Publishers Description
Abbie Ann Kane, the youngest of Jacob Kane's three daughters, is a busy woman. Between running the Whatnot, the family's general store, being active in the Women's Christian Temperance Union, and assisting the elderly citizens of Sandy Shores, Michigan, she has little time for frivolous matters. And those include matters of the heart. When the recently divorced Noah Carson comes to town with son Toby in tow to pursue a shipbuilding business, Abbie Ann tries to keep her distance-especially when his flagrant ex-wife shows up. But God has other plans in mind]]

Fun book...  Jun 5, 2010
Abbie Ann is the youngest of the three Kane girls, and she is a busy woman. She is highly involved in so many different societies and interest's, but not all of them are popular, especially not the Christian Temperance Union. While she tries to help abused women, the Sheriff is kept busy trying to keep her safe from threats.
When Noah Carson comes crashing through her father's store window, it would seem he crashed right into her life, but when she finds out some of the secrets of his past, she wonders if she better stick with her own dull relationship she already has, as it is safe. But when has Abbie Ann ever aimed for safe?
Will the ship builder and the store keeper's daughter fall in love in spite of themselves? This 519 page book is a fun story, although somewhat predictable, I enjoyed it. It covered alot of topics, including why women's rights were not what they stand for today, like abuse against women and voting, simple things we take for granted that we have rights in. It covers divorce and remarriage briefly as well. i hope you will look for this whole series as it was a fun one covering many topics.
The Best Kane Daughter Story Yet!  Jun 4, 2010
My word, this was the best Kane daughter story yet! I don't know how she does it but Sharlene MacLaren just makes each book better with her tender words and beautiful characters!

I think Abbie Ann is undeniably my favorite of the three daughters. She was such a tender hearted young woman with a compassion to make the world a better place. She has an undeniable, strong desire to seek God's will in everything she does. And poor Noah and Toby. I prayed countless times for them. They were the depth of the story along with Abbie's humor and God's grace.

I'm really having a hard time putting my feelings about this story into words. I don't know if it's Noah's situation, similar to my own in many ways, or if it's Abbie's compassion for people and the world and her desire to do God's will, that gripped me the most but, as Abbie Ann would say "oh, for crying in a basket", my emotions are flowing with this story! Abbie's story had me both laughing and crying and made me sad to know that I had to say goodbye to the Kane family. But, Shar's wonderful characters and words and lessons from God will be with me forever more. They will truly be hard to forget.

Thank you, Shar, for creating a beautiful, breathtaking conclusion to a magnificent, riveting series that left me with a wonderful feeling of God's unending love and the true meaning of family and friendship. I highly suggest that everyone read this book, and Hannah Grace and Maggie Rose.It gets the highest of 5 star praises from me, as anything less would be shameful to this amazing author and her stories.
Enjoyable Novel in a Continuing Saga  May 29, 2010
I would like to extend a heartfelt "Thank you" to Sharlene MacLaren and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Abbie Ann" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Author Sharlene MacLaren sets a beautiful stage. In her latest novel in the Daughters of Jacob Kane series, "Abbie Ann", MacLaren's mind's eye creates a detailed backdrop for her heartwarming romance that translates well into words. And she is quite gifted in this area. She makes lovely word choices that are appropriate to the language of the period of history. Her multi-dimensional characters seem to walk right off the pages of this book.

Abbie Ann Kane has a very full life that bustles with constant activity. Her constant involvement in multiple activities makes it difficult for her brother-in-law sheriff to learn who is threatening her. Noah Carson brings his young son to Sandy Shores in search of a fresh start to their life after a betrayal in business and marriage takes with wind out of the sails of this handsome shipbuilder. Their love story is full of obstacles and baggage, but watching it unfold is truly enchanting.

"Abbie Ann" is enjoyable on its own without having read the previous two novels in this series, but it is more enjoyable if you are already familiar with the characters that make appearances from the other books. The lives of the characters previously introduced are chronicled beautifully in this latest effort. I am a bit of a boating enthusiast, so I found the world of boating and shipbuilding to be a fascinating addition to this book.
Review of Abbie Ann by Sharlene Maclaren  May 20, 2010
Review of Abbie Ann
by Sharlene Maclaren

From the cover: When an unexpected incident virtually catapults Noah Carson into Abbie Ann Kane's life, the two feel an immediate attraction that Abbie works hard to ignore. After all, Noah is not a committed Christian, nor does he seem committed to marriage, considering his divorced status. Still, Abbie finds herself drawn to him--and to his son. Will the independent abbie trust the Lord and surrender to His surprising plans?

My thoughts: From the first, Noah caught my attention. I suppose from the horrid things he'd faced: betrayal from his closest friend and wife, loss of all he'd worked for, and the sudden pressure of being a single parent. I loved his obvious attraction to Abbie Ann and how he tried to ignore it, his reunion with his drunkard father, and his complete change of heart once he'd made the decisions he needed to make. He was a contradictory male: confident in his abilities one minute, fighting to keep his chin up the next when events in his life seemed overwhelming.

Abbie Ann was a different story. To me, she was a harder person to love, but she did grow on me. I enjoyed watching the softening of her spirit, although she didn't lose that spirit that was very much a part of who she was. Her determination to keep the presidency of the local women's rights movement showed that she was a strong woman and very outspoken. I liked it when she and Peter parted ways, liked it even more when she fell so much for Noah and his son, Toby, that she gave up that presidency.

All in all, Sharlene kept her promise of another well-written romance story. She's a talented author, and you'd do well, if you enjoy romance, to acquire this third book in the Kane Sisters series (along with Hannah Grace and Maggie Rose).
Another great installment of the Kane sisters  Apr 26, 2010
I really enjoyed "Abbie Ann". I still however, think that "Hannah Grace" is still my favorite of the three. "Abbie Ann" seemed to drag in a few spots, but was still a great read nevertheless. I am defintely a fan of Maclaren and look forward to reading more books written by her.
