"I loved this book, and am so glad I won it. On one side we have woman's rights and free speech (subjects near and dear to my heart) and on the other side we have two people who just can't figure out what they need in a relationship.

"I enjoyed the characters and story line. Will is every girl's ideal and it's so refreshing to read about a bunch of good and down home kind of people. I expected a happy ending but don't want to ruin it for other readers. I will just say I was very satisfied with the tale when I finished the book."

'"I am reading The Storyteller for the second time already! Between the chicken, the bear and the daughters and the tension with Vicki and Will, it's a highly entertaining read. Beyond that, there is a strong storyline with a fantastic heroine and great supporting characters. The writing takes me from the 21st century and into the 19th and I dream of wide open spaces, big blue skies, small town life and my very own Will Harrison! Congratulations on this wonderful novel, a favourite of mine by far!'  Eve Foster

"The Storyteller packs a punch of girl-tude - historical Wild West style. Strong characters tell a story of independence in soon- to-be new state Wyoming, and take us on a romantic, intriguing and action-filled path - the 'placard for women's rights type' of action, as well as the swash buckling heroism type. Nice conversation between the two, I thought. Explored within the realms of its 19th century setting, complete with Pashley's sweeping landscapes, and quirky details of the town of Feather Ridge, it is a conversation that is dealt with in sincerity and conjures a bucket load of feisty, frontier attitude.
     There is a familiar quality, especially in the lead protagonists Vicki and Will, that gives the reader the enjoyable feeling of joining friends for a short but memorable and monumental time in their lives. Rooting for happiness, justice, equality and above all, love, The Storyteller doesn't disappoint, and promises a full set of storytelling emotions - happiness, sadness, shock, and fulfilment with every turning of the page.
      Watch out, a Vicki Carlisle may be coming to a town near you...and she may just bring that contagious Wyoming spunk and independent spirit.'   VANCOUVERgirl

"I found myself reading The Storyteller in one sitting, as I simply could not bear to put it down. It had me riveted from the first word and weeks later I still find myself thinking about certain scenarios that happened in the novel. It was refreshing to read a book that was sweet in its simplicity and empowering at the same time. This is storytelling as it should be. Highly recommended if you want a story you can sink your teeth into.'  Jane Keighley

“I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a piece of historical fiction set during the time of the women's suffrage movement and gives a good insight into what it was like to be a woman in that time, the story uncovers a big secret in the little town Feather Ridge which not only was taboo in those days but still is in many cases. I think the author gave a fair representation of the story and can be an inspiration to women all over.
     Even in this era Vicki is portrayed as a strong, independent, level headed woman and Will a strong, hard working, well mannered man who shows respect for those around him, particularly the women. Although the story touches very lightly on women's suffrage, it is pleasant to see the different way in which women were treated at that time and the development of women's independence.
     The characters were believable and easy to relate to which I think is very important in a good book, but not only that, there was a great range of different characters, all of which were very well described! The book is well written, the story is easy to follow and I could visualise the scene easily. I love a book that draws me into it like that.
     I would highly recommend this book. I will certainly be reading it again and looking out for more by this author. Louise on Goodreads
