Diana Quick Notes

October 1, 2017

I started writing this post, like, years ago, so maybe it’s time to get it up there…and as I’ve mentioned before, #29, Diana by Mary Francis Shura, is one of my favorites. It’s focused on the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Front Cover Blurb: She’s been a citizen of two countries, but where […]

Josie Quick Notes

July 20, 2015

Surprise! I bet you thought I’d never get back to these last few books, but I decided to slog through Sunfire #28, Josie…and I it wasn’t really as bad as I remembered. Hmmm.   Front Cover Blurb: Her ride for the pony express changes her dreams—and her heart. Back Cover Blurb: Can Josie have love and […]

Nora Quick Notes

May 27, 2013

Surprise! I bet you never thought this was going to happen, didn’t you? I started writing this recap in May of 2013. Here’s the thing. Sunfire #26 by Jeffie Ross Gordon features one of the least-popular heroines: Nora. Before I started rereading it, I thought, “People give Nora a bum rap. Sure, she starts off […]

Gabrielle Quick Notes

March 24, 2013

Sorry about the hiatus…I’ve got a very busy work schedule at the moment. But here, without further ado, is a post that’s been in the works for a while. Sunfire #24 is one of my favorites: Gabrielle by Mary Francis Shura. Front Cover Blurb: Is it the showboat magic that makes him love her? Back Cover Blurb: […]

Rachel Quick Notes

November 17, 2012

Rachel, Sunfire #21, is one of Vivian Schurfranz’s titles that I like more than dislike. Front Cover Blurb: America promised her a new a life and a new love. Back Cover Blurb: Can she be true to her heritage and to the boy she loves? Main Character: Rachel Rothkowski, brown hair, brown eyes, turns 16 […]

Laura Quick Notes

May 1, 2012

Next up, one of the most modern Sunfires, Laura, by Vivan Schurfranz. Front Cover Blurb: There was a fierce war raging abroad, and another in her heart. Back Cover Blurb: Would she abandon her beliefs for love? Main character: Laura Mitchell, 15 at the start of the book, 16 by the end; brown hair, green […]

Elizabeth Quick Notes

July 25, 2010

Elizabeth, by Willo Davis Robers, is Sunfire #3. I’m actually surprised by how worn my copy of Elizabeth is…It’s almost falling apart! I don’t remember loving this one so much, but perhaps the tale of someone who gets what’s coming to her enthralled me. Front cover blurb: In a time of treachery and terror, loving […]

Susannah Quick Notes

July 18, 2010

Susannah, by Candice F. Ransom, is Sunfire #2. You can tell how much I loved this book…the cover is a little extra worn! Susannah’s face is the worse for the wear. I actually think I owned this book before Amanda. Front cover blurb: Everything is gone…her home, her family, her past. All that is left […]

Quick Notes on All Books

July 4, 2010

I think instead of continuing on with Danielle right now, I’ll do quick notes on all the books, from 1-32. I’ll post main character names, descriptions, and settings. Starting, of course, with Amanda. You can see from the scans that my copy of Amanda, by Candice F. Ransom, purchased new in 1984, is pretty battered […]

Danielle: The Cover

February 25, 2010

Here’s the cover for the book. If you click on it, you can see it full size. So here it is in all its pink glory. As a 12-year-old, I’m sure I loved it. And I remember walking into Crown Books, seeing it had been released, and snatching it up in excitement. (A feeling that […]
