    highly recommended. You will want to re-read this book over and over. Don't miss the earlier books in the series as well.

    I re-read this book whenever my spirits need uplifting and my way seems unclear. Ms. Gouge shines a light into the very human hearts of her characters so that I am able to say, "Oh. Now I begin to understand where I missed my turn.". I love the Eliots. They are imperfect, and all the more lovable for that.

    SLOW!

    I have read the first two of this series and they were great! But this 3rd and last of the series has been a slow read for me. I am on page 98 and want to finish it so I can move on to something I can really enjoy! So I'll give it a three and hope that I will be able to gjve it a higher rating when I finish it.
