NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! IT CAN'T BE OVER!!!!!
I need a bag to breathe into.... This series is OVER?! WHAT?!?!?!!?
Book Rating: Best of the Best
I'm gonna tell it straight. I had a hard time getting into this book. No explanation for it. For some reason it took me quite a while to warm to it--the plot, the characters...
Then all of a sudden Laura goes all Emeril Lagasse on me, "BAM!" And I was hooked. In one crazy moment everything came together and I couldn't put it down.
If you have read the first two books in this series you KNOW you will be swept away by this one and will be balling like a baby when it's over. These people are REAL, ok, don't try and tell me that they're not!!! *growling breath*
It's ok, I'm ok... I'll get through this.
Wren, granddaughter of Silas and Eden ('member them? oh yeah!), has come to New Hope, and as lovely as it is, she yearns for her simple life in Kentucky. Society sucks her into its frothing swells, drowning her with its lust for money and formality. She cares nothing for it. If not for the charming and courageous James Sackett she might have returned home long before. (Hey, if I were her I would have stayed around for sure!!) Wren is a wonderfully beautiful heroine. She's strong, yet quiet--she knows what she wants and yet she wants other to be happy and is willing to do what it takes to make that happen. I loved her. And wow. I love her name!
Let's talk about James real quick. He's an AMAZING hero. Really unassuming. I LOVED that. Just a kind, charming, regular kind of guy--and then--you get to know him more, and you see his depth, his courage and his willingness to sacrifice his life for others in a way that... GAH! And, not only that, he is super romantic and pretty much the perfect guy. So there you go. Want more? Oh there is more--READ THE BOOK!!!
This book has everything you have come to love from Laura. Drama, amazing historical details, poetic prose and a plot that is both beautifully simple and intricate at the same time. You will be flipping pages like mad. Believe me.
The end.... OH! THE END will kill you--it's absolutely perfect!!!
I can't wait to hear what you think of it!! Bless you, Laura, for a marvelous conclusion to a magnificent series! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
