"Chasing the Sun" by Tracie Peterson is her first in the "Land of the Lonestar" series. Set in Civil War-era Texas, the story focuses on a young woman named Hannah Dandridge. Her widowed father's disappearance leaves her young siblings in her care along with a ranch to run. William Barnett is a soldier returning after being wounded to reclaim his ranch which had been seized due to his family's loyalties in the war. Her father's law partner, Herbert Lockhart, adds intriguing complications to the story. Overall, the characters are likeable and flushed out. Hannah's strong will and determination made her a compelling character. The compassion that she sought to demonstrate was remarkable as well. In some instances, it really took a bit of courage but the payoffs were well worth it. The story flowed well and the plot had enough twists and turns to keep it engaging. Themes of forgiveness, redemption, compassion, and love run strong in this novel. As a big fan of Peterson's work, I was excited to pick up this book and it did not disappoint. I felt it was significantly better that her previous couple of series. I'm definitely looking forward to the next two installments of this Texas trilogy! (Ive received this complimentary book from Bethany House Publishers through the Book Blogger program in exchange for a review. A positive review was not required and the views expressed in my review are strictly my own.)

This book is a good bang for your (design) buck!! Pages are filled with beautiful photographs....including shots of Genevieve Gorder's home! Great gift for the interior design lover! Purchased after reading reviews on certain book sellers' websites, and do not have any buyer's remorse!

I found this book for 16.95 in a Florida Tourist Shop and couldn't find myself to buy it. My husband and I read the whole book together in the store and it was just so cute that I thought I would check out Overstock and sure enough it's **** bucks on here!

i have the type of dad who doesnt like anything, and has everything. i had actually never seen him crack open a book, in my 26 years of existance. so i figured, eh whats ten bucks? i went out on a limb and got him the book. he laughed his *** off. and randomly would quote the book. my bfs dad is the exact same way, a real guys guy. he laughed at the book too!! seriously... its worth it.

This novel exceeded my expectations in terms of quality of the story and was an enjoyable and excellent read. When I think of video game tie-in novels, I tend to be prejudiced towards thinking of them as juvenile and just in it for a quick buck from fans of the games. Eric Nylund did an amazing job of fleshing out the characters and setting, and allowing the book to stand on its own merits. I am a fan of the Halo video games, but I believe that these books would be accessible to any fan of sci-fi action novels, especially if they like special forces/military novels as well (such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six novel). I can also highly recommend his follow up novel, First Strike. Skip "The Flood", written by a different author, as it follows the story of the first Halo game, and doesn't really bring anything new to the table.

I have been a raptor enthusiast for a little over 30 years now. In that time, I have banded and counted hawks as well as led many raptor viewing field trips. When I started, by far the best field guide on hawks was the first edition of the National Geographic field Guide to the Birds of North America, a good general guide to all of the birds, now in its sixth edition and still a great all around field guide. Then, William Clark came out with the first edition of his Field Guide to Hawks in the Peterson field guide series. That was what raptor folks were waiting for, a field guide devoted to diurnal raptors only. Not too long after, in 1988 came Hawks in Flight, which dealt with hawk identification a bit differently in that it was as much about what raptors do as well as what they look like. In the intervening 24 years, there have been many very good books on raptors, Clark and Brian Wheeler did one as a photographic guide, both of Clarks books were upgraded, Jerry Liguori did two excellent books of flying raptors and Wheeler did an awesome two-volume set of eastern and western raptors. Just about the time that one would figure that there was not too much to add, the second edition of Hawks in Flight came out by the same three authors who did the first edition. In the ensuing 24 years since their first effort, a great deal has been brought to everyones attention and this book incorporates much of that, but what sets this book apart from all of the others, is in its approach to learning about identifying hawks. Instead of each page standing alone, this book works more like a lesson on raptors. It takes the reader step by step through the process of identification for each group of similar species. I will keep all of the other raptor books I now have, but this one is the one I will wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who wants to really learn raptor identification

I ordered this and compendium 2 for my husband for christmas. When I opened up the box whoever packaged it was careless and folded the box through the cover so the cover was badly torn and the first 50 or so pages bent and torn. Overstock responded promtly and sent a replacement which is now wrapped up and waiting to be put under the tree =] My husband is going to be so happy. The book is a great deal bc its the first 10 graphic novels which sell for about 10 bucks a piece. It has nice glossy pages and a relatively thick cover for being paperback.
