    One thought on “The Rock Child”

    1. Excellent engrossing read with ideas to think about Good character development and very interesting plot characters I am curious as to why he made Burton a closet Sufi instead of his avowed atheistic beliefs It added nothing to the plot or story.

    2. I recommend this book very highly It is my favorite kind of read It is essentially a character study of the three individuals who are central to the story With that however are enough plot lines I hesitated to say action since it is not an action story even if it was a page turner to keep me interested right up to the last page Though set in 1862 it deals with problems that we unfortunately grapple with yet I ll try additional books by this author.

    3. This book is fun, but it s also meaningful and moving The male protagonist is a musician as well as a Native American Both are crucial to his identity The female protagonist, a Tibetan nun, also finds that her sense of identity and goals are larger than she had imagined I loved the way this book resolved with respect for all the cultures and spiritual paths represented in this novel.

    4. Another great story from Win Blevins Lots of late 1800s western movement historical value woven into the story as well as the societal problems of racism and human trafficking I enjoyed the book.

    5. Historically whimsical fictionIt took awhile to get into the narrator s voice but once I surrendered to his jimmyjoomy the story flowed nicely Loved the good guys and hated the bad guys

    6. THE ROCK CHILDBy Win Blevins4 starsThe old west as it was at timesThe author threw together individuals who once lived and made an interesting novel The story starts out slowly in 1862 and is a little difficult to understand what is truly transpiring, but then as it progresses, the plot unfolds A Tibetan nun, young and untouched, named Sun Moon, is kidnapped and brought to the United States to be forced into prostitution for a white man who purchases her Her owner intends to support himself thro [...]

    8. This is the 2nd book by Win Blevins that I ve read, and I enjoyed the mix of history and fiction In this story, we have 3 or 4 central characters with whom we become intimately involved rather quickly The trials and tribulations of a Tibetan nun who was shanghaied to the US to be sold as a whore, a young, musically gifted half breed Paiute perhaps, though he isn t sure , a bold, adventurer from Britain who has lived his life as a spy and is addicted to opium and other pleasures, are revealed as [...]

    9.

    10. Wonderful blend of cultures come together in an enlightening historical setting.Very well written to appeal to thinjers, histirisbs,Well written to be enjoyed by historians, philosophers, and musicians of all ages Perfect to be discussed in book clubs and reread again and again.

    11. Page turning read set in the wild west and combining historical facts and characters with fiction The descriptive writing is wonderful and the characters have a life that makes the reader care about their story One slight quibble having read an account by one of the wives of Brigham Young, I felt that there was some revisionism going on here Otherwise an engrossing read.

    12. I really enjoyed this book It took a while to really get involved but once I did I couldn t stop reading The characters are well developed and complex Although it is a little lengthy and wordy at times it is a very good read If you like historical fiction this book is a good one.

    13. Beautiful depiction of the heart and spirit.I loved the way the author wrote Everyone will understand having willy woolies in their stomach Beautiful insight into how all humans are really the same inside we just have different outsides I was sorry the story ended.

    14. InterestingThis is the first book of this set I ve read and it is certainly interesting It kept me entertained and I enjoyed the ending All I can say is that you can give it a try and I don t think you ll be disappointed Enjoy

    15. I read this book under the title The Rock Child I loved the book from start to finish I was especially charmed by the beautiful, lyrical prose and the way Blevins used music to move the story along A very creative piece of historical fiction.

    16. The Rock ChildI absolutely loved this book And, it is one I just picked on a whim I don t read historical fiction as a rule, but I will be looking for from this author Who would like it Anyone who appreciates storytelling at its best.

    17. Marvelous writing with lots of soul.This story touches on many topics of the meaning of being human, with all its aspirations, fears and prejudices Life doesn t always give what you want, but will often provides you with what you need.

    18. Absolutely wonderful,I could not put it down One of the best written adventures I have ever had the privilege of reading and living at the same time

    19. Why this book didn t win a Pulitzer is a mystery Not only are there real people like Sam Clemons and Brigham Young, this story grips you with a vice I recommend highly.

    20. Mix of true like story and lot of imaginatioThe story was good but it added lot materials in betweenWith made the story bit lengthyThe end was good and looked to historical

    21. Interesting read and interesting take on the American west, the Mormons Brigham Young and Porter Rockwell , and immigrants.

    22. A story of a Buddhist nun, a half breed and an English gentleman spy writer told during the Virginia City silver mining era The trio met in Hard Rock City, Idaho, and the adventure began there.

    23. FABAGASTA Win has another hit Superbly written, funny and soul searching You will not be able to put this book down.

    24. An interesting and unusual read for me Not my type of genre, but I was intrigued enough to finish it Some thrilling moments Just enough esoteric interest too.

    25. Just a wonderful heartfelt storyI would read this book over and over and I am sure new storylines would come about Not what I had imagined but I encourage all to read it

    26. Imaginative exploration of identity and race, set in the old west during the gold rush This novel will make the reader think, as well as entertain.

    27. A good ReadWas interesting and fun to Read, has a bit of imagination going for it Something to think about for sure

    28. FantasticI loved this book Creative, funny, sad, clever and the most enjoyable book I have read this year The characters are well thought out and the adventure is believable as well as entertaining.

    29. Western Adventure is not my usual genre, but I was intrigued by the cast of characters, and enjoyed the read Blevins did a nice job integrating true life characters with his fictitious ones, and the historical details were entertaining and accurate when I took the time to check certain points Of particular interest was the way racism manifested itself in this time Not sure I would pick up another by this author, but I wouldn t rule it out either
