  3. When Alice s Notions by Tamera Lynn Kraft starts out, you may be tempted to think it will be a sweet historical story about a young woman learning to navigate life as a war widow And while it IS an historical story about a young war widow, it s so much than that It s full of intrigue, suspense, ROMANCE, and a heartfelt plot line on overcoming prejudices and assumptions And did I mention romance Because that first kiss is a doozy A couple of subsequent ones are too Whew Kraft has done a great jo [...]

  5. I don t know what it was about this book that drew me in, but it did It might have been the opening chapter that was so tragic or Alice s determination after the war.This book is full of pieces to a puzzle and there seems to be and pieces with each chapter It could be a bit confusing at times but I had this certainty that in the end it would all make sense.My heart went out to Greta and I wanted Alice to give her a chance and the rest of the town She seemed to kind and wasn t your stereotypica [...]

  15. I was uncertain of what to expect when I agreed to review Alice s Notions What little information I read seemed somewhat intriguing but I had no idea that I would be so captivated by this book As other reviewers have remarked, the plot reminded me of a classic movie from the black and white era I could absolutely see it being made into a movie.Something shady is happening in Alice Brighton s small mountain hometown where she has returned after World War 2 as a widow It is not the quiet and safe [...]


  16. Alice s Notions by Tamera Lynn Kraft is a really good book The genre is listed as Christian historical romance but to me it seems as a mystery.What I liked about this book is that Alice is able to overcome her prejudice and accept a refugee who is a German At first she wasn t really sure she wanted to but then she realized that she has no choice.This story has me laughing out loud at some of the husband and wife spats in this book And I liked the way Alice talked to her dead husband Joe, maybe [...]


  17. World War II has always fascinated me, and so any fictional book set in or around that time captures my imagination This book combines a small town that reminds me of my own hometown with that time frame, so it was a great read for me I loved the idea of a barn quilt tour, as my small town recently did quilt blocks on local buildings Alice was a likeable character, as was Greta, the German refuge who Alice is unsure of There were also some unlikeable characters, which is great for the book Sheri [...]

  21. I loved the reviews I saw, so I decided to give it a shot I hold the opposite viewpoint of the other reviewers To begin with I am surprised that no one else even commented on all the errors throughout the book Even if they thought the story was great, I would expect that the errors would at least be addressed I found the characters bland and the story line boring It was a very difficult read for me I did like the fact that the historical aspect was spot on The author definitely did her homework.
