as Sarah finds God right in the center of it all.
My Comments: Great ending to an interesting nostalgic series of stories which seemed true to the time setting. Forgiveness plays a key roll – the need for it as well as the actual act of forgiving. People make mistakes – large mistakes and thankfully God provides a beautiful way to remedy that. Thankfully, Melody Carlson writes an engaging Christian story without being preachy. The truth is naturally displayed within the story boundaries. I enjoy Anna, Lauren, and Sarah – three women finding their own way. Sarah frustrated me in this book. We struggled right along with her and her grandmother. I admired the restraint and patience Anna showed throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed this whole series – very entertaining!
