Race For A Treasure (Book) - 1/23/2009 11:11:29 AM|
This book is fascinating. Definitely a can't-put-it-down story. I laughed at their antics, felt sad when they cried and as nervous and excited as the characters themselves...as if I was right there with them on this exciting adventure!
I recommend this book for teenagers and adults alike. A great read for the whole family.

Loyalty's Haven (Book) - 12/18/2006 8:21:27 PM
Whether you are an avid follower of Robert Whittle’s work or a newcomer to his brand of historical fiction, Loyalty’s Haven will delight even the most discriminating readers. In the third installment of the Victoria Chronicles, or the “Nancy and Dan books” as loyal fans have affectionately dubbed them, readers are transported from current times to the tail end of World War I in British Columbia, Canada and the U.S. Pacific Northwest. As the war trudged on, tensions ran high as needy families desperately sought financial support and emotional aid. As hopes diminished for a swift end to World War I, the world was faced with another harsh threat, a deadly influenza known as the Spanish Flu.
In Loyalty’s Haven, as the disease spreads throughout the region, philanthropist Nancy Wilson attempts to carry on with life as usual. Nancy, a talented singer and master businesswoman, plans her wedding to Dan Brown as she works and schemes to raise money to support service families. Meanwhile, Dan assists the U.S. Coast Guard and the Canadian government to keep the Puget Sound safe from violent rum runners while also keeping his adopted family safe from sickness.
Rich with historical detail and unwavering passion for family and country, Loyalty’s Haven is even more riveting than the first two installments of the Victoria Chronicles. Whittle deftly finds his stride, further developing Nancy and Dan’s relationship while honing in on the desperation of the late 1910s. With a sprinkle of romance and a dollop of history, Whittle’s storytelling style is fluid as he skillfully transitions from one storyline to the next. Leaving room for a possible fourth novel with his ambiguous ending, Whittle masterfully brings his quirky but likable characters together in a magnificent and compelling epic of bravery, commitment, loyalty and love.
For anyone who loves romance and historical fiction, Loyalty’s Haven reigns victorious!
Loyalty's Haven (Book) - 12/4/2006 4:20:57 PM
I am a big fan of both Joyce and Bob and eagerly await all new books and as usual they deliver in Spades. Loyalties Haven does not dissapoint , Dan and Nancy fans. ALthought it's the last of this series it leaves you with good feelings and hope for their future (Dan & Nancy). I can hardly wait to read whatever comes next. I know it will deliver.
I will miss Dan and Nancy but will also enjoy re-reading the series.
Lizzie's Legacy (Book) - 12/28/2004 11:41:52 AM
It's here at last! Lizzie's Legacy continues the wonderful adventures in Mr. Whittle's wonderful way of writing that keeps both the young and the old intrigued. Even my husband (a Tom Clancy and sports car mag. fan) couldn't wait to read each book and get into the next one so he wouldn't be left hanging. Can't wait for number five!
Streets of Hope (Book) - 12/28/2004 11:38:11 AM
Streets of Hope is the third book in Mr. Whittle's Lizzie Series and is just as exciting and fun to read as his other novels. Mr. Whittle writes in a way that really pulls the reader into the story and you feel like you're another one of the characters. It's like having to say goodbye to relatives at the end of each story.
Lizzie's Secret Angels (Book) - 12/28/2004 11:30:54 AM
This is the second book in the series and continues Lizzie's adventures with her friends and growing family. Set in England's dockland area in the early 1800's, it gives one an idea of what life was like back then. A great sequel to Lizzie: Lethal Innocence, couldn't wait to read book three.
Lizzie: Lethal Innocence (Book) - 12/28/2004 11:22:09 AM
Having had the chance to meet Mr. Whittle gave me insight into who Lizzie really is. Mr. Whittle plays out many of his childhood ambitions in Lizzie's adventures. Every chapter is filled with an exciting and new adventure. This is a must read for people of all ages...10 to 100! A great family activity. I couldn't wait to read book two!

Yesterday's ghost's is a darn good title for a book. I love to remember my childhood. There was a 2 year old ghost child that I played with as a child growing up in the hills of Kentucky. I was 5 to 6 years old. I wrote about this child in my book ''Whisper on the Wind''
When you spoke of grampa's pipe in your poem I smiled. I can still smell the strong home grown tobacco from my grandma's pipe. Thanks for sharing.
