I did not want to put this book down. This author writes with depth that could stand up against any secular author, but when I read her books I come away feeling peaceful, which I cannot say about most secular authors. I loved the part where Aunt Batty explains that she could not live w/o books. As a family who have moved across the country a few times, with more boxes of books than most small libraries, Austin hit the heart of at least some of her readers.
Good characters and a few good story lines, branching generations, so suitable for those who like historical and modern fiction, far more than "just" a love story.
