At first, I wasn’t sure what to think of The Covered Deep: there was something about it that seemed almost too modern, too far-fetched…and yet historical all the same. The atmosphere of the story, for lack of a better word, just didn’t seem to flow right for me. But after the first three chapters...

Fans of historical and inspirational fiction may find themselves a little disappointed in this novel by first time author, Brandy Vallance. But before any of you vindictive Christian bloggers bite my head off (you know who you are!), let me explain the pros and cons of this book and how I reached...

I liked the concept of The Covered Deep: it’s 1877, and a young woman from a small town in Ohio wins a competition to travel to London, and on to the Holy Land. Bianca Marshal is twenty-five, well-read, and holding out for True Love (encouraged by her father). It’s soon apparent to the reader, if...

Then I heard this book was 14 years in the making. Fourteen YEARS.
I alternately wanted to weep and gape at the literary genius I was certain these pages would contain . . .
I was not disappointed.
Read my breakdown of this novel (Her...

As the story unfolded, the humor of Bianca's search for the perfect husband led her on adventur...

Extremely unique plot. Plenty of drama. Fascinating settings.
All tied together with a thread of mystery.
The Covered Deep is quite the impressive debut. It's weighty (literally and figuratively!) and bold in its direction. While I knew I was on the list to receive a paperback copy for review, I go...

I really have no clue what to say about this book. It was amazing in some sense-characters, storyline, setting, and spiritual content-but in another sense I hesitate to fully recommend it. There were several euphemism's used for God's name and on the last page several references to God name that...

MY GENERAL THOUGHTS: I really, really liked this book. It was different yet exciting at the same time. The writing is so beautiful and easy to follow and the characters were well made, even though they seemed to be flawed at times, which only made them that more realistic. The history facts throu...
