    1. Dana

      This book was not for me. The story took place in the 80's but I felt like I was in the 50's. I found the characters to be unrealistic and the story flat. A bigger fan of Chick Lit may enjoy this. Note: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

      I have to say that I really enjoyed this book by Burnita Bluitt. From the cover, I wasn’t sure what to expect but when I hunkered down to read, I quickly discovered that the story was a combination of things: romance, history, and a tad bit thriller. I enjoyed the language and the detailed description of San Francisco made me feel like I was there at times. There were some surprises along the way that really kept my interest piqued. Readers who enjoy diverse women’s fiction should definitely [...]

      I received this book as a first reads winner.I was interested in reading this book because the GoodReads description said it "is one of the few novels on the market to shine a very urgent, real-world spotlight on the topic of gentrification and urban displacement." I'm fascinated by those topics and was excited to dig in deeper. Unfortunately, the GoodReads description could not have been farther from the truth. In fact, except for a some peppered in comments from the narrator and a brief "Mmm-h [...]

      What an exciting, thought provoking, intelligent, and oh so interesting novel! From start to finish this was an engaging read with realistic and well-documented issues that the author didn't sugarcoat. She has a true gift to paint striking and memorable pictures in your mind of current and emotional events. I have never been to San Francisco and with this fantastic book it was like I was there, breathing the air, visiting all different places,being a part of the community and culture.I stayed up [...]

      A truly beautiful story with a great mixture of history and romance. Having never been to San Francisco myself, I was instantly transported there as Bluitt did an amazing job of bringing it to life for me. The book description that is given, couldn't have been said better without giving anything away so I won't try to summarize it. What I will say, is that I fell in love with Blis' character. She's a strong woman with a loving, forgiving heart. The issues she deals with are very relatable which [...]

      Quiver of the Pure Heart is absolutely one of the most beautiful stories I've read in a very long time. The writing is very well put together with just the right amount of romance, drama, and suspense that kept me captivated with every page turn. I loved all of the characters as they were very unique and well put together but Blis was my absolute favorite. This was the first time I read anything by Burnita Bluitt but I have to say I am very impressed. Her writing style is very intriguing with a [...]

      I received this book through First Reads.I'm sorry, I just couldn't get into this one. I found the story a bit on the boring side. I had considered not finishing on more than one occasion, but I hate not finishing a book. The last few chapters were the most interesting and I still found them to be a bit hoaky. I'm sorry this book just wasn't my cup of tea. It has a beautiful book cover though.

      This was a novel set in 1989 San Francisco that follows the 28 year old Blis Dumas as he becomes a victim of a real estate scheme. As he fights to keep the home, the story explores many different issues as well as details about his personal life. A thoughtful and nicely written story that outlines the issues of gentrification and displacement in the modern day. I am glad I got to read this one, highly recommended.
