review Sons of Blackbird Mountain 103 A tale of family brotherhood and the healing power of loveAfter the tragic death of her husband Aven Norgaard is beckoned to give up her life in Norway to become a housekeeper in the rugged hills of nineteenth century Appalachia Upon arrival she finds herself in the home of her late husband’s cousins three brothers who make a living by brewing hard cider on their three hundred acre farm Yet even as a stranger in a foreign land A. Cue difficult reviewmay be some spoilers aheadAs much as I wanted to enjoy this story I never could connect with it Aven was a great character but I never really got to know her and over I don t think she knew herself We know who she is in the moment but we have no clue what her goals in life are or what her ultimate dreams are It s clear from the story that she doesn t even know from one month to the next what she really is going tohoping to do other than her talent for baking It s evident that she falls for Thor but she kisses Haakon tooI don t understand her reasoning for kissing one guy while she is consideringdrawn to two it feels very modern and odd in a time when kissing guys meant strong commitment or even engagement It s hard to express correctly but I think the closest I can come is that Aven s character is reactive in that she is shaped by every circumstance and doesn t have a lot of independent thoughts and goals that her life is shaped by undefined longings than by real solid dreams Her journey from kissing one guy to marrying the other thus felt almost like her becoming an attachment to someone who had a sense of direction than for her having actually discovered her own sense of directionThor s Deafness was an excellent portrayal and I really enjoyed reading about his love for the apple orchards and the land he workedThe drinking issue with Thor is portrayed very heavily and his drunkenness is a key part of the story This part is all very realistic However I felt his recovery was not so realistic The doctor s attitude I could have excused for rural ignorance but on top of that they say oh it all cooks out about using the cider for baking which it doesn t and which wasn t even a concept back then teetotalers of the day according to books I ve read from the 1880s were against all forms of baked goods breads and puddings and all that had any sort of drink as an ingredient because of desensitizing folks to the flavor Why not use applesauce or apple juice in the baked goodsWriting style Bischof uses a choppy driven prose and that s hard for me sometimes because instead of using regular sentence fragments often sentences are deliberately fragmented by putting a period right in the middle for no reason at all Also it doesn t pair well with historic forms of expression they definitely would not have talked in fragments to that extent and it interrupted the historical feel of the conversationSetting the apple farm itself was excellent The scenery is rich and easy to see in the imagination The historical setting not so much Seems to drift between Civil War era habits to twenties habits so without a strong setting of history it felt fragmented In one part it talks about the brothers father having fought in the war and makes it seem like they were boys but I was thinking of it having been set in the 1890s which would make them men in their fiftiesand that was just one of my mental hiccupsAven s attackthis wasn t just hard to read It was also hard to make sense of and I m not sure how I ll feel about the next book because of it While I didn t like that it happened it also felt like it threw the plot off a bit and took balance out of the ending After so much focus on the apples and the farm it felt like this vibrant part of the setting got short changed in book space because of what happened after it Several large plot elements got told in a summary sort of way instead of shown in the same sort of richness other parts were described earlier in the story This gave me a sort of sense that the story unraveled at the end instead of wrapping up muchSo ultimately the book bothered me than it pleased me despite some great momentsThanks to the publisher and NetGalley for a free review copy A favorable review was not reuired ZOOM The Global Race to Fuel the Car of the Future rugged hills of nineteenth century Appalachia Upon arrival she finds herself in the home of her late husband’s cousins three brothers who make a living by brewing hard cider on their three hundred acre farm Yet even as a stranger in a foreign land A.

review Sons of Blackbird Mountain 103 Ven has hope to build a new life in this tight knit familyBut her unassuming beauty disrupts the bond between the brothers The youngest two both desire her hand and Aven is caught in the middle unsure where and whether to offer her affection While Haakon is bold and passionate it is Thor who casts the greatest spell upon her Though Deaf mute and dependent on hard drink to cope with his silent pain Thor possesses a sobering strengt. Update to my previous review Still one of my all time favorite novels I just listened to the audiobook of this wonderful story and the narrator did an outstanding job with the accents of the characters She captured the feeling of this story beautifullyThis beautiful book cover hides a story within its pages that is even exuisite than the artwork The author s writing style drew me in from the very first paragraph and I was transported back in time to watch this heartachingly tender story unfoldThese characters were absolutely captivating From the first time Aven met the Norgaard brothers and uncertainty ruled her thoughts to the sarcastic uips that Haakon threw into conversations to the emotions and connection that begin to build between Aven and Thor I was caught up in this family s story and did not want to stop readingI loved that the main character Thor was deaf Aven and Thor s story was even meaningful to me as I watched both of them work to overcome the barrier between them The author tackled some weighty subjects in Sons of Blackbird Mountain and she did so with grace and a realistic touchI loved this story from start to finish and eagerly await the second book in the seriesI received a complimentary copy of this book All opinions are my ownYou can read this review on my blogI read an early beta copy of this novel Wow Loved loved loved this beautiful story
