Sixteen year old Maggie Bennet's life is in tatters Her mother has disappeared and is presumed dead The next thing she knows her father has dragged Maggie away Faithful Faithful MOBI #224 from their elegant Newport home off on some mad excursion t Faithful by Janet Fox tells of Maggie s story as she travels halfway across the country to find her mother A mother that disappeared one day that left both her father and her different She is taken out of her comfort zone despite many of the townspeople not liking her mother therefore not her as well because she was not like the others impulsive or somewhat sane But Maggie wants to change all that with her debut which is why she needs to find her mother and be back by August However Maggie is in her a surprise because she may not be leaving Yellowstone after all Her father s business is in ruins and her grandparents have pretty much cut him off so he hopes to make a new life here Maggie doesn t want and the only way she can leave to return home is to marry her way out Or will she make a name of herself by herself And Tom a man really who captured Maggie s attention since the first timeFaithful was a book that took me uite a while to finish Never a good sign My main problem was Maggie the novel s protagonist and focal point Another bad sign She reminded me of someone I knew constantly whining moaning or groaning about something or another I typically am the listener to these pity stories and it just grates on your nerves sometime Maggie or this person did not know what they truly wanted If they did then they would have not complained about not having something and then complaining about it when they do eventually get it There is no win win situation for these types of personalities Did Maggie mature Some might say sure To me it s pushing it Give anyone a big enough scare and they are bound to changeEven then the majority of the other characters have no substance as well They run on two different temperatures hot or cold Mean or nice Not even Tom the male lead whom I suppose was going to swept me off my feet was much of an asset to the novel I did however like one or two characters but they were secondary characters so I did not see them as often as I would have likedThe setting and the imagery were lush and vivid but it was not enough by itself Give me a bouuet of flowers and I will admire its beauty but that is all Give me a story behind the flowers and I will love it even after it wilts

Faithful Faithful #1

Ingly stubborn handsome Tom Rowland the son of a park geologist and to the wild romantic beauty of Yellowstone itself And as Tom and the promise of freedom capture Maggie's heart Maggie is forced to choose between who she is and who she wants to b I wanted to like FAITHFUL with its gorgeous cover and promising tale of self discovery in Yellowstone Park I m not a historical fiction fan but I do love me the inspirational beauty of nature Unfortunately lackluster writing plot and characters drag this book down until it is very difficult to likeNearly all of the characters in FAITHFUL are either unbelievable or unlikable For lack of better words Maggie is simply put a pain in the ass a spineless spoiled and petulant girl forever waffling between her childish desires of admittance into the gossipy fashionable worlds of New England society and her goal of being a young woman mature enough to be included in her family s decision making process News flash sister you won t be treated as an adult if you keep on being so self centeredTom the love interest is introduced to us as a tall good looking light eyed young man with an enigmatic smile who immediately makes our heroine feel clumsy and unworthy Excuse me for a moment while I chuck something across the room And pardon me when I don t believe the supposed attraction between the two If any guy as perfect as Tom is purported to be falls for someone as inconsiderate and selfish as Maggie then well he s really as far from perfect as can getEually frustrating is the slow flashback laden plot The flashbacks are meant for us to see what Maggie s mother was like and why Maggie feels so conflicted about her as she does But in the present time there is little that moves the story along A story of self development needs to find the right balance between the past and the present and this one was bogged down with too much of the past to work effectivelyFAITHFUL wasn t the book for me because it combined the parts I like least about YA lit into a single book but fans of historical fiction might have patience with Maggie s story You might be better able than me to appreciate the intricacies of societal rules of the time as well as drink in the luscious idea of the setting

O Yellowstone in Montana Torn from the only life she's ever known away from her friends from society and verging on no prospects Maggie is furious and devastated by her father's betrayal But when she arrives she finds herself drawn to the frustrat One of these days I will stop listening to the blurbs in catalogs because they always let me down I ordered this one specifically because the publisher s blurb compared it to Eva Ibbotson who I completely and wholeheartedly adore And not a lot of authors or books get compared to her at least by the publisher all of whom are desperately trying to convince you that this book is the next Twilight and you should buy it RIGHT NOW so I couldn t resistIt was a good book But that s it good Maggie was whiny her father was lame Tom was nice and Graybull was mostly annoying Maggie s reaction to Yellowstone was interesting I guess but I remain immune to the allure of the West real or metaphorical and I would have much rather watched Ken Burns documentary on the National ParksThe big secret about her mother which I won t reveal because I am a nice person so forgive me for my awkward vagueness coming right up would have made a fantastic book rather than half a chapter I find it incredibly hard to believe something that juicy happened to a member of Maggie s social circle and she never heard about it even years later daughter of the woman in uestion or no That is the best gossip ever and I refuse to buy that Maggie lived her entire life with the same small group of socialites and not one of them let anything slip ShenanigansIt wasn t entirely fair of me to pick up Fox s debut and expect Ibbotson but life isn t fair Take it up with your publisher Janet

    When I first read the blurb for Faithful I had no idea it was set in the beginning of the 20th century  Nor did the cover really illuminate this fact as the dress's design was just ambiguous enough to be considered 'popular' now  I like it better for the fact its set in 1904 and not in the last two decades  For what I think Fox was trying to convey in the book it needed to be set during a time when parts of the count
