Also unique, this book is set in the town I live in and so I had a unique pleasure in recognizing places and settings - this is my home and so the connection is strong in a profoundly personal way. It was surprising and delightful and lighthearted where it needed to be and yet doesn't pull any punches either like a certain pastor character in the book In short, I really really liked this book and will probably be reading it again - more slowly this time to savor Wilson's use of language and deft development of characters.
I expected to like it it is Pastor Wilson, after all , but I definitely did not expect what I received.
Apr 23, Stefan Hull rated it really liked it. Well-written, engaging, and even suspenseful at times, with protagonists you can root for without hesitation. My favorite kind of book. I took one star away for the narrator explaining too much to the reader. The story could have done the preaching just fine on its own. Apr 13, Jen Vanderwey rated it it was amazing. Well, he nailed it. But, really, who is surprised.
Loved the fun little cameos of the Princeton giants too. Jan 21, Terri rated it did not like it. Pedantic drivel. I guess it's called "historical romance," because Savannah walks to church instead of driving where people think she's the most marriageable because only ancient history and whack patriarchal churches think that way , lives in a "boardinghouse" and has "suitors. And when she hikes up a hill, instead of taking in the view, she "discovers glorious prospects to the south. A grown up man pastor writing romance!? Perhaps thi Pedantic drivel.
The Supreme Court Is One Vote Away from Changing How the U.S. Is Governed
Perhaps this romance pastor is writing about his desires- for a very young woman to fall hopelessly in love with the awkward pastor instead of the businessman. The book is a bloviating mess of words. Add to that a very arcane view of "romance" and you have this. Feb 07, Paul rated it it was amazing. This book is neither: it's a richly spiritual, edifying, hilarious, romantic story.go
Sleepless in Vermont
A masterful work. As with Wilson's other novels, read in one sitting. May 22, Bethany Ehrlich rated it it was amazing. Read this in one day on vacation. It was difficult to put down once I started. A fun love story with twists and turns. Fun to listen to the audio of this. Put a visible smile on my face more than a few times.

Mar 29, Josh Dockter rated it really liked it. What is a 65 year old pastor from Moscow, Idaho doing writing a romance novel?
Well, it is a historical romance novel. Would you rather have a creepy single lady write a romance novel or would you rather have a Christian man who has loved his one wife for over forty years, raising three kids and seventeen grandkids write it?

Wilson understands the problem of sin but greater yet he understands that there is only one solution to overcome sin in this world. If you want to have a good time exploring small town dynamics then I recommend you read this book. Very enjoyable and I won't hide the fact that one part left me reaching for the corner of my eye it itched and no, it didn't have anything to do with the romance.

May 28, Pages. May 07, Pages. May 07, Minutes. Shribman, The Boston Globe Richard Holbrooke was brilliant, utterly self-absorbed, and possessed of almost inhuman energy and appetites. His power lay in an utter belief in himself and his idea of a muscular, generous foreign policy. From his days as a young adviser in Vietnam to his last efforts to end the war in Afghanistan, Holbrooke embodied the postwar American impulse to take the lead on the global stage. But his sharp elbows and tireless self-promotion ensured that he never rose to the highest levels in government that he so desperately coveted.
His story is thus the story of America during its era of supremacy: its strength, drive, and sense of possibility, as well as its penchant for overreach and heedless self-confidence. The answer is unabashedly yes.
A Literary Salon Where All Are Welcome
This is a remarkable work about a remarkable, if deeply flawed, statesman whose career was intimately intertwined with the 50 years of American decline from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The point is not to analyze things—why Yugoslavia flew to pieces, or what Johnson did for the English language with his dictionary. The point is to winkle out and bring to light the whole truth of the man: what he was like in all his contradictions.
