    One thought on “Crow Hollow”

    1. I had high hopes for this book, because I love the setting and the plot sounded really interesting Unfortunately, it s one of those surface level, rather vapid books that offer very little beyond basic entertainment which is fine, but I like a bit to sink my teeth into and there were just too many moments that made me roll my eyes to take it seriously The characters were flat and I JUST DIDN T CARE about their developing romantic feelings which seemed to always supersede the rest of the obvious [...]

    2. Set in the late 1670s in Puritan New England, Michael Wallace has produced a well written, adventurous tale that includes a mystery, a bit of romance, and a conspiracy that leads to murder, betrayal, and unimaginable heartache The historical details surrounding the Massachusetts Bay Colony depict many of the religious customs of the Puritan settlers in Boston Also brought to life are the devastating effects resulting from King Philip s War Wallace easily kept me invested as James Bailey, an agen [...]

    3. In 17th century New England, Puritan widow Prudence Cotton lost her husband Sir Benjamin in King Philip s War and was herself held captive Nine months after her rescue, Prudence despite her family s insistence knows her daughter Mary, now 3, is still alive, although still in the clutches of the same Nipmuk Indians who burned so many villages, tortured many, and kidnapped Prudence Desperate, the young widow sees a way to find her daughter a long shot and only at great peril Prudence s hope comes [...]

    4. This book is a dramatic, poignant look at Colonial life in early New England I was completely enthralled from start to finish.First, the author s research is impeccable He clearly knows his facts I grew up in Massachusetts, where early English settlements and Puritan life is something of a backdrop to our existence Rarely, though, did that history feel alive than it did here The author uses his knowledge and understanding of Puritan times to build a believable plot, played out by characters wit [...]

    5. What cheer I like reading history books but so far mainly focussed on English books in Henry VIII times and around This is something different In 1676, an unlikely pair a young puritan widow Prudence and an English spy agent of the English Crown James, journeys from Boston harbour across a land where greed and treachery abound They travel into Indian territories to find out on the murder of Prudence s husband and searching for her daughter Mary, who is supposed to be taken into an Indian tribe, [...]

    6. This was largely a waste of my time A story with potential, but poorly executed The characters have no real depth, the writing at a high school level, the descriptive phrases are cliches and hackneyed And for an author who is reputed to research his subject there are errors which are evidence to the contrary For example at one point the protagonist and her companions are described as hiding behind bales of hay There were no bales of hay in 17th century New England Baling hay became an agricultur [...]

    7. I got this book through Kindle First I am a fan of historical fiction, and this seemed like an interesting take on the pre Revolutionary time in America I enjoyed the overall story, though I found the main male lead to be hard to connect with I understand patriotism, but his seemed to have very little basis I felt that the female protagonist was inconsistent she s puritanical, but not all the time It was hard to believe So, again, overall interesting read, but just ok.

    8. review originally posted on Elizabeth Editorializes, my book review blogI enjoyed Crow Hollow quite a bit I tend to like historical fiction, and the early colonial American era is particularly appealing to me, so I had little doubt that I would find at least bits and pieces of this book to my liking.According to the About The Author page at the end of the book, Michael Wallace was raised in a small religious community in Utah and later moved to live in New England as an adult Neither of these th [...]

    9. Crow Hollow by Michael Wallace takes a searing and insightful look at the new world of the American colonies in the 1670s, harsh and realistic not only in its portrayal of the period and the people who populated the story but also the savage and treacherous conditions which surround them Like any good book, it is an exploration of a new world with which few of us are accustomed to, yet visited by a feeling of familiarity only made possible by Michael Wallace s fine writing.Few books I have read [...]

    10. Note to self I should stop reading books about Puritans because I DO NOT get them It s just too much religion for me Besides that, in the 20 ish% that I read, James Bailey seduced a servant, let his companion be abused to achieve his own ends, and creepily came on to Prudence Basically he was just an all around skeevy ass and I couldn t stand him On top of that, I think the audiobook narrator somehow made him seem even worse and her voices were not very good Why would you have a woman narrate a [...]

    11. I think my rating of this book comes down to the characters I didn t like them He s a womanizer She s a prude That being said, I believe that Wallace captured the emotions and flavor of the New England colonies one hundred years before Revolution The plot was interesting as well, but a bit slow in spots again I blame my dislike for the main characters And a bit predictable I mean, you know from the beginning that these two are going to wind up together And that never becomes believable to me.

    12. I was disappointed with this story, it had potential but in my opinion didn t deliver I chose this as a Prime First selection on and then added the whispersync narration and listened to the audiobook The writing was not horrible but the dialog was not good, it was often stiff and stilted, unfortunately there s a lot of dialog Sometimes a great reader performance can compensate for a book that might be a little lacking on the two dimensional page In this case I m afraid the reader wasn t able to [...]

    13. Outstanding I received this one of the free monthly books offered to Prime members but I am very glad I selected it I am a history lover and my favorite era is Colonial Revolutionary War America but this was a little before my normal reading.A bit of a thriller, bit of a mystery and a bit of a rollicking adventure, this book delves into the religiously oppressive culture of Puritan New England I knew a little of this period but this book really adds a great deal of depth to the era and the peopl [...]

    14. At first, I wasn t sure I d like the story but once I started reading, I found it to be a gripping period piece full of adventure, intrigue and a touch of romance The characters were engaging and the story had a steady, even pace The descriptions of New England life during the 1600s highlighted the cruelty endured both by the settlers and by the native Americans whom they displaced It also showed the greed and treachery that was visited upon Native Americans and settlers alike in the quest for e [...]

    15. They say good books open up new worlds, and that s exactly what Michael Wallace does, in Crow Hollow He takes us to the new world of the American colonies, where wilderness is the backyard, where Puritan conventions and punishments are almost as cruel as the conditions and where once friendly Native American neighbors are almost extinct after a bloody war.Every time I read a Wallace book, it takes me a couple days to return to normal after traveling to the worlds he creates which are always tran [...]

    16. I always find a peek into the early history of this young country thought provoking So often overlooked the struggles of the early settlers bear testimony of mankind s vicious side as well as the perils and hardship of life in primitive and often cruel conditions unimaginable in the comforts of today Seldom considered the reality that even today living conditions in some parts of the world are not far removed from those described In this tale of survival of the fittest or in some cases the victo [...]

    17. One of my friends asked why all the books I rate on are a 4 or 5 star I haven t been on in a while because I only come here to rate books I have fallen in love with So if I take the time to write a review on a book, you can bet I loved it, fell in love with the characters, the story and hoped the reading would take longer so it wouldn t end and then mourned the ending of it And of course, for me, they all have to have happy endings Cross Hollow is one of those books The plot is fairly predictabl [...]

    18. I picked up Crow Hollow because it was cheap at.99, and it sounded interesting The book centers on James Bailey, an agent of the British Crown, as he arrives in Boston in 1676 to investigate the murder of another agent, Benjamin Cotton He has a Native American partner with him, to help him question the Nipmuc tribe, the tribe responsible for the murder of Cotton and most of Crow Hollow His partner is killed, and he winds up teaming with a Puritan widow the widow of Cotton, incidentally who was o [...]

    19. Meh I can tell a lot of research went into this one, and it was honest for the time period as far as the characters views on Puritans versus Quakers versus Native Americans versus everyone who isn t exactly like them The mystery part was fairly well done The romance part felt tacked on just to get a sex scene that felt completely out of place and out of character I just wasn t buying that part it felt like a contemporary romance trying to cram itself inside a historical mystery The narrator does [...]

    20. Compelling setting details, but I didn t really care for any of the characters The villain s and the heroine felt cardboard, while the protagonist felt a little self inserty He wasn t as boring as the other characters, but neither did I really love spending time in his head Interesting storyline and good setting.Most notable thing is this reads like a debut novel I was surprised to learn the author has 20 novels under his belt If you d told me it was written by a gifted teenager I d be impressed [...]

    21. I can t believe this was written by an established author with nearly or could be by now 2 dozen books published It read like a first timer It was melodramatic most of the way through, the characters were pretty shallow and it never had me on the edge of my seat The synopsis made me think it would be suspenseful and gripping No, none of that And scenes that could have been intriguing were so stunted, nothing was properly fleshed out and over quickly Every thought or action from a character was [...]

    22. I found the setting of this book to be extremely interesting as the war with the Indians is not something I have ever read much about in either fiction or non fiction.I also found the character of Prudence to be extremely interesting with her experiences with being an Indian captive.I also appreciated that Wallace did not gloss over any of the brutal nature of not only the crimes but also the justice system from time period.Overall definitely an enjoyable adventure story with a dash of romance.T [...]

    23. I enjoyed this book in the most part and I particularly liked the lead up to the end chapters in its thrilling pace Although I m not a fan of brutality, I think we could have had a complex emotional connection if we had had a native American perspective This could have been an amazing novel if the same detail and emotion experienced in the hangings, had been expressed throughout A talented author and I would be happy to read any of his other novels.

    24. This was quite a satisfying historical fiction novel Puritan Boston New England has always fascinated me ever since, years ago, I studied the history and artwork of some of the first cemeteries in eastern Massachusetts Most easily accessible narration about the time period, however, is based around the Salem witch trials, of which I m quite tired This is the story of Englishman James Bailey who, in December 1676, is emissary for England s King Charles, who has come to Boston to find out why Benj [...]

    25. I won, Crow Hollow by Michael Wallace, in a GoodReads giveaway I received a trade paperback of efficient, independent design, consisting of 335 pages of typical paperbook quality, and a serifed font with generous margins Easier to read than smaller fonts, with breathing space for the eyesCrow Hollow is set in colonial New England in the late seventeenth century and contains two main characters Prudence Cotton is a Puritan who has lost her husband Sir Benjamin in King Phillip s war, in which she [...]

    26. Rosemary Benson is one of the best Audiobook Narrators working today This is another treasure of Michael Wallace s she has brought to our ears This tale of 1676 New England is historic in its landscape and its social descriptions of the time The religious control of the population and fear of a far off King Philip sets up a story of treachery and deception.Prudence Cotton has lost her husband and believes her child was taken by the Nipmuk tribe Others say the child was dead, but a mother knows A [...]

    27. ahhhhhh I really loved this book was sad when it was over I love books where you care about the characters so much that you find yourself thinking about them at odd times when you re not even reading the book.This was a work of historical fiction that was great from beginning well, after forcing myself through the first couple of chapters while I got used to the language of colonial New England to end Often, the ending of a great book will disappoint, but this felt as good as much of the story a [...]

    28. Bringing Life to HistoryIf only American history teachers in school would have added interesting, detailed human stories to their litany of boring names of events and chosen heroes, I may have developed a great interest in history.Only as a much older senior adult have I finally discovered a personal connection to history and it s people through historical novels, such as Crow Hollow by Michael Wallace.I cared about his characters, and experienced the suffering, the joys, the culture, and deep c [...]

    29. I am so glad that I decided to read this book despite some of the reviews I read This book contained all of the things I love in a good novel It had adventure, history, intrigue, amazing characters and a great ending I admit that I don t read a lot of male writers and I tend to stick to the females for the most part I might have to change my tune and branch out a little after reading Michael Wallace s work For reference, the first third of the book I struggled a little getting to know the chara [...]

    30. This book tried to be both a historical fiction novel and a tame bodice ripper It was very very tame in terms of explicit content but kept a sexual tension the whole time, which felt awkward The historical novel part of the book fared much better in my opinion, with an extremely interesting premise, time period and conflict But the villain was obvious and the details weren t compelling It read like someone s first novel, to be honest Shallow main characters the preacher s wife, Anne, was actuall [...]
