This novel was so intriguing, so captivating, that it made me do something that I haven’t done in quite a long time…it made me stay up into the wee hours of the morning reading it!!! That’s right. I could not set this book down and go to sleep. I had to find out what really happened in the past to Hazel Mae’s sister! And even though I was so very tired the next day (which is why I don’t usually stay up late reading anymore) I was happy I did, because this book was worth it!

These characters were very interesting and there are quite a few flashbacks to the past, which I enjoyed a lot. The author switched between the three generations of DeFord women showing things from their perspectives in rotating chapters. This took a little getting used to at first. I had to keep reminding myself which woman’s viewpoint I was reading through. But, once I got that straight, I appreciated seeing how each woman viewed things.

This story really grabbed me. There was a very, very light romance flowing through it, however, that is not the main objective of this novel. The family relationship, letting go of animosity, realizing who God really is, and solving the mystery of Maggie’s disappearance propelled the story line and made this a book I truly enjoyed.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
