The author has done her research, and she makes early Virginia real. This is a sequel to "Through A Glass Darkly," but the book can stand alone as an absorbing story. There are layers of thought-provoking human questions that make you feel you know the people portrayed as they cope with sophisticated, modern problems in the early days before the American Revolution. The book is not preachy, and it's not a boring recitation of history. It is a very well-written, entertaining story

The sequal to "Through a Glass Darkly"
A great follow up book! You jump right back into the characters life. Barbara is a grown women now, with the same determination as her grandmother. This was a great book.

I enjoyed the first one (Through A Glass Darkly) more, but "Now Face To Face" was still very, very good.

Sequel to Through a Glass Darkly. Continues the life of Barbara in Colonial America. Not as good as the first but still an enjoyable book.

First half of book was great--last 1/3 sort of fell apart. It is such a large book that it felt like on the last 1/3 the author just had to throw things together as she realized otherwise it would be too long for publication? The last 1/3 is a mishmosh of typing of loose ends and is not enjoyable to read. Lots of gaps. The worst thing though was in the last 1/3 the author must have repeated that biblical phrase theme of the book "when I was a child...' about 50 times. You just wanted to throw up about then. Jeesh, I was so sick of seeing her stick it into the pages again and again and again...did I mention again? Ha ha Characters were full and vivid though and I can't fault it on that. The elderly Duchess is still my favorite character.
