Overview

Willow Finley was born on the farm she shared with her mother. Though twenty-two, she rarely went into town, never went to school or church, and can name on one hand the number of people she’s ever met. Willow has never used a phone, watched a movie, or ridden in a car. And no, she is not Amish. Until the morning that changed her life, she had only her mother as a companion.

Now Willow is alone and learning that integrating into the rest of the world is both exciting and disappointing. Knowing that people have feet and hands of clay is one thing but seeing them in action is another. From the moment Willow arrives in the police station with her startling announcement, Chad fights the friendship he knows he can't avoid.

In this Volume, Willow's estrangement from Chad makes life even lonelier and more difficult than she expected. But Chad has other ideas and refuses, despite himself, to let her push him away. An accident, an introduction to both sets of grandparents, and her deepening friendships with Chad and Bill keeps her from withdrawing too deeply within herself, and yet as life turns even more bizarre, she is forced to trust in her Lord even more than ever.

    Cliche and unbelievable

    Unlike volume 1 which I loved despite the religious overtones, volume 2 sees Willow return to a flat, Marysue Christian. She is so perfectly asexual it is unbelievable; I honestly started to think she had a glandular problem. I have no issue with a clean romance, but a 23 year old with ZERO sex drive is absurd. The author also has a conflict between the descriptions of Chad observing Willow (obviously interested in more than frienship) and his thoughts where he insists she is like a sister (despite her flowing hair and fantastic chest). The so-called love story aspect of this tale was so disappointing after part 1 that I will not be buying part 3.

    Love this book!! This is parts 2-6 of a long serial novel that Mrs. Havig is releasing.

    Love this book!! This is parts 2-6 of a long serial novel that Mrs. Havig is releasing. So, don't be expecting the full story in this one set. That said, this is a wonderful story. I had a terrible time putting it down. Willow is a fabulous character that I couldn't help but love. I really enjoy her unique and innocent perspective on life, and also love the easy knowledge she has of so many things that are a lost art so I really appreciate that this is a good, CLEAN, Christian romance. Many, many Christian novels are way over the top with the physical intimacy, etc. It's refreshing to find a story that's good without all of that. Wonderful story. Well written and engaging. I highly recommend it.

    Sweet read

    Wrapped up in this series! I didn't like Willow when she was introduced in the "Aggie's Inheritance" series and almost didn't have any desire to start on the "Past Forward" but OH SO HAPPY that I did! Just purchased Book 3 and can't wait to continue living Willow's life with the whole group. This series is so rich...love this author! Review by CherishD

    Great read.

    Imagine living totally isolated from the outside world, except for reading books and being homeschooled by your mother. No phone, television or contact with general public. The author brings out all the positives of living totally off the land as well as showing all the angst of being thrust into today's world.

    This is a great series. I just wish the author included recipes for soap making, etc.

    Wonderful follow-up to Ready or Not

    I got the Beginning book free and couldn't put it down. Had to purchase the next few volumes. Also got Ready or Not for free, which references some of the characters in Past Forward. Wonderful books that keep you VERY interested!!

    The continuing story

    (As of this week according to the author blog, part 26 is available through Amazon)

    The second book of a continuing story of Willow Anne Findley and her friend Chad Teasdall as she copes a little more with today's "not so real" real world and its problems.

    Naieve Willow confronts fear, hate, anger, loneliness and an ongoing current of love between her and Chad. Does she trust hersekf to allow it? Will she be safe from the outside world she is beginning to embrace. Is connecting with extended fammily a good or bad thing?

    Willow's maturity is a fascinating story, old fashioned and current at the same time. Bravo...can hardly wait for nnumber 3
