I was laughing when I read that. What is Alaskan Architectural Digest? He told the scout that it should feel coastal, and most important, have a dock. As soon as he saw the house on a scouting trip by fishing boat, he knew it was the right place. It looked like the people owned half the town, which they do in the movie. It had this really great presence to it. Coates took pictures of the house, then started using Photoshop.
I added totem poles and stone. I e-mailed the pictures to the executives at Disney. I was showing how we could make it look like it was way out on an island. An effervescent young location scout made multiple visits to the Kanebs. Coates had let them know that their airy, light-colored interior was all wrong for the rough-hewn Alaskan look he was after, so he would have to build his own interior set.
He was honest with the family about the disruption. They worried that the movie would distract their children — Julia, 18; Luke, 16; Daniel, 15; and Blair, 13 — from their classes. Wanting to be helpful, they directed the producers to other homeowners. But Mr. Coates remained fixated on the Kaneb house. Julia Kaneb and her siblings wanted to be on that team. We did it for our kids. And while they did it for the experience, not the money, Mrs.
Kaneb said, Disney did compensate them for their trouble. The producers did not love the large outdoor pool. Bullock, Mr. Nelson and others , publicists, makeup artists, sound techs, camera crew, lighting specialists, landscapers, stand-ins, a nurse for first aid, producers, set designers, drivers, runners — began arriving at the Kaneb house between and 6 every morning. Her dog, a Havanese named Mocha, became a favorite of Ms. White was a favorite of the Kaneb family. She would always talk to us. Except for Mr. Reynolds, who seemed to be preoccupied between takes with text-messaging Scarlett Johansson — they became engaged during the filming — the actors all went out of their way to reach out.
The crew emptied the refrigerator in the main house, Mrs. Kaneb said, to make room for Ms. For everyone else they set up catering tents, providing three meals and snacks. Finally, Jennings seeks help from his sister and soon becomes acquainted with her neighbor, Marianne Walker. Her strength and faith intrigues Jennings, but will he allow himself to fall for her and the God she loves?

Guest More than 1 year ago I was very displeased with this book after reading it times. First of all, the book is supposed to be in the time period of Jane Austen. It doesn't seem to be in that time period at all.
English Garden Series in Order - Lori Wick - FictionDB
It seems as if people from the 20th century were transported to the time period. Second of all, the writing is horrible. The languaging is all off for the time period, the characters are static, and if you have read any other Lori Wick book, you will see that her books are very similar to each other, especially in character makeup. The Christianity is cliched and not applicable to real life. The only redeeming factor about this book is the romance story.
Though that even is a little flat.

All in all, not a good read from a very passe author. Guest More than 1 year ago Sorry to be the odd person here but I really hated this book! I kept hoping the story might improve with each passing chapter. The plot is totally predictable and unimaginative.
I did not find the characters endearing, but rather annoying. Anonymous More than 1 year ago Loved it! Anonymous More than 1 year ago. Guest More than 1 year ago This is one of the best books I have ever read. It is a great Christian novel that got me picking up my Bible every night.
I do not understand how you could say something bad about this amazing book that brought me closer to Christ. I just couldn't put it down. I read this book in just two days. I loved the characters and William and Marianne's story. This is an awesome story about what God can do. What a terrific story of struggle and strength. I instantly loved the characters. I found I was learning with them as the story unfolded. Guest More than 1 year ago I have read this series but did not read them in order.
I have enjoyed them so much that I am going to have to back track her earlier works and proceed to read them. Hopefully in order. Guest More than 1 year ago Lori comes through again with an amazing story of Christ love for his children.
A spell bound novel of love, suspense and faith. Guest More than 1 year ago I enjoyed this book so much. I loved reading the transformation of William Jennings, from cynic to Christian. I look forward to reading the next book in this series. Guest More than 1 year ago I've read many of Lori Wick's books.

Some of them I've read so many times I can flip through to my favorite parts. This book is one of them. I bought it yesterday for a plane ride home and couldn't wait today until I could sit down with it and finish it. It's a heart warming story of a man how reminds me of some of my friends, his quest to right his life and finding God along the way. It really makes you want to fall in love and find that in your own life. You'll want to read it again and again. Guest More than 1 year ago Lori Wick is without a doubt my favorite Christian author. I read this book within 2 days and immediately added it to my shelf of favorites.
