Format: Kindle Edition. Verified Purchase.

Good fun read, written in an amusing fashion but I have to say I found the continued use of inappropriately placed question marks really annoying. Also the use of the word too when it should have been to, which I see a lot of in books occurred a few times but that wasn't as much of an issue. If it hadn't been for the question marks, I would have given 5 stars. A bit more editing and this would be a great book but it was a freebie so can't complain too much.

Authors note: The book has been completely re-edited since this comment was posted.

Steve asked me recently what I was reading, Martin Luther King's autobiography I said, he went on to say I could download a few of his books if I wanted so I said will do, so while I was reading the MLK auto i decided to have a quick peek at Market Lads read a couple of pages to get the jist of the book, well a couple of pages turned to a couple more as I started to get into it and eventually carried on and read it to the end, as Steve and I are the same age I could identify with a lot of the 80s references, really enjoyed it. Sorry Mr King but I'll be right back with you!

Format: Paperback.

This is a shoot from the hip story about a week in the life of an eighties teenager looking for as good a time as he can manage. The book is what you may call less than PC littered with sexism and unbelievable chauvinism yet the whole thing rings so true for that period. Believe me you will feel sorry for all the women in this guys life including his mother. I thoroughly enjoyed the read and it is just as well I am not easily shocked by bad language and some of the questionable goings on. I can only hope the author has grown out of the despicable behavior demonstrated in the pages but then some people never grow up. In truth I hope he hasn't.

Saving Eden

SAVING EDEN featuring WARD THOMAS. An Ecology Romance. New Edition.

The Small Town American Girl. The Englishman, and the Frog!

Amazon review 5 stars; To generate that level of emotion in a reader in respect of a fictional character is a brilliant achievement on the part of the author.

Amazon review 5 stars; An entertaining read which I highly recommend if you want a charming romance that is a little bit different.

“There is a conflict in every life called Love.

A conflict as old as the Garden of Eden.

A contest between right and wrong

Within this battle of Love, every human being has a part."

She's an All-American girl from Harlan.

He's a world-renowned ecologist from England.

Who Knew?

How were they to know their paths would cross in such a strange way?

Was it fate or folly?

How can falling in love be so easy, and yet so hard?

They are just hoping they can stop the road being built, before it's too late.

Or at least before they both fall harder than they've ever done before.

Alone they are one voice. Together, they are Saving Eden.

A captivating and fascinating thought provoking read!

Ward Thomas appear courtesy of themselves (Catherine & Lizzy) and Ward Thomas Music.

Harlan campground, cabins & kayaking appear courtesy of CEO Mr Stephen Foster.

 

Excerpt:

CHAPTER ONE: The Skoolhouse

 

“The marriage is over and done... its back’s broken and its dead in the water Page... and what’s more, I’m getting the hell outta the hock starting right now!”  Eden retorted as they walked into the bar and she headed for an empty tall stool at its far corner. “Hey mister bartender,” she shouted banging hard on top of the counter. “Can we get some water of life over here sir...? I’m celebrating being a single woman again.  Amelia, what’s your poison honey?”

“Oh, come on now, don’t be saying stupid things like that,” Page squawked feeling her feathers ruffled as Eden blatantly blanked her sister and waited for Amelia’s reply.

READ MORE

“I’ll be taking a big ass beer Eden, because I’m a looking for some hot girl fun tonight.” She quipped in her Harlan county twang, concentrating hard into a cosmetic mirror and glossing her gills with fire-engine red lipstick and swishing her long black locks out of the way.

“Hey, have you cut your hair short to look like me Page?”

“Your hair’s long Amelia... whatever do you mean?”  She sniffed, completely puzzled but still looking at Eden.

“If I gave your ass a motorcycle, you’d look straight outta dykes on bikes," she grinned.

Page blatantly ignored Amelia’s sarcasm and continued to look at her younger sister secretly jealous of her slim figure and natural way. “You can save your marriage Eden, it’s not as if he’s slept with every woman in Kentucky.... and I don’t want fighting-talk whiskey, and you shouldn’t either. You know it boils your blood, and you’re a roomful of angry as it is. Get me a Merlot or Pinot Grigio, if they got such a thing, in this second-rate dive,” she stuffily replied looking down her nose on the room decor and its working-class folk, as if she was somewhat higher class.

“Oh... a Merlot or a Grigio.... oh, how simply divine darling? Pah!  I shoulda guessed, how darn typical... you two-buck wine snob. You got champagne tastes on lemonade money,” she implied shaking her head. “You got your nose so high in the air, you’d drown in a rainstorm,” Eden replied in a high-faluted mocking tone, pretentiously throwing her head into the air to mimic her older sister. She flicked her hand through her long curly red locks and grabbed the barman’s attention fully. “Hi honey, do me a double whiskey and water, a white, smarty-pants wine, whatever you lay your hands on,” she whispered. “And a cold beer sir.  But make mine a nice sweet double malt with ice, I wanna treat me really bad, and that’s allowed since I ain’t been out for over ten God-damn months,” she confirmed loudly for her sister’s benefit, charging him into action.

“Hey, angry heads, stop being so damn nasty!  We’re supposed to be having a good time tonight,” Amelia claimed, puckering her lips and finishing off her lipstick duties.

“Halleluiah to that Em, I guess at least somebody’s listening to me for once,” she agreed to her friend and glaring at her sister again. “Shoot!  You just don’t have a clue Page, I just don’t get you’re stupid thinking sometimes.  Now you just go ahead and stop for a second and listen to your crap.  You’re my older kin, and I’m supposed to look up to you and follow your lead.  Learn by your example and you gotta look out for me... steer me from the bad stuff, you get it...?”  She paused. “I thought we was tight... I thought we was so much closer.  You ain’t never got my back and hell, I told you so many times he’s hit me.  You were my first port of call... my one confidant.  If I’d told Mom or Pop ‘bout all of Kyle’s crap, he’d of had him hung, drawn and castrated.

“I think you should have told them way back Eden,” Amelia chipped in.

“Mom’d just kill him straight out. You’re taking his side yet again, just like you always have Marks.  Kyle’s a whoring liar and hell, if he can hit a woman, he ain’t even a man, and that goes for Mark too,” she fumed.

“I’m not taking sides Eden, all I’m saying is ask yourself do you still love him and is it worth another chance.  And as for watching out for you, you’re a grown woman not a little girl no more,” she maintained in her fake refined tone, fiddling incessantly in her bag as the barman placed the drinks in front of them.

“Right, that’s it... time ladies, enough already!” Amelia interrupted. “You’d better stop this damn bitching and bickering and start getting your cracked heads together before I get back,” she derided. “Cos I ain’t sitting here, bored outta ma tree all the night long, listening to you two a-holes, some ways tearing strips from each other. Now you just listen to me real-good,” she rasped anxiously standing up and wiggling her voluptuous chest and frowning like an angry dog left in a car. “I’m going for a cigarette and to powder my bits... and there ain’t no law about that either Page Buckley... I mean all my bits, cos I’m looking for getting some lady-eeeeee action tonight, and no amount of your BS fighting is gonna stop me,” she crowed, openly pulling down on her tight top and re-positioning her ridden black pencil skirt back into place as Eden watched openly smiling.

“I’m glad you pulled them things down honey, we could see clear through to the promised land and your religion,” she teased.

“Oh, shut up Eden... don’t make me self-conscious... I know my clothes are too small. Fact is, I’m just getting a far too fat ass for my own liking,” she conceded, yanking hard at her red blouse that was leaving nothing to the imagination then frantically shaking her shoulders making her huge gold earrings smack against her cheeks.  “I’m too damn chubby. Now you listen to auntie Em, baby doll,” she whispered flicking her long black hair over her shoulders and leaning forward on Eden’s arm.  “You know I wasn’t Kyle’s biggest fan when you gotten hitched honey. That isn’t that I’m advocating him or his ways, or any other God damn SOB man’s either,” she said pointing her index finger at Eden. “Cos as far as this pretty lady is concerned, all of their asses are a whole space of waste. I can get a full engine service and my suds bubbled just fine without their kind,” she brassily retorted to Eden’s laughter. “Oh, and as for you Page, I’m disappointed with your crabby hashing,” she claimed loudly crossing her arms and leaning backwards as a few of the patrons tried to secretly zero-in on her words. “You stick with your sister’s heart and her decision, whatever it may be. That’s a given girl,” she encouraged, slamming her stiletto heel hard against the wooden floor. “Are you hearing me...? That’s just what you’re supposed to do... so you just go right on down and do it girl.  You’re both unbelievable,” she proclaimed. “It’s actually incredible!” She clamped her hands tightly on her hips and swayed back on her heels. “He’s got you both at each other’s throats and he isn’t even here? He’d be lovin’ every spoonful of this badness if he knew, that’s for sure,” she lectured, standing head and shoulders tall and shaking her head. She looked around, clenched her jaw then leaned forward to get close between their ears, then put a hand on each of them making her big backside stick out to greet the quiet, amalgamated, and whispering heads. “Now when I get back, I want this arguing crap put to bed or I’m gone. As for you baby doll... stop actin’ all hissy fit with a tail end on,” she motioned to silent Eden. Page and her sister continued to look daggers at each other but sat deathly silent, as they watched Amelia animatedly walk away. Obstreperously flaunting all her wares for all and sundry. The barman disappeared and the sisters automatically cogged up another gear.

“We’ll that’s what it feels like to me Page, you’re all for him and dead against me,” she raged.  “And as for do I LOVE him? I HATE him!  He is not the same man any more. He’s not the good man I married. Maybe he was never good to start with,” she explained pulling her long red hair into place. “Perhaps it was all part of the big show he put on for everyone’s benefit. Maybe he’s always been bad inside,” she theorized. “All I know is, he changed for the worse. He’s a twisted chameleon and a leopard that’ll never change its spots,” she surmised sipping on her whiskey as the barman walked past again. “He’s a hurtful son of a bitch that dines with the Devil. Do you know he’s put a claim on the house? Our house,” she badgered waiting for a reaction from her sister as Pages eyes widened. She unfolded her arms, then pulling her white blouse down over her burgeoning stomach as her eyes rolled at the startling news.

My wife bought this book as if I am being honest it is not the sort of thing I would normally read. In my view what this book is not, is a romance. I can only liken it to a modern tale by Winston Graham claimed as a romance but everything else you would want to read in a book. I found my self not only hating one of the characters but absolutely loathing him and couldn't wait for him to get his come uppance. To generate that level of emotion in a reader in respect of a fictional character is a brilliant achievement on the part of the author. I loved the characters and loved the story.
This is an excellent piece of work by this writer and I can only say that I am annoyed at the wait for the next part of this story.
Well done.

YEEHAH! Good Buddies.Saving Eden a very well researched eco friendly modern romance. The author has created some wonderful characters against a beautiful deep south backdrop so vivid are they that they would not be out of place in a Tennessee Williams or Harper Lee novel. This reviewer highly recommends this work. A darn good read y'all.

This could be a film. x
I have just finished reading Saving Eden and found it to be both captivating and Enjoyable From the very introduction of the "Baddy" Mr Langdon Stanley Dainty I found myself instantly hating this character with his abrupt and rude mannerisms and personality. The author managed to grasp my attention from the very beginning with good use of the American language. I was impressed by the authors ecology knowledge and this was evident by the in-depth descriptive language used throughout the book. The author managed to inject lots of emotion within me as I read the book from loathing Mr Acid to the sadness at the death of the lovely old gentleman, Charles. The author managed to show the maturity and strength of character in both the children, leading to admiration and inspiration towards Abbey and Jamie. This book has been cleverly written and would in my opinion make a great film with lots of action, emotion, interest and great characters. Well Done. Great job x

Amazon customer on Amazon wrote:

An emotion stirring read!
Saving Eden is not the usual type of book I read, so I started to read worrying that it was going to be some mushy romance novel. How wrong could I be, every time I picked the book up I could not put it down. Wanting to read further and discover more. For me I felt it was an emotion stirring book. I related myself in certain ways to Abby and Eden and as I read more I was absorbed in their characters and story's. I felt the death of Charles really struck a chord with me also. I feel the author has done a fantastic job and I very much hope that there will be a follow up in the near future!!!

I have just finished reading this book, and found it completely entertaining. I warmed to the central characters, and loved their interactions together as well as those of the children. The American dialogue was very well written, and I felt it transported you straight to the heart of the community. The story was endearing, and as the reader, I wanted the ongoing conflict of the Harlan residents resolving. The author appeared to have a great understanding about ecology which is demonstrated by the descriptive writing. A really good and enjoyable read, which I highly recommend if you want a charming romance that is a little bit different.

DOON HILL

El siglo XIX fue una época divertida en Aberfoyle cuando se contaban muchas historias de hadas que vivían en las colinas boscosas cercanas. Para el reverendo Robert Kirk, un interés en la vida mágica de las pequeñas criaturas aparentemente tuvo un final desafortunado. El ministro de la Iglesia de Kirkton de 1685 a 1692 escribió un libro, La comunidad secreta de elfos, faunos y hadas, pero sus revelaciones provocaron la ira de los duendes y fue capturado en Doon Hill. El ministro fue llevado a la tierra de las hadas. Algunos dicen que su cuerpo fue colocado dentro de un árbol en la cima de la colina. Las hadas colocaron un cuerpo sustituto (muerto) en el suelo, los lugareños lo confundieron con el ministro y lo enterraron en el cementerio cercano.

DOON HILL

The 19th century was a funny time in Aberfoyle when there were many tales told of fairies living in the wooded hills nearby.

For the Rev Robert Kirk, an interest in the magical life of the little creatures had an unfortunate end, apparently. The minister at Kirkton Church from 1685 to 1692 wrote a book, The Secret Commonwealth Of Elves, Fauns And Fairies, but his revelations incurred the wrath of the sprites and he was captured on Doon Hill.

The minister was taken to the land of the fairies. Some say his body was placed inside a tree on top of the hill. A substitute body (dead) was placed on the ground by the fairies, locals mistook it for the minister and buried it in the nearby cemetery. This is light-hearted children's book about fairy tales origins and fairy tales every child should know. Fairy tales and fantasies are in everyday life but this book touches on the legend of Doon Hill in Aberfolye and Robert Kirk. A fairy tale with a twist!
