    "i have a Christian friend who also likes historical fiction, and his birthday was coming up, and since he's a big reader getting him a book on the topic seemed pretty obvious. I did a quick search online, and a list I found somewhere had 'Until the Robin Walks on Snow' by Bernice L. Rocque, as one of the very top recent works in the genre. I paged through it out of curiosity, and it was well-written. My friend was grateful for the gift, and when he got back to me about it he said he loved it, so if you're into this sort of thing, that seems like one more recommendation for the book."

    "I'm sorry to say that I am not a fan of this novel. I like this genre but I just couldn't really get into this story. I felt like the romance was really forced and the characters were really flat and dull. They didn't really seem like real people to me and the plot was kind of dull. There was no suspense or passion or anything like that. Stay away."

It can be repetitive and really preachy at times, but overall a really good story that has a good message about staying true to your faith no matter what...This is the first book of the Lamplighter Rare Collector's Series.

The questions posed by the people in the book mirror many questions still asked today. Lots of adventures develop from the telling of this unusual love story. Never a dull page.
