The regular shifts could not allow Carr to practice her nursing actively resulting to her abandoning of her nursing career. Carr used to be a romantic novel reader. Most of her part time especially during her pregnancy, shoe would go to her romantic novels and keep reading before she opted to write her own stories.

The romance in her books will revolve around a woman that has exemplified strength emotionally and in their personalities. Maybe Carr puts herself in her books or she is just a champion of women but this may not be known. The strong protagonists are all women in her works.

The plot will also point out the strength of a woman through the handling of real women issues. In most of her stories, real women issues will be the center of focus. For a fiction writer, you expect details on the issues affecting women well brought out in ways that ordinary people can relate with.

Carr does this perfectly in her novels. Carr has a trademark of using natural features such as Valleys, Rivers, and Thunder to bring out a comparison with the story events. She has perfected her skill in using suspense to captivate the readers. What seems obvious in her works is never obvious and knowing how the story will end cannot be brought out while reading.

Carr’s books are the kind that you cannot predict the end.

    I’ve read all the Virgin River books and have enjoyed the TV series. I just finished the Thunder Point series and feel there is more to be written in this series.
    Thank you so much for writing such enjoyable books.

    Have one book to go to complete the Sullivan’s Crossing series. Enjoying it thoroughly, maybe as much as the Virgin River books, but I’m not so sure, since I’m a Northern California girl (age 82). Just want to thank you, Robyn Carr, for the gift of your books. I save them especially to re-read during stressful times, such as last year’s CZU wildfire, when we were evacuated within 20 minutes with a 100 lb. dog, 3 cats (two of which are semi feral), and 4 chickens. After that dreadful night, I reached for and began re-reading the Virgin River series. Familiarity with the characters brings that cuddle quality. Mel, Jack, of course, and then the other regulars. As a consequence, you are a major gift in my life. Thank you!
