I really enjoyed this book. The Heroine, Faith, was a pretty standard Higgins character- slightly overweight, funny, clumsy gal. But, Faith had a more depth to her than other characters. I love how Higgins heroine's aren't "barbie" perfect. I loved the hero Levi. He's rough and tough, but so sweet to the people in his town. I would have strangled him to TALK though! The characters were quirky and fun. I liked that the story had some deeper issues of serving in war, childhood guilt over a death, and betrayed love. It made the story more real. Sex scenes are rated pg-13. Not explicit at all.
Disappointed in this latest book. It took too long to get comfortable with the MANY characters and almost half of the book for there to be any real desire for each other between the two main characters. I was out the door to purchase this the day it became available. I may wait until I get the next release from PBS.com rather than purchase it outright.

An introduction to the Holland family and their Blue Heron Vineyard and a look at the youngest of the family Faith Holland as she returns home to face the past and hopefully find her future. She had quite a public happening and ran away from home shortly after to find a new path, but has now returned home.
Although predictable, this book was super sweet. I loved that Faith didn't have it easy in the past and her current story wasn't all rainbows and sunshine! This book did center mostly on Faith's story, but it also set up the behind the scenes of this family and town in Western New York perfectly.
