The Devil on Her Tongue (2014)
language
English
4.11 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Reading this book was like watching a movie. Something happens all the time and character development is masterfully done. Religion and family ties play a huge role in 17th century Portugal, as would be expected from this time period; however this is portrayed in an unorthodox fa...

review 1: Had I not already read Devil on her tongue, I probably would have given this book four stars. It is well written but I get the impression after only two books of hers, that Holeman's MO stays consistent. The lead character has a lifetime of struggles then at the very end their...

review 1: I read this novel in anticipation of my upcoming trip to Morocco. The story is wonderful, and the descriptions of Morocco and its people are excellent. It is the story of Sidonie O’Shea, a woman from upstate New York who lives a quiet life. She is drawn to travel to Morocco fo...

English

review 1: I really enjoyed this book, and Linda Holeman has a way of drawing her reader into the setting of her novel and into her character's mind. Her descriptions of her main character's surroundings makes you envision the setting and the first person narrative is written thoughtfully,...

language
English

review 1: There are elements to this story that were very promising, and initially drew me to this book. The main backdrop to the story is the emancipation of Russian serfs in 1861 by Czar Alexander II. The novel highlights the struggles of not only the Russian nobility that suddenly lost ...

language
English

review 1: The novel is set in Russia in the mid 1800s, during a time of great upheaval within the traditional Russian way of life. The emancipation of the serfs by Tsar Alexander II has created an atmosphere of tension and uncertainty for both peasants and nobility. We follow the story of ...
Gouden saffraan (2009)
language
English
3.8 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: The Saffron Gate could be discarded as an improbable and overwritten fantasy, far too light to take seriously. But that would I think be a mistake. I enjoyed this book, it moves ahead with feeling and pace, and at its heart there is a respect and love for Morocco and for ...

review 1: I am not Holeman's target audience. There is very little I liked about this book. I liked the colourful cover. I liked that I could imagine the scenes in the souks, because I recall them firsthand from my time in Qatar. I liked that it was relatively easy to read and follow. ...
In a Far Country. Linda Holeman (2008)
language
English

review 1: I sort of enjoyed two other books by this author. But this one was just a romance, and I don't like romance books. If you like romance, you would probably enjoy it. I kept wondering why I was finishing it -- well, it's because I most always finish books that I start. Unfortun...
