselynn and Louisa--have their father and brothers fighting for the Confederacy, Lauraine gives the gritty facts of that war between brothers and shows how, for many people, it didn't matter what uniform they wore. Jesselynn tries to keep her pure-breed horses out of the hands of both armies--North and South--and Louisa is desperate to give aid to any wounded man in uniform--blue or gray.

The writing style drew me into the book, as it felt so real. The expressions, descriptions, and slang that Snelling uses was so "in period", I was impressed and completely immersed in Jesselynn and Louisa's world. There was nothing questionable in the book, save for once a black woman has her shirt ripped open by a ruffian with ill intent, but he doesn't get farther than that. And the romance wasn't the main drive of the book (which, for all you non-romance readers out there, will appreciate).

As I said, after rereading Daughter of Twin Oaks, it still remains my favorite historical book set during the 1860s. I would recommend this book to readers of all ages. Especially those who have a love for the War Between the States.

I reviewed this book for Bethany House Publishers. Thanks to Jim for sending me a review copy. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
