What readers are saying
I started the book and couldn’t put it down, it was so intriguing. I thoroughly enjoyed every page of it.
Jacob of Abbington Pickets is a moving story of loss, love, and faith set among the challenges of turn-of-the-century life on the Canadian Prairies. H. C. Hewitt provides a fascinating peek into rural and village life in this period as well as a glimpse of universal human experience in her poignant tale of virtue and redemption.

I read the book in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed the read. This is probably a very accurate portrayal of the pioneer times; the challenges faced, the values held. One fell in love with the characters. It was such a blessing to read this wholesome book. This shows that a book does not need foul language or unseemly acts to tell a fascinating and believable story. Corinne is a very good writer. She leaves one waiting and watching for her next book — books, hopefully!
As I know Corinne, I picked up this book and eagerly read it cover to cover – in one sitting. I can see this book being something that school children would study and discuss the morals of the day and the life in that era. Promises meant something then. Honesty was the life bread of the community. Such a great portrayal of the day. I look forward to future works by Corinne. I’d love to hear more about Jacob’s life and his community.
I truly enjoyed this book! It was a delightful read with a plot depicting interesting characters and wholesome values. It’s wonderful reading a novel published by a friend and I can’t wait for number two!
Finally read your book this week. Loved it!! Great job girl!!!! Had me right from the beginning. Started late at night. Then finished it the next day. Was under the weather so was happy to just relax and read. Although anticipation is not that relaxing!! Haha! When is the next one coming?
Just finished your book! It was AWESOME! When will the sequel be out? Thanks so much, I could envision everything you described.
