This was the first book I've read by Donna VanLiere but definitely not the last! Such a heartwarming story of real life's struggles, faith and God's love. This is so good it was a quick read.

Like all of her books...this one was great! Hard to put down! She writes with so much description, it's almost as though I saw the movie!

It's 1947. Nine-year-old Jane Gable first lays eyes on Milo Turner the day her alcoholic and abusive father is laid to rest. The Turner family is the first black family to live in Morgan Hill and Jane can't understand why people are so bitter. For Jane and her brother John, Milo is just a new friend and playmate.

Then tragedy strikes the Turner family and the Gables are asked to make a decision that could rip their family apart. One path may open up a whole new world for them and bring them closer together, the other may bring them trouble and heartache. As Jane struggles to make sense of the many changes that have come to her community, she will discover that she is surrounded by many angels who are ready to help her in the most ordinary and extraordinary ways.

I really liked this book and thought that it was a very easy read. I enjoyed this book so much because everything comes right. This is the second time that I've read this book and I give it an A+!

I was hesitant at first to read this book but since I've enjoyed the Christmas stories by this author I thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the characters Jane, John and Milo. They will put a smile on your face. Wish this book was included as part of a series. It would be interesting to read more about the characters as they get older.

This is probably my second favorite book. I was a quick read, an enjoyable story. I loved the characters. They were so real. The oft used phrase "heart-warming" comes to mind. The book shows what really makes a family, and what that family can teach a community.
My copy of the book, doesn't say anywhere on it that it is Christian fiction, but it certainly had that flavor. At least, as a Christian, that's how I read it. I suppose it could also be read as just a sweet story with lovable people.
Either way, I highly recommend this book.
