The phone, the phone is ringing...

Love on the Line
by Deeanne Gist

I give this one 4 out of 5 stars.

Over all, this was a good book. I did expect more dialog of the spiritual context, but Love on the Line did have a good story line.

From the books that I have read of Deeanne Gist, she is an engaging writer. She does the research and it shows. From Operating a telephone switchboard, Rangers and Train Robbers to birds and their habitats, Gist has it covered.

It was fun to read and learn about the operation of the switchboard and party lines. I can remember my mom talking about listening in on other conversation and hearing the clicks of people listening in. I loved it when Georgie puts the nosy listeners in their place.

Quite a bit of excitment in this book! Train robberys that make the gang leader sound like Robin Hood. Shooting down telephone lines. The burning of the town ladies contest hats. Hilarious at the part of the guys reactions to a lady not trained in gun use keeping an eye on them.

Even though the startling blue eyes mid way through the book gave the ending away. Still fun to see how it all panned out.

Interesting to learn more about the birds. So many times we don't pay attention to the world around us. Miss Georgie reminds us to slow down and pay attention to the world and wonder that God has given us.

*I received this book from Bethany Publishing.
