Setting: Buffalo Valley, North Dakota Sensuality Rating: 3
InDakota Born, veteran author Debbie Macomber introduces readers to the town of Buffalo Valley, North Dakota, a struggling farming community. Buffalo Valley is dying. But its citizens won't give up on the town where generations have lived, loved, raised families, worked hard, and died. When Savannah-born Lindsay Snyder decides to accept the teaching position in Buffalo Valley, she brings a breath of fresh air with her. Lindsay is trying to escape a stalled romance and learn more about her family, especially her grandmother Gina, who lived her entire life in the tiny town. Buffalo Valley has its share of characters, including Hassie Knight, the matriarch of this small community; Buffalo Bob Carr, the ex-biker who won the local watering hole in a poker game; and Gage Sinclair, the handsome farmer whose roots are deeply planted in the fertile soil of this North Dakota village. But Gage refuses to believe that Lindsay will find any reason to stay so far from the bright lights of the big city she recently called home. And Lindsay despairs that Gage will never comprehend that she has the best reason to remain--love, for him. With its many story lines,Dakota Bornis more novel than romance, but Macomber's loyal enthusiasts and those new to Macomber's magic touch will be rooting for the little town that won't say die.--Alison Trinkle
Looking forward to the next book Enjoyed reading this and look forward to the next book in the triology. Have liked all of Debbie' books, that I have read.
Reasonably good Thought this was reasonably okay, but not great. It was a little too similar to her other books, and really didn't say anything all that unique. But it was enjoyable, like eating cotton candy--You're happy when you're reading it, but if you think back on it, you just shrug.
You might want to try a much better summer read that I absolutely adored, called [[ASIN:0385340656 Pieces of My Sister's Life]]. Or buy the two books together, like I did, and compare good writing to great writing...Enjoyable I am from North Dakota and that's why I decided to read this book. I enjoyed it every much. I read to take me away, I read for entertainment and enjoyment. And I got both out of this book. I would highly recommend reading Dakota Home, which I thought was even better and plan to read Always Dakota and Buffalo Valley.
