No Longer Alone: Based on a True Story Reviews
The story of Prentis and Avery so touched my heart that I could not put the book down.
No Longer Alone is an enjoyable and meaningful story! The fact that it is based on the author's great grandparents makes it all the more special. I loved the courtship and engagement between Prentis and Avery. With no phones or email, hand written letters is the way they keep in touch while they are apart. And Prentis, though reserved and unassuming, writes to Avery with such tenderness and love, it melts my heart! Avery has a fun and adventurous personality that sometimes gets her in trouble, but she is thoughtful and humble enough to admit her downfalls and strive for better. They both want God to be at the center of their marriage, and look to Him for help, to navigate through many issues in their lives. I especially appreciate the struggle Prentis goes through concerning church attendance. I think anyone who has struggled with this issue, no matter what the reason, will find his process and conclusion helpful. Looking forward to the sequel!!!
I enjoyed reading this book, I could relate to the story, because I used to live in Wakita and very familiar with most of the people
Loved the story and characters! After the first chapter I couldn't put it down.
It was a pleasure to read this book from start to finish. Readers who come from a background of the homestead era and prairie farming traditions will recognize this story as an authentic portrayal of the dreams and struggles of a young couple as they forge a life together. The author’s descriptions of everyday life on a farm in the early 20th century are rich in detail. It is as if we were there, witnessing daily occurrences. The conversations in the story come across as genuine and underscore the importance of constant communication in any relationship. One section that was particularly delightful involved the young couple discovering things about each other they didn’t know before they married. So true to life!
Just by starting this book sounds like a great adventure waiting just for me!!
