Jenny Bontrager finally feels loved and cherished by her husband, Matthew, and his children. Life seems golden with both her family and career as a writer.
Then one day her grandmother, Phoebe, falls ill, and Jenny cares for her. As she reaches into Phoebe’s closet for a robe,Jenny finds a letter from her father dated the summer when she was nearly eighteen.
As she struggles to understand her father’s words,Jenny’s love for him, and her recently renewed faith and trust in God are thrown into question again. And without warning, her perfect life is thrown into question . . .
Book three returns to the characters from book one, Jenny and Matthew. They have been married for three years and Hannah and Chris from book two have been married for one. Jenny so wants to have a baby but has not conceived and she is struggling with jealousy because Hannah is pregnant. While dealing with this her grandma Phoebe falls ill and Jenny finds a letter from her father to her grandma which contains information from when she and Matthew where 18 and the information really upsets her and threatens to put a wedge in her marriage and relationship with her grandma.
Will Jenny and Matthew be able to over come these obstacles and find peace or will it tear them apart?
I had really enjoyed this series so far and looked forward to reading the last book of the series.
What I liked: I liked that we got to go back and wrap up the series with Jenny and Matthew. We knew from book one that they may not be able to have kids due to her injury’s and we also knew there was more to the story of Jenny’s and Matthews first meeting when they where 18. It was also nice to see how Chris and Hannah where doing. I felt the author did a really nice job of wrapping up this series.
What I did not like: I thought Jenny was a little over the top with the letter that she found from her dad to her grandma and how she handled it. The author did a great job of explaining her feelings but I a few times wanted to tell her to grow up a little. I also wish there had been an epilogue. The ending was good but seems so quick and I wished we could have had a quick peak a year or so down the line.
Over all this was a good wrap up of a good series.
As a series over all this was a great read. I really enjoyed all three books and felt that the author did a wonderful job of keep each book unique yet staying with one family. I was a little worried when I saw book three was going back to Jenny and Matthew but it was a good way to wrap up the series. I am looking forward to the next series by this author!
