This book completes the Margaret of Ashbury trilogy. I am sorry to see Margaret's story come to an end but it is done in a manner that left me satisfied. I like Judith Merkle Riley's writing style. Drama is mixed with humor. I found myself laughing out loud reading parts of this novel. Will definitely read more by this author.
