Cassie Haddon grew up with a mother who never let her do anything, so she never learned how to do anything. They move back to Noble Springs to be with her brother, Rand, but Cassie finds out that her mother was hiding their financial situation from her. They are broke. Cassie and her mother end up staying with Rosemary and Stewart, but as the stay extends it begins to wear on the newlyweds who are expecting their first child.
Cassie realizes that she can't be a burden to her friends so she finds a job working for Mr. West at his store and restaurant, and he hires her on a trial basis figuring that she won't last. But her determination convinces Mr. West to let her stay.
Jake is finding more and more reasons to eat at the restaurant after Cassie starts working there, but he's got secrets of his own and he's afraid of what she would think if she knew. But finally he asks her on a buggy ride. Can love bloom on a road filled with obstacles?
Return to Noble Springs with this wonderful conclusion to the Sisters at Heart series. I loved meeting new characters as well as revisiting Faith and Rosemary. Both Cassie and Jake have some growing to do. My favorite character ended up being Reverend French, who was always kind and had sage advice to impart.
Overall, this was a good conclusion to a series, bringing together the sisters at heart. I will be honest here and say that this story didn't really hook me as much as I had hoped, it wasn't bad, far from it, but I kept feeling the whole time that I should like it a lot more than I did. But it was a sweet story, with great characters. I would mostly recommend this book to people who have read the first two books in the series, because it brings backs so many wonderful couples and characters.
