This has been on my Kindle for a while and I didn't bother to read the most recent reviews. Had I known it would have such a dreadful ending, I would have passed.

Until the end, I found it a captivating story. The characters were realistic, it had great Civil War depictions and the heroine was a decent person and could stand on her own two feet. Some of the parts I found a little unbelievable or predictable, but nothing crazy.

Then I got to the end. Oh, wait. There was no ending. The book stopped. Two things that drive me to not read an author again are ridiculous grammar/spelling issues and forcing a reader to get another book to finish a story. I enjoy series books but don't want to have to purchase another book to know how the story ends. Individual books should be stand alone or at least it should be clearly indicated you have to buy subsequent books in the series to see how things end.

I really did want to love this story but couldn't for several reasons.
#1 It is very predictable in places which is fine to a point.
#2 The book has several different plots to follow which again is fine, but this book gave no clear climatic event, therefore no resolution which brings me to
#3 There is no closure whatsoever. Again series books are fine, but personally I do not want to purchase one book only to be required to purchase two more just to know how one plot ends. Individual books should have individual story lines and not be so dependent on the rest of the series so I feel I've read a "book" not just the first "section" in a larger book.

So I would recommend this book to anyone the above does not bother :) because otherwise it is a good story. So all-in-all I give "Daughter of Twin Oaks" three stars because its "fine".

Unique story line that is telling two related stories but a rushed ending with no closure leaves you wondering what was the point of the story.

This book is about north battling south and how families survived the slavery issues. Three sisters all differently directed in life, but bound together by family ties. Each had their own direction to go during the war and managed to communicate through mail. The oldest sister left their plantation with some of the slaves and her youngest brother who was still a mere baby, after sending both younger sisters away to an aunt who could take care of them. She was headed to her uncles horse ranch in order to shelter their horses from union and confederate soldiers who would take them because they were valuable race horses. It was interesting & at times exciting how she managed to escape. She took on all responsibility because her father & mother died and her older brothers were in the war. Enjoyed the story so much till I must buy book #2.

Lorraine Snelling writes another excellent historical novel! I am a historian, and Snelling has never disappointed me as she makes history come alive with her well developed endearing characters. I actually read this well over a year ago, but unlike many so-so books, I remember this story well.

In dangerous times, pushed from her planation home in Kentucky, this heroine takes what he can and heads wet. With her are the families precious race horses, and former slaves who had always been part of the family. Life threatening and shocking events happen long before she reaches the beginning of the 'real West', when her 1st plan fails. Contingency plans are not ideal either, and anyone who knows the history of travelling trails west in the mid to late 1800s knows how treacherous it can be. Will her little group survive in tact? Will the pampered thoroughbreds survive a journey filled with tricky terrain and ever lessening grazing? Although this book is not romance free, it focuses first on the love and support of dedicated friends willing to collectively do whatever they can to ensure survival. What will they find at the other end? You'll have to read this sweet, forlorn, touching, survivalist for yourselves!

Definitely an enjoyable book. - I enjoyed reading about what it may have been like during the Civil War - sad yes, but was educational thinking about how some may have felt and how some may have lived.
As some may have said - the book did 'end' - BUT it ended with their deciding to go further West - Yet to continue, this book would have been really really longer.
So actually the original story was told along with stories of her two sisters and brother - but her journey to an uncles did end so that was the actually ending of This book.
Worth Reading & I did not want to put it down. Glad this was Saturday because that is what I did today - I read this book.

Excellent Series both the story, the setting and the historical accuracy made me dive right in. So much of the brilliance of this popular author stems from her ability to put you in the story. Her italic type where you are in the characters mind is often exactially how I think along spiritual lines. So it is a really safe place to learn about history, family dynamics, adventure, romance and also both sides of the Civil War. Having read all of the books in this series it was refreshing to have it all tie together. I am a huge fan and delighted to have found her work. I would like to give more stars...but they only give you 5.
