Lucie's Review: A wonderful conclusion, that ties up all the loose ends.
While this is Willow's story, it is also a story about all of the Sinclair sisters from the previous books as well, and I wouldn't really recommend reading this without having read the first three amazing books, otherwise this book won't make quite as much sense or might seem rather scattered.
I liked how this book kept up with the heroines from the previous books, because it was nice to be able to see what they were up to and what had happened in their lives since they'd gotten married.
The story was well-written and the sisters had to deal with many heartaches. This book made the perfect conclusion to a wonderful series, and just made it all wind to a close effortlessly.
I really liked the characters of Trenton and Willow and how they both had to deal with being outcasts and learn to forgive and move on from past hurts. Hattie and Boney were some lively side characters, that really brought the setting of Cripple Creek to life with a real sense of community.
Overall, this was a great read, that had some cute moments. I guess the only thing is that I wish that Willow and Trenton had gotten to spend more time together and there had been more interaction between them, though I really liked how past main characters were still very prominant in the story it left less room for Willow and Trenton. Probably one of my favorite things was the powerful symbolism and reminders that God is always there. A terrific conclusion.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thanks!
