I again apologize for going a little off course lately. It was stuff that I needed to unload.
Back to the literature right? Something positive for my life.
I’ve mentioned a few obsessions when it comes to literature. Some of them might be evident like my obsession with hating the mess Stephanie Meyer created or the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. We can add Dee Henderson to this list, more notably, her “O’Malley” series. Follows 7 adults who were in the same orphanage growing up and they all adopted each other and took the last name of O’Malley. There’s 6 books to the series and a prequel.(I don’t want to talk about the prequel) We’re going to run through the 7 books and discuss the main characters. Ready?
Kate Kate totally scores a guy with an English Accent. Way to go, pretty much what every woman wants: an accent. A very close 2nd for my favorite girl.
Marcus He’s the most comparable to my brother. He’s the oldest, feels the most responsibility for the family, nice guy all around.
Lisa I just want to say, that when an attractive, old-school cowboy asks you out. Take it. But when she found out she was the last sister to ask out, I would have been mad too. But still when a cowboy asks you out, especially one like Quinn, you say yes. She’s my favorite out of the girls.
Jack I enjoyed him, but he wasn’t much of a reader. I liked that he was all into a girl with baggage. He’s a jokester.
Rachel eh, I feel like I don’t have much of an opinion with her. I don’t know why. Maybe Henderson, got sick of writing the series, but that doesn’t explain why I liked the last one better.
Stephen Probably the brother that I would most likely date. Again, I like that he was into a girl with baggage. Stephen and Jack are best friends and Stephen is the more reserved one and I just liked him better.
Remember me saying there were 7 of them? One died. I do find it a little odd that they all have jobs like FBI Agent, hostage negotiator, EMT, Fireman, Doctor. I mean really. Can’t one of them have a job like a sales clerk? I do admire each character for holding their own in a desperate situation. Each have their own demons but most kids that are in the system as long as they were, I can see that.
If you do read them, I will tell you that there is a Christian theme throughout the entire series. The writing is not hard. All the books got high ratings on GoodReads. Some people did feel like they were having organized religion on them. On that count I feel that if you go in knowing that there is religion is a major theme in a book, you shouldn’t complain. Now, if you went in not knowing, that’s a different thing.
I originally borrowed these books from my mom and now own a copies of each of my own. They’re not for everyone but they’re easy.
