"I found this book to be a delightful and elegant story that drew me in until I couldn't put it down. A mastery of the time period and language with lots of details about early American life. Can two women make it through the cold winter? Now as winter approaches in real life, I want to order some firewood and make some hot tea. A bit of a surprise at the end! "

"The author states this is her first book; it sure doesn’t read that way! Her descriptions are vivid and the characters have great depth. The story really came alive for me. Set in the early 1900s, Shaw Point follows a young war widow and her companion turned friend from Roanoke to a farm her uncle willed to her. Arriving just before winter, their struggles were many, but God saw them through and surrounded them with good people they soon called friends. This is a clean book and I recommend it to everyone."
