Just got done reading the first in the series of 4. Very well wrote. I love Debbie Macombers books. Very clean read. Can't wait to start on the nest one Dakota Home, then Always Dakota and the last one Buffalo Valley. I have all of them to read but Buffalo Valley which is on my wish list.
These are a most read for anyone that likes Debbie Macomber
Good read. This series is not just about the primary characters in each book but incorporates all the residence of the town of Buffalo Valley. This is the first of the Dakota Trilogy. The remaining books are 'Dakota Home' & 'Always Dakota'. If you are a fan of Ms. Macomber's Cedar Cove series you will especially enjoy this trilogy.
This book was recommended to me by my pen-pal. I found it sad ans it reflects a picture of many small towns USA...dying towns with boarded up stores and broken down houses. A newcomer to Buffalo Valley, ND is shocked to see how run down the town is but decides to stay and accepts the position of a teacher. This is a heart-warming story of hope, love and a new beginning...
