Book Review of The Forever Sky by Janalyn Voigt


Can a young widow with no faith in love, hope for a future with the man who broke her heart?

Maisey isn’t about to give Rob another chance to reject her love. Why should she believe that the man who left town without a backward glance three years ago cares about her? Life had taught her all about broken dreams, and she didn’t want to hope again. If only her young daughter would stop adopting Rob as a father, ignoring him—and her own emotions–would be a whole lot easier.

Thoughts of the woman he’d left behind haunted Rob for three long years. It wouldn’t have been fair to ask Maisey to wait while he mined a gold claim. After making his fortune, he’d returned to his family in Montana’s Bitterroot Valley. Rob was ready to settle down, and he’d rather do so with Maisey. But after their first encounter, it was clear that he’d lost her forever.

Circumstances force Maisey and Rob into one another’s company. They learn, through hardship and loss, that the only way to one another is to surrender first to God’s love.

Based on actual historical events during a time of unrest in America, The Forever Sky explores faith, love, and courage in the wild west.

My Thoughts

The Forever Sky, a powerful title.

You would expect a powerful book to back the title, wouldn’t you? I found a slightly above average western romance that followed a couple whose love had been given to each other and lost by their own choices yet stubbornness followed with a dose of unforgiveness. While I came to enjoy the story there were too many points of view for my liking, six in all, and that makes it hard to like a story that you would normally find two points of view or maybe four. While the switching of characters was somewhat annoying I did enjoy the book for the most part, yet a certain couple of characters I couldn’t stand, they were supposed to like a different character that was more mature, older, but the love interest that they ended up with was somewhat younger and I at times was confused by their part in the story since they so often changed their feelings.

In order to not give spoilers, I won’t say more but I would have liked the secondary romance to have been worked on more so that it could have shown more real change in attitude and feelings then it did — somewhat immaturely.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
