    One thought on “The Shoemaker”

    1. A Regency romance I loved!I'm not normally a fan of Regency romances, but this one may make me re-think my opinion! Romantic without being sugary, and a bit of a mystery thrown in for good measure. A sweet, clean story with a happy ending. There are enough interesting characters to make a terrific series, should the author want to go that way. Definitely worth a read!

    2. God's MercyThe theme of God:s Mercy is woven throughout this novel. A hint of mystery provides a touch of who dunnit which adds another clever touch to "The Shoemaker".I especially liked the description of the shoemaker's shop. It would be fun to stand at the picture window and watch as each pair of shoes is created. I recommend this book for

    3. Sweet Christian romanceThis is a book I must add in print to my personal library. I loved it! A strong presence of Christian beliefs throughout. It isn't a romance story with a strong conflict and constant roadblocks. This is a smooth expression of friendship, love, mercy, and overcoming grief. I really enjoyed the characters and religious elements.

    4. ChristmasI was delighted reading this book. Learning about old times in England. Reading of mercy. You have no trouble putting your self in the ballroom or on the stair case. Lost in the library. I very much enjoyed this book. Well researched. But most of all it was a story of God's mercy and love. Liked the cover and title. It went well together. Enjoy.

    5. Fantastic bookI don't normally like books from this era but this surpassed my expectations. The author has done wonderful research to bring the time to life. I loved the character of Jorie and her family. The shoemaker had a really important role to play in sharing the love of the Lord.

    6. Lisa Prysock incorporates several delightful stories into one marvelous novel. I loved Winnie and Kingston's story, but also enjoyed learning about the shoemaker and his family and Jorie's story. This is a sweet, clean story of love, friendship and faith that I didn't want to end.

    7. Lisa Prysock does it again, the story of Miss Catherine pulls you into the story line and makes you feel like you are in Regency London with her. You'll fall in love as the two main characters dance around each other and end up happily ever after

    8. Good readThis book has enough going to keep the reader I interest for the whole book. I liked the little bit of suspense of who did it.

    9. EnchantingWhat an enchanting and informative book, very exciting learning about the Christmas seasons of the past, and the traditions also.

    10. The holidaysA good readenjoy reading the love storyfelt it moved too faste rich and poorhard too imagine that they mingled as they did

    11. The shoemaker weaves in and out of the story leaving bits of wisdom for all who will heed his words. Beautiful love story drawing the social classes ever closer.
