The writing was absolutely phenomenal. I was drawn in by the first page and held captive until the very end. The storyline was equally gripping and heartbreaking. I will say though that the content of the story was pretty heavy and it may be a difficult read for those who are uncomfortable with abuse/child abuse. Much of the story dealt with the post-traumatic stress Amanda and her young daughter Chloe suffered for years at the hands of Amanda’s husband.
Fortunately, Ms. Anderson balanced the pain and heartache with a strong, loving presence in the form of Jeb Sterling and his family. Jeb is not perfect, but he is a hard-working man who cares about his family and his community. He paired Amanda well and was nothing but patient and understanding. I fell in love with him right alongside Amanda!
SILVER THAW has suspense, love, a little romance and a lot of heart. I would recommend this book to anyone and I’d definitely read this author again!

Mind you, that is almost an irrelevance. The book seemed very long and very slow. I normally find her books compulsive page turners but on this occasion I seemed to be flipping pages but not getting anywhere fast. I felt it improved towards the end but, in my opinion, one to forget.
The story is rich in emotion and humor. Love of family, trust, faith in other human beeings bring together a group of people that you are glad will follow you into the second and third chapter of the Saga. Another wonderful story!
Das Buch kombiniert eine Liebesgeschichte mit sehr hässlichen Szenen häuslicher Gewalt an Mutter und Kind. Kann man machen, ist aber dünnes Eis. Die Protagonistin bleibt mir ein wenig blass und zwischen "Ich verabscheue Sex" und "Ich kriege nicht genug von Dir" liegen quasi 30 Seiten. Nicht glaubwürdig.
Ein Drittel des Buches erzählt davon, wie sich wer wie bewaffnet, um Schutz zu bieten. Da liegen quasi überall Schusswaffen griffbereit und selbst die Mutter trägt eine. Alles im Haus mit Sechsjähriger. Und am Ende siegt natürlich das Gute, der Böse stirbt. Aber Gott hat alles so gefügt, der arme Mann war halt krank und im Himmel ist ja niemand mehr böse, weil Gott alle liebt!
Mir ist das zu klischee-amerikanisch und hat mir die Lust auf weitere Bücher dieser Autorin genommen.
