    One thought on “The Preacher's Lady (Sugar Maple Hearts #1)”

    1. This was the first novel in the Sugar Maple Hearts series and my first Lori Copeland novel.While short, The Preacher's Lady is filled with good messages. There are themes of forgiveness and reliance on God's timing and plans throughout the novel. Main characters Bo and Elly are in love as teenagers and then Bo disappears for seven years to get a look at life beyond the bogs of Wisconsin. He returns a changed man, but Elly has no forgiveness for him.It was a sweet novel and recommended for reader [...]

    2. Shouting their love to the world from atop a mountain at age 15 guarantees a lifetime of love doesn't it ? Bo and Elly sure think so. At age 17 they are ready to marry as soon as Bo goes off for a month to experience the world. Brokenhearted Elly waits 7 long years for him to come back. Thinking he has either died or married someone else from wherever he went she doesn't expect him to return. She is shocked when he is in the general store and has returned to town and he is now a preacher. Turns [...]

    3. What do you do when life doesn't turn out the way you've planned and people betray your trust? Elly Sullivan finds herself trying to figure that out seven long years after she and the boy-next-door-first-love Bo Garrett come face to face again. Loved the setting of rural Wisconsin, with the cranberry farms and cattle ranches in the 1880's. They worked hard and faced a lot of difficulties with such positive attitudes and fortitude. The theme of forgiveness, for others and ourselves, was illustrat [...]

    4. What can I say? I think I have a book-crush. Bo Garrett is one genuinely nice guy. Granted, I wasn’t the one who spent seven years feeling forgotten and betrayed, but if the misspent years turned him into the man portrayed in this book, then God certainly used Bo’s poor choices for his benefit. Despite his shame, he didn’t get mired in self-pity over the consequences of his choices. Unlike so many other characters I have read, he didn't deny himself because of a misguided sense of unworthi [...]

    5. It’s been a good long while since I’ve read from Lori Copeland, but the enjoyment of reading her books in the past have never left my memory. Which is why I quickly grabbed her first and latest release in the Sugar Maple Hearts series, The Preacher’s Lady.The Preacher’s Lady was sort of a hit and miss for me. The story started off with a bit of quirky humor, and for the most part I enjoyed it. I loved the idea of the book, but it was hard to fully connect with everything. As hard as I wa [...]

    9. The Preacher's Lady is a christian romance that takes place in the 19th century, and it tells the story of two young adults, Bo and Elly, who are in love.

    10. MY REVIEWAn enjoyable, quick read. The characters are well developed, and I expect no less from Lori Copeland. I'm particularly enchanted with Bo, the young guy who needed to spread his wings, but found stench and foulness instead. Then God jerked him back to Himself, and Bo became a preacher.So often Christians think finding God is the end all, and it's happy sailing after that. This novel highlights the kind of journey a young Christian might make when he or she succumbs to the snares of the w [...]

    11. This is the first book in the Sugar Maple Hearts series and it ended up being a good read. The prologue really shows how deeply Elly and Bo loved each other so I felt Elly’s hurt, anger, and bitterness at Bo’s long absence. The author did a good job of building their relationship back up, it felt natural as Elly experienced the push and pull towards Bo. There were some humorous moments in the story, namely the “gifts” that Elly’s fiancé, Gideon, gave her. Bo seemed like such an honora [...]

    12. A short book with heart. Bo who loves Elly disappears for seven years,then returns with hopes to again win her trust and love. A story of loveand forgiveness within a small town. A tale of a young man who leaves the girlhe loves and returns as a minister of faith. An enjoyable light fast read.

    13. The Preacher's lady written by Lori Copeland was a nice read. The setting was 1855 in Wisconsin in the middle of two cranberry farms. This story was about Bo and Elly. I really thought Copeland created a very real character with Elly. She has doubts about her relationship with God because she's grown up in a church that the Pastor screamed and yelled at the services weekly about hell and damnation. At home, Elly heard about God's love and forgiveness from her mother, but that wasn't carried thro [...]

    14. I received a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.Romance, clean, Christian elementsThis was more of a 3.5 for me as a reader. I did enjoy reading it, it was definitely told through Elly's eyes. She has to journey to understand forgiveness, and trust God and her heart. It is definitely a 'moral' story, along with a romance. I appreciated all the family interplay, you felt the close knit parts of the community, and neighbors in this small community in Wisconsin. Elly's journey to underst [...]

His adventure leads to a hard life, which leads to a life of repentance. Elly has moved on with her life and plans to marry Gideon.I have to say, I think there are too many things that left me wondering if this was the second book in a series – it isn’t. For example, what happened to Adele’s husband? Did I miss it? I was also confused about the setting. Their [...]

    20. This book was exactly what I expected from Lori Copeland - a warm and fairly quick read for a winter weekend. I enjoy the historic setting's of Copeland's stories, and especially enjoyed the difference of this book being set in Wisconsin among cranberry farms. This book describes the struggle of relationships over time, acceptance of God, and several of life's hard decisions. I thought the story line was fairly predictable, but enjoyable overall.

    21. This book is not very long but is a good story. The year is 1855, Elly and Bo are teenage sweethearts. Their families are cranberry farmers and live in a religious community. Age 17, Bo goes off to the city for a month. He comes back 8 years later and is now a preacher. Elly is unmarried but is engaged. She had only received a few letters from Bo when he first went away. Even though, she still loves him. Can she forgive him and accept him as a preacher?

    22. I truly enjoyed Bo and Elly's story. From the time they were kids they were inseparable, next door neighbors! Then Bo leaves with no looking back until he is called back to the farm. Elly's hurt by his disappearance but still in love with him. She even gets engaged to someone else Who will she choose in the end?

    23. The Preacher's Lady is the first installment of the Sugar Maple Hearts series. I think it was pretty good with a wonderful setting and fun characters. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. 4 stars

    24. Wonderful story, the first of a series, following a young couple thru the growing up years, and the seeming abandonment and turning away. Slowly and gradually God has His way with them, and brings them back together.

    25. Elly and Bo were madly in love in their youth & they didn't care who knew it. They planned to marry.But Bo wanted to go away alone for a month as a way of having a look at how the rest of the world lived & to gain new experiences before settling down. He got in with the wrong crowd & forgot about Elly. EIGHT years later, not the month that he'd promised to return, Bo finally came back when he heard from his mother that his father was ill. Not only was he eight years late, he was now [...]

    26. As always with Lori Copeland, a great book. Not as humorous as many of her books, but I loved it. Lori always gives an interesting plot and an easy read. I hope she keeps writing for a long time!

    27. I received this book from first reads giveaways and was in no way obligated to write a positive review.I have to say I wasn't sure what to expect with this book. I've read Copeland's books over the years. Some I have enjoyed and others I thought to be a bit dated. When I first started reading this book, that was kind of how I felt – that the writing style and format of the story were set up in a dated format. Some of the wording choices and even the sentence structure was a bit sloppy and fra [...]
