Review of Robin: Christian Fiction by Julane Hiebert

Robin is the first book in a coming series- Brides of a Feather. The premise that the stories are built upon is that of three sisters whose father died and left behind debt. In Robin, one sister- conveniently named Robin- volunteers to go when a long lost uncle sends for one of them to help on his cattle ranch in Kansas.

Robin is a simple but sweet read. If you're looking for deep, complex reading, it isn't here. But the story line is interesting, with some twists and turns; and the main characters are fairly well-developed.

There is a spiritual message here. Robin has long struggled with God over a physical deformity that she was born with, and throughout the story, she comes to grips with that. But the message isn't preachy at all, just thought-provoking.

The romance in the story is sweet and is probably the main theme. But there are also things happening outside of the romance with a little intrigue and the story of a small boy who has lost his parents.

All in all, it was a good story- a little predictable at times, but interesting with likable characters. I give it 3.5 stars and a G rating for content. You can read more about the book and author below.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Julane is first of all a child of God. She is also a wife to Bob, mother to two living sons,Kip and Rob, two daughters in heaven, two wonderful daughters-in-law, Becky and Tami, and grandmother to six perfectly wonderful grands, as well as an additional three ‘other grands’. She lives with her husband in a wee cottage by a small lake nestled in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas.

Though encouraged by many to pen the story of raising two daughters with an incurable disease, she has chosen to incorporate the lessons learned into the lives of her not-too-perfect characters. Her passion is to present the promises and hope found in God’s Word in down-to-earth, everyday experiences through her stories.

Julane loves reading, decorating, junking, antiques, and chocolate! No particular order, but one would be safe to insert chocolate between all other interests.



ABOUT THE BOOK

In 1877 the Wenghold sisters inherited an overwhelming debt with their father’s passing. An uncle they’ve never met offers a solution—come help on his Kansas cattle ranch. The oldest sister, Robin, agrees to go.

Ty Morgan has suffered through a year of misery after being jilted by the town beauty a few months before their wedding. But a tornado whirls an unexpected breath of hope into his heart when he rescues Robin, his neighbor’s newly arrived niece, and a small boy who was orphaned by the storm.

Robin’s crippled leg prevents her from being a real help to Uncle John, but she seems to be exactly who Ty needs to heal his broken heart. Until his former fiancĂ©e returns and a mysterious, elusive stranger casts worry over the entire community.

A woman determined to honor her obligations, a man entangled in a long ago-made commitment, an orphaned child in need of security . . . Can God guide these three souls to peace and fulfillment together?
