  1. Staci Staci says:

    Sweet novella based upon the Great Gale of 1815 I love that the author used facts of that event to create this fictional tale

  2. Hannah Hannah says:

    The beginning with a predicament for both the hero and heroine engages the reader and pulls them right in The ending with the storm based on the real storm of 1815 was excellent and suspenseful In the middle though was some unclear motivations and some characters incapable of seeing what was right under their nose in terms of solutions to their issues I almost wanted to lay the book aside when view spoilerthe hero up and walked out on his job without so much as a by your leave moving away while Mem was gone wasting money and not having a plan for his future and ultimately putting his sons’s life at risk hide spoiler

    No Small Storm is a uick read but also extremely captivating and enjoyable From the fascinating history of the Great Gale of 1815 to the early American sights sounds and smells of Providence Rhode Island to the vivid characters Anne Mateer has crafted a story that engages all the senses as well as the heart and the mindI love reading about the early American time period and Mateer does a fabulous job of weaving setting and dialect to immerse readers right into that era with her characters And then adding the history behind such a powerful storm plus the gorgeously worded narrative “feeling to her bones the coolness of stone walls which never warmed“ I’m a happy readerMem and Simon are both determined to establish their own independence not relying on someone else’s whims to make decisions for them And yet both find themselves in desperate need of assistance in order to secure that independence Both are also just as desperate to avoid being dependent on the same person – Graham Lott a rather sleazy little guy who reminded me of a scrawnier Gaston from Beauty the Beast This juxtaposition of fierce independence along with dependence born out of necessity gave their characters additional depth and dimension As does the gentle message that dependence on God brings freedom – and relying on someone we love and their reliance on us makes both of us strongerBottom Line No Small Storm by Anne Mateer is an intriguing look at a brutal storm yes but it’s the development before the storm that really establishes the heart of the story It’s because of the investment we as readers have already made in the characters and the setting that we care so much about the storm’s devastation The romance is sweet and progresses naturally despite the shorter word count of the story although the freuent internal ‘does he feel the same does she feel the same’ debate wasted some time that left the romantic declarations feeling somewhat rushed at the end Overall this is a truly enjoyable story based on real life events – and I’m looking forward to in this seriesI voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this bookfirst seen at Reading Is My SuperPower

    Reviewed at The Power of Words Mateer is a new author to me and I enjoyed not only her writing style but the time period in which this story is set as Christian fiction doesn’t reflect nearly enough early American settings as I’d like No Small Storm is a well crafted story with appealing lead characters and good character depth for a novella I’m glad it begins the Coast to Coast Brides series because I’m eager to read Remembrance Mem and Simon are easily relatable characters Mem working hard to harvest the family apple orchard that she inherited is a delightful blend of strength determination and insecurities – realizing that many suitors are only interested in her possessions Simon has the leading man traits that I admire – integrity tender protective – and I cared for him immediately And I can guarantee that his four year old son will steal your heartI loved the historical detail especially that Mateer drew inspiration from an actual hurricane that hit Providence in 1815 Experiencing it through the character’s eyes is so much different than with today’s technological advances Be sure to read Anne’s interesting guest post below for lots detailSpiritual elements are subtle but very much present as both Simon and Mem rekindle a faith that had become less important in their lives and learn what it means to surrender These words from Anne’s post beautifully capture what we find in No Small Storm Historical fact and spiritual truth Characters who are a product of their times as well as universal in their struggles and desiresI thoroughly enjoyed No Small Storm and want to read by Anne Mateer soon RecommendedI was provided a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own

  6. Maureen Timerman Maureen Timerman says:

    The author brings to 1815 Rhode Island and we meet a man and his precious four year old as they begin their new lives in AmericaWe soon see what a cobbler and an orchard owner have in common and it will warm your heart but will others prevail and end up pulling them apartI loved the Author’s Notes at the end of this book and you don’t want to miss what her research found We get to experience it first hard through her eyes and wow is Providence still there?We also have a strong woman in the form of Remembrance “Mem” as the owner of an apple orchard most likely unheard of back in the 1800’s but a lot of obstacles are thrown in her way Then Daniel an experienced Cobbler with not store front or place to live how will he be able to survive?One sweet historical readI received this book through CelebrateLit and was not reuired to give a positive review

    Deep breath This is a bit of a difficult review for me to write I have read 2 other books by Anne Mateer and really enjoyed them I’m having a hard time putting my finger on what happened with this one Possibly it’s because it’s a novella and not a full length novel but I really had a hard time getting into this one It felt like I kept waiting for the story to start and then when the storm came I was caught completely off guard another “I don’t know why” because the blurb talks about it I guess there weren’t really any portents in the story itself of possible danger of storms even though that is the central event of the storyI liked the characters of Mem and Simon in general though I can’t say I particulary sympathized with either of them At times the emotion seemed overly dramatized and at others it seemed rushed once again this is somewhat the nature of novellasThe spiritual content was basically good though there wasn’t a whole lot of depthSo my overall thoughts? It was a pretty good story but in general a bit blandSo sorry for this Mrs Mateer I really kept trying to like it and I truly hate writing a negative review but I also have to be honestI’m giving this 3 starsDisclaimer I received a complimentary review copy of this book from CelebrateLit in exchange for my honest review

    I️ Loved this sweet story The historical references are fascinating The orchard and town are lovely settings I️ would have loved romance but this is a short novella There was some editing issues but I️ don’t take off stars for that There was a lot of “does he love me?” “Am I️ good enough for her?” contemplations Pretty much at the end of each chapter Other than that good read

Will the two grow closer?This book reminded me of the storms we face everyday in life How we look at the storm is going to determine the outcome God will bring us through every storm we travel through but it is up to us to learn the lesson He is trying to teach us This is a great book that I highly recommend to all“I received a complimentary copy of this book from the authorpublisher I was not reuired to write a positive review All opinions expressed are mine alone
