    1. Had I not been so annoyed at a few things, I might have cried at the end. The main thing being the over usage of the word "baritone" in the place of "voice". 26 times is way too much. It's as if the author couldn't come up with anything better or as if she had just learned a new word and was intent on showing off her new knowledge at every slight opportunity. Another thing being that it sporadically went from Noelle's thoughts to Thad's thoughts to the third person on both of them, sometimes eve [...]


    2. Holy Mackerel, this was the WORST book I have EVER read. She uses the most disgustingly ridiculous similes I've ever read, and is so heavy-handed with them, I found myself laughing out loud at them while I read. It is a Christian Romance - not super religiously overtoned, but there is exactly ONE KISS (what kind of romance novel has one kiss???) and the characters were as flat as pancakes personality-wise. I'm pretty sure there was no plot. Just a lot of "I'm so hurt, I couldn't possibly love hi [...]


    3. It had been quite a while since I had read something on the lines of historical romance and although this book claimed of being one, it was far from it.The whiny annoying heroine, Noelle, loses her parents and her sight in a road accident and the absolutely flawless hero, Thad, knows nothing about the tragedy as he had left Noelle much before that. Noelle's parents had convinced Thad that he would never be able to provide their daughter the comforts and luxuries of life that she was so used to. [...]


    4. I wanted to love this book, really I did. But the quality of the writing stopped me. The idea of the female character, Noelle, being blind and finding love despite that was touching. I found the male character, Thad, to be the only saving grace of the book. His devotion to her was wonderful. I did like the various minor characters. However, not enough was done to describe them, past Henrietta's objection to modern progress, which was amusing. The only plot of the book, the accident with the uncl [...]


    5. Third of the three free ebooks in the Love Inspired line from Harlequin. Man, I deserve karmic points for sticking with this turgid and tedious story to the end. Okay, okay, I admit to skipping plenty of stuff in the last chapter, in my eagerness to just be done with the story. But the point is that I did in fact stick with it to the end. Historic romance set in 1860's Montana. Previously sighted heroine rendered blind by a blow on the head in a buggy accident that also killed the parents who (u [...]


    6. Seventeen-year-old Noelle Kramer was filled with the hopes and dreams of first love, believing that in Thad MacKaslin she had found the man she would spend the rest of her life with. But on the night they were to elope, she learned he had left town without a word, and she believed she would never see him again. Although her heart was broken, she planned to marry another and at least have a home and family of her own, until a tragic accident left her parents dead and Noelle blind, destroying her [...]


    7. This book was obviously named by a marketing person who had never read the book. "Homespun Bride" does not apply to the story in any way!I wanted to like this sweet book. I did like the heroine, Noelle, very much. You do not see many romance novels where the heroine is blind, and I appreciate that about it. The novel was too long for what was going on. I think it might have been better if we had seen it only from Noelle's point of view, but we had to go through every scene with both the thoughts [...]


    8. I want to preface this review by saying I don't normally read romance novels. They're just not my thing. However, the e-book was free, and I am not one to pass up a free book. So I thought I'd try it. It was pretty much what I expected. It felt very slow to me. I kept reading and then looking at the page count. I was unsure how the author was going to fill it as they were pining for each from page 1. It ends exactly how you expect it's going to from the beginning. No huge surprises or twists. Ho [...]


    9. I loved this book about a blind young woman, Noelle, whose true love, Thad, was run out of town five years ago by her parents and she believed he had just left her because he didn't love her anymore. She was broken hearted but went on with her life and in the meantime was in a terrible accident which killed her parents and left her blind.Thad comes back to town without her knowledge when she is almost in another accident and comes along just in time to save her not realizing it is him! He sticks [...]


    10. One of the free books for eHarlequin's 60th birthday.A lot less slushy than many of their other novels--throughout the novel there is only one kiss!--and a frustrating tale of two lovers who believe the time for their love has passed.I found myself skimming through various sections, because the pacing was a little slow, and there simply wasn't enough tension between the two characters to keep things moving.


    11. I really, really wanted to like this book. And I did like how this book taught patience and faith. Not just to the characters within the story, but also to the reader. (You have to have a lot of patience to get through this book, and some faith that it will get better doesn't help, even though it's disappointed faith by the end.) After saying thatI have no idea where the title came from, but it so does not fit this story. I have no problem with suffering and tortured characters, but these two wo [...]


    12. ugh. i got this for free and tried to give a fair chance, but it was just every kind of awful. Let me save you the time- there was not a single redeeming thing about this book. Not onee characters are one dimensional. any "change" occured before the book startede characters are the authors idea of flawless. the only thing that stands between them is a simple misunderstanding: *spoiler alert, which is revealed in like, the first page* Thad left her the night they were supposed to elope, and subse [...]


    13. I downloaded this book to my Kindle because it was free,it was a historical western and the h's name was Noelle (almost never see my name in a book). It turned out to be a pretty good book. It did turn out to be a Christian/ faith based story wich really isn't my cuppa but wasn't advertised that way.Noelle (h) lost her sight and her parents in a cariage accident and lives with her Aunt, Uncle and cousins. Thad (H) was suppose to elope with Noelle 5 years before(before she lost her sight) but lef [...]


    14. The only reason I read this in the first place was because it was a free ebook. And it was okay. But I can't give it much more than that.The main character - Noelle - was whiny and annoying; constantly determined that there was NO WAY anyone could ever love her or that she could possibly live without being a burden on whoever she lived with. She went on and on about the fact that there was no way Thad could love her. And, quite simply, it got incredibly boring.Thad was okay, but he was little mo [...]


    15. I am very glad, that this was a free book - otherwise it would have been a disappointment to spent any money on it! Once you have found out, that Noelle and Thad (the "stranger" who rescued her and her aunt) have been lovers once, you now the end of the story - and this end could have come much faster. If both of them haven't thinking all the time, that either they don't love the other anymore (but their reaction proved otherwise) or that the other doesn't love them still (although the behaviour [...]


    16. Noelle goes blind after the horse-drawn carraige carrying her and her parents has a horrible accident in the snow and ice. Not only does she lose her sight but she also loses both parents. Her Aunt, Uncle and 5 girl cousins take her in as one of their own as they move to Montanna to be with her. This is not the only traumatic event in her life. At the age of 16 she falls in love with a man who stands her up after having made plans for marraige. Years later, dependent upon her Aunt and Uncle she [...]


    17. Romance novels are a favorite of mine here lately, and I have been trying to find new, clean romances, which is a bit hard these days. But when I saw this one for free, I gave it a go. I love romance, and I love frontier historical fiction. How bad could it be?It was slow--horribly slow. I knew how the book would end from page one, and there were no plot twists or surprises to ever make me think otherwise, which made for a very boring read.The author also did a lot of head-hopping between the ch [...]


    18. I thought this one was good, the story was a sweet one. I didn't go into this book realizing who the publisher was. I picked this book up this book for free because I'm a sucker for feel good stories every now and again. My one complaint, that isn't so much as a complaint, but an observation; The story got to the point where the god speak felt a bit forced, and it was nearer the end. It just felt like it was unnaturally shoved in in parts so that a quota could be fit. Just left the dialog/text f [...]


    19. This book was cute but I think it could have been a novella and it would have been SO MUCH BETTER!! There was just way too much of her thinking, then him thinking. Then she was thinking about the same thing, then he was thinking about it againd so on! You get the point. There was just way too much inner conversations (the same one!) going on. It would have been nice if there were some side stories developed or something. Noelle was very strong, I wish she would have realized that at some point. [...]


    20. Perhaps I'm not fair giving this book 3 stars?! I'm just NOT a romance reader! When I started the book I thought it would be more "historical fiction", but was into it when I realized it really was a romance. It is set in an earlier century, so is referred to as historical fiction. I wish libraries would divide out the true romance fictions from a true HISTORICAL fictions I love when I find that an author has done lots of research and the reader has the opportunity to learn something.


    21. Wow, people who finish this book deserve some major points!! The tale between the two characters is slow paced, sluggish and repetitive. This was a side novel to have something quick to read in between other longer novels and instead became the book that would never find an ending (happy or not). I began to wonder how many ways there were to say a few of the "key phrases" that dominated the book. It was a free download for my nook and I'm not even sure it was worth thath!


    22. I really enjoyed this book. The heroine is blind in 1883 Montana. It's a lovely love story with a HEA ending. It may be an inspirational romance but no bible thumping in this one, just references to folks praying.


    23. I enjoyed the story, but the constant pining for the past and the main characters feeling sorry for themselves constantly got on my nerves. It would have been a better story and much shorter if there hadn't been so much of the pining and internal whining.


    24. I believe that how one views a book differs depending on the reader, so regardless of seeing some of the negative reviews that this book had, I was still aching to read it because of its plot. Sadly same as the others I wasn’t satisfied. The book was redundant. It keeps on repeating the love they have for each other to prolong the book. I think the real action started 75% of the book. I’m still wondering what will be the hero’s reaction if he finds out that the heroine owns the land he wan [...]


    25. The old saying “true love conquers all” is one we’re definitely familiar with. Jillian Hart takes it to a whole new level in her inspirational romance, Homespun Bride. Set on the wide plains of Montana in 1883, we’re treated to a story of adventure, overcoming obstacles, and love that defies all odds.Noelle Kramer and her Aunt Henrietta are in trouble. On a routine carriage ride home from town they become stuck in a fast-moving blizzard. Not only are they alone, but Noelle is blind. Five [...]


    26. The starting pages of promise a good story. The heroine is Noelle, a young lady at the end of the 19th century who is blind following an accident. Noelle and her aunt Henrietta are out for a drive on a winter’s day when their horse bolts and they are only just rescued before plunging into the river. The rescuer - by remarkable coincidence - is a young man called Thad who just happens to be the man who jilted Noelle some years previously, and disappeared without a trace, leaving her heartbroken [...]


    27. Review originally published at These Pretty WordsI’m a sucker for a good historical romance. Whether it is a Regency Era story filled with rogues and broken betrothals or a wonderful politically charged tale from the reign of Bloody Mary – when they’re done right, I get sucked back in time and love every single second. So when I saw this little number come up as a possible review book, I jumped at the chance to read it.Author Jillian Hart takes us back to 1883 and places her characters in [...]


    28. I rarely read reviews of books before I complete them - and for a good reason, too. Unless I am looking for a new author whose work I might like to try, I don't want to be influenced by opinions. I've just finished reading this book and have gone to look at some of the reviews. And frankly, I'm surprised by some of them. Classed as a historical romance from Harlequin, the novel is set in rural Montana. The heroine is a young woman who lost her sight five years prior to the time we meet her; the [...]


    29. I was initially drawn to this book because it featured a blind heroine and one of my very first youthful romances was with a girl blind since birth. As I read it, I likened it to Jane Austen's Persuasion, not in quality but the story idea.Noelle Kramer had come to live with her devoted aunt following the tragic wagon accident that killed both of her parents and leaves her blind because of a severe blow to her head. Noelle and her aunt are rescued from a an almost accident in their sleigh by what [...]


    30. While I did feel that the story dragged on in places and I wanted to shake the characters for not just getting together already, I did really like this book. The secondary characters and setting really came alive, and Noelle's passages were written brilliantly, and I really saw the world through her "eyes" and learned to understand situations from how they sounded rather than how they looked. The concept of a blind heroine worked wonderfully, but I did get frustrated with how long it took the ma [...]
