Anxiously Awaiting Abbie Ann!  Dec 11, 2009
Sharlene MacLaren is my FAVORITE author in the world! No other author is more inspiring, captivating or entertaining!

I have had Maggie Rose for several months and put off reading it so that there wouldn't be too much of a wait for Abbie Ann. I couldn't put the darn book down once I picked it up, so here I am anxiously counting the months down until April! SEEMS LIKE AN ETERNITY!

Maggie Rose is such a heart-wrenching story. It makes you appreciate all that you have and yearn to do more for others. The will-she-won't-she romance between Maggie Rose and Luke is awesome. I love how MacLaren is able to work in God's plan so effortlessly. I always leave her books feeling so inspired and nourished in my faith.

I will be sad to leave Sandy Shores behind, but look forward to a new group of "friend" in Wabash, Indiana!
Maggie Rose  Dec 4, 2009

MAGGIE ROSE is the second book in Ms. MacLaren's The Daughters of Jacob Kane series, but it easily stands alone. I enjoyed getting to know Maggie Rose, and all the other characters in this book. Luke is the stuff dreams are made of, strong, handsome, caring, and creative, and I couldn't help but fall in love with him. And the orphans...if only I could give them all a home.

The writing is strong, the story impeccable, with characters that become real one the page. This is a story that will move your heartstrings as you grow to love the children. MAGGIE ROSE is a strong story, that will stay with you. And the ending is simply delicious.

Maggie Rose by Sharlene MacLaren -- LOVED IT!  Sep 6, 2009
Ms. Maclaren is a master storyteller. Each character is beautifully created and WILL stay with the reader for weeks after the final page is turned. Whether you are a parent or not, whether you are married or not, you will love Maggie Rose, the character, and Maggie Rose, the book.

The second installment of The Daughters of Jacob Kane Series, finds twenty-year-old daughter of Jacob Kane taking off for New York City. Maggie's intentions aren't to become famous, however. Her desires lead much deeper. God has led her to help in a refuge (Sheltering Arms) for street children. The children in this era are much like the children living on the street today, but with a twist. Because of the time period (1904), these children board the orphan train to find homes, and Maggie and a handsome young reporter find they have a great deal more in common than their shared love for the children.

Maggie Rose has a common thread running through it that had me returning to it rather than to the remainder of books in my reading stack. I often read multiple books simultaneously and love to offer reviews and book chats for my students and colleagues. This book offers hope for a situation that is still with us today. As a bonus, it gives the reader a healthy dose of reality AND a way to deal with some of the most harsh situations we can imagine. I loved it, and that's a hard sell for a reader who is NOT a big fan of historical fiction. But, this one ... it's special. Can't wait to go back and nab the first book in this series. And of course, I'll have to have the third. Thank you Sharlene MacLaren for this great read!
Love on the Orphan Train  Sep 2, 2009
1904. Maggie Rose is the middle daughter of Jacob Kane. She's spunky and innocent at twenty years old when she leaves her family's home in Sandy Shores, Michigan in response to God's call to work with orphans in New York City.

Upon settling in at her new job, Maggie Rose is appalled by the painful pasts of many of the children at Sheltering Arms Refuge. Though she misses her family, she's amazed by her immediate response to the unfortunate orphans. Each of the children touches Maggie Rose's heart in a special way, and she finds herself loving them all with whole-hearted love and compassion.

Luke Madison is a news reporter who's recent losses have left him cynical, hard, and obsessed with finding someone to blame for a tragic shipboard fire that took the lives of over a thousand women and children, including his own aunt and his adored fiancée. His editor firmly removes him from the story that's too close to his heart, and hands him an assignment covering the city's street orphans--starting at a family-owned and operated orphanage called Sheltering Arms Refuge.

Between Maggie Rose and the handsome reporter springs up an instant, indefinable animosity...and unwelcome attraction. She needs to focus on her ministry with the children. He's still in love with a memory. She can never give her heart to a man who doesn't share her love for Christ. He holds God responsible for his pain and loss. Even the orphans' sad fates give Luke more reason to turn his back on his Creator.

In this second volume of The Daughters of Jacob Kane, the author paints a vivid picture of caring and compassion, of obedience and dedication to the call of Christ, of love and loss and love renewed. Sharlene MacLaren's ability to breathe warm, heart-pumping life into her characters is key to the success of her wonderful tales. Maggie Rose is without a doubt character-driven, yet an equally strong, believable plot helps keep the pages turning and the reader's interest and emotions invested right up to the last line of the last page. Within its pages is a masterpiece of storytelling that contains all the essential ingredients: mystery and suspense; poignancy and pathos; love and romance; humor and heart.

Maggie Rose is an enlightening ride on the early nineteenth century orphan train. By the last rail station, the reader's heart is waylaid and held hostage by the children, captivated by the innocence and fervor of young Maggie Rose, and forever lost to the journalist who didn't want to be a part of the story.

Don't miss this one...
