This is the third in a series which really should be read in sequence....the other two being A Can of Peas and Dandelions in a Jelly Jar. It's a wonderful series revolving around family and farming in the midwest.

This a great read.It is book 3 of 3 of the Lake Emily series. Traci Dupree ties a number of farm families together in this series and book.The main character is Virginia a 78 year old widow, by two years who has a dehabilitating stroke. She is angry at herself, God and her family.She slowly recovers and realizes a whole community is there to support and help her. She sells her grandson her farm and he has to give up time with his wife and new baby son and Virginia to get all his farm work done and still has a bad crop and has to borrow money for next year. In this book several farm families lives are woven in and farming is not an easy living .It is a hard living, unlike other jobs you can put in long, long hours and if you do not get enough or too much rain your crop can be ruined through no fault of yours. Virginia's grandson Peter is angry with his father a symphony conductor for working too much, but when Peter has his own family he finds himself doing the same. This story and it's characters are woven together beautifully.I could not put the book down until I finished it. I love this book.

While I have just loved this series, and hate to see it end, I found this book the least satisfying of the series. Too many characters and situations unresolved. I felt like the author just tried to wrap it all up too quickly and some characters were just left hanging. Was this for the possibility of another book in the series down the road? I don't know but I found it jarring. Having said all that, I felt the author did a wonderful job with the character of Virginia Morgan and her eventual acceptance of her stroke and cherishing life as it was. Definitely worth reading but be prepared to be left hanging slightly.

The third book in this series, but I can see where there is the possibilities for more following these characters. If there isn't I felt like we were left hanging.

A lovely reminder that hope can be found even in the tragedies of life and that joy waits in the most unexpected places. This is book 3 in the Emily Lake Series.
