    Pleasant surprise!

    As a huge fan of Bread Alone, I decided to try a second novel from Ms. Hendricks and was very glad I did. The novel is about a woman (Avery James) who searches for answers about the mother she never knew. However, the story goes much deeper as it unfolds, detailing the events in Avery's life. The people she encounters and the challenges she must meet along the way are nothing less than incredibly interesting. I highly recomend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary fiction with a little romance mixed in!

    Excellent read

    Excellent. Character is very interesting and very believable. This is one worth the$$. If you liked this book you will think to yourself to pick up on The laws of harmony...don't....you will be disappointed. This novel is way better. Enjoy.

    Isabel's Daughter

    I agree with you on that one I thought that Isabel's daughter was one of those books that you could curl up next to a fire with. I also thought that the story made you think about the moral of the story. I began to feel sorry for Avery and began to imagine myself as Avery James. The morals of this story are never abandon your children, and you can't rely too much on people because they come and go. This book taught me some valuable life lessons.

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    This is an absolutely wonderful book. This is the story of Avery James, the daughter of an artist (Isabel) who was deposited in a Foundling home at birth. Avery grows up painfully and constantly at a distance from those around her. The novel is set in Santa Fe and other small towns in New Mexico and what wonderful, beautiful locales they are! The book offers just the perfect amount of mysticism that fits the locales and the characters. Judi Hendricks has a wonderful ability to make you feel strongly about her characters and their actions (whether you agree or disagree) - yet you always want them to succeed. I felt the same way about Wyn in her first book, ¿Bread Alone¿. The Avery you know through most of the book isn¿t one I found myself caring for, but the Avery she becomes is a wonderful woman who finally allows herself to be the strong, kind, loving woman she always could have been under different circumstances. Read this book!!!
