Overall, after reading every word of the book, I was not impressed. The plot was very predictable and weak. I do hope, though, as a grandmother I am the pillar of strength that Mattie Mitchell portrayed in the book. My favorite passage of the book is in Chapter 35 when Ashley recalls one of her grandmothers pearls of wisdom: Houses do not make homes -- people do. Possessions are irrelevant in matters of the heart, and that love grows anywhere so long as it finds fertile, willing soil. My least favorite passage of the book was in Chapter 39 when Mattie reminds her granddaughter, Ashley, that one reason she should not consider divorce from Jack was the loss of financial security. That specific reason is as weak as the books plot.

I loved this book. The characters were well developed and the problems real - stresses the importance of family and God. Tracie Peterson is one of the better Christian chick-lit authors. I highly recommend this book. Carol

Excellent book on family and forgiveness. Captured me right from the beginning. I hated to have it end.

I absolutely loved this book. A wonderful story, wonderful characters and a book you just don't want to end. The writer draws you right into the lives of these five sisters and makes you wonder how their lives continued on once you've turned the last page.
