I have read other Dorothy Garlock novels and enjoyed them very much. I got a realistic feeling for the era of the 1930's in Oklahoma. After 100 pages, I had to give up on this one. It takes place in Oklahoma during the 1930's dust bowl. All of the references to how the Blacks were viewed, the ladies who "lived for" spreading gossip and the bootleggers of "Mud Creek" seemed very realistic and believable. I enjoyed reading this book and have only recently been aware that there are 3 more books that relate to these characters.

As somebody who's read every one of Dorothy Garlock's Old West romances, WITH HOPE was only my second book by her that takes place during the Great Depression. Although it's not at all necessary, I would still highly recommend reading "Ribbon in the Sky" first, since it features Tom's older brother Mike and is simply an excellent and beautiful story in and of itself.

In typical Garlock fashion this story was fast, never dull, and a very good read. While it may not be one of my favorites, any book Dorothy writes is definitely worthwhile. This had some different aspects than the other three dozen plus books I've read of hers. For starters the hero was married, although his wife is mentally ill. There were also many more references to sex than usual, and the language was more foul than in any of her previous novels. I personally had no problem with this, but just wanted to let others know in case you don't like those sorts of things.

Henry Ann was great and her character very well developed. I thought she was kind, smart, and feisty. I didn't get as much insight into Tom's character, but could sense he was a sad, lonely, and nice man nonetheless. Tom's wife Emmajean was not quite sane and I really didn't like her, especially after what she does to their son, who was absolutely adorable by the way. I loved how obvious and strong the connection was between Henry Ann and Tom though. As with nearly all of Ms. Garlock's books, I was left with the feeling of soul mates finally finding each other.

There were a few things that kept me from giving this book five stars. First, I didn't like the fact that Tom was married, even if in name only. Adultery is still that, regardless of how happy you are in the marriage. Secondly, there were so many people, a good dozen or more who are involved quite frequently, that you don't get as much time spent on just the two main characters. Lastly, Tom and Henry Ann are separated for about 90% of this story. Besides a few stolen moments once a week or so, their time alone together was otherwise pretty much nonexistent.

While I don't think this is one of the best stories Dorothy has written, it was still an engaging and entertaining tale and I was so happy for this couple at the end. They were both really nice people in an impossible situation, and my heart went out to them. Especially Tom though, who most of the time did try to do the right thing. Next up in this series is "With Song" featuring Tom's younger brother Hod who you meet briefly in this story. Dorothy Garlock continues to be one of my favorite authors and I will gladly read and recommend just about anything she writes =)

tHIS WAS A GIFT FOR A FRIEND, AND I READ IT YEARS AGO. I NEVER FOUND ANY EXPLICIT SEX OR VIOLENCE IN ANY OF THE DORTHY GARLOCK BOOKS I READ, SO I FEEL CONFIDENT IS CAN ADD THIS ONE DOES NOT HAVE IT EITHER. SHE DOES WRITE AN ENJOYABLE BOOK THAT USUALLY TAKES PLACE IN PAST YEARS, RANGING FROM 1920'S THROUGH 1950'S AND FOLLOWS THROUGH WITH THE FASHION, THE CULTURE, THE SPEECH OF THE TIME PERIOD.

This was my first Garlick book, but believe me, it will not be my last. I would have to put her up there with Nora Roberts! A beautiful story in a time when it would be very difficult to find anything beautiful. Yes, the story of the wife is very sad, but I really could not find fault with the husband, Tom. Very good summer reading!

The first of the Dolan Brothers series was not a disappointment. A little more violence than her other books. Several very unusual situations.I have great respect for this era of history. Looking forward to book #2 of this series.

Really enjoy reading about the 20 through 30 time frame. Enough mystery to keep you thinking really enjoyed the book.

I read all 3 books and really hated to have it end. Each book made you feel you were involved with the characters and you were right there beside them and could feel their pain and joy.

One of my favorite Garlock titles!
