    One thought on “Ribbon in the Sky”

    1. I couldn't quite give this one star, though it may have deserved it, because it was going ok until I hit a put-down moment, and I just couldn't keep reading. Maybe I'm being hard on it, especially since the moment came pretty early in the book, but sheeshSo, the daughter of a fire and brimestone preacher gets pregnant (by a Catholic -- gasp!) and he tosses her out of the house. She leaves, sends exactly one letter to his mom to try to get in touch with him, goes off to live with her grandparents [...]

    2. A little too sappy and not much of a conflict for the protagonists to overcome in order to be together. Maybe I'm too jaded for books like this anymore.

    3. Forced out of her parents home at 15 because she was pregnant and not married, Letty Pringle found a home with her grandma and grandpa Fletcher while waiting for her beloved Mike to return to her from working at the camp to save enough money to provide for a future for Letty and him. Fast forward to five years later and Letty is raising her son as a single mom with the help of her grandfather. Believed to have been abandoned by Mike, Letty refuses to open herself to love again. Until one day out [...]

    4. I usually love Garlock's western oldies, but this one was too sickly sweet. Too much oooing and aaahing and being upstanding, all very irritating. Too much drama over the bastardy - there were many ways out of that one. The overall story is OK, and the preacher angle is a good one. Really liked the grandfather character, the bootleg drama and the scene when Mike finds her again is especially strong, though her reaction is a bit extreme.
