Book 7: To Have and to Hold Fall in love with Dave and Mary all over again. Their story is so special and I can truly relate as my husband treats me as Dave treats Mary...as his precious treasure. Dave sees beyond what others see and knows what a gift Mary is. I really enjoyed this story. Poor Dave has always had a poor memory, he goes to the store just to forget what he wanted to buy. And now he has to remember for both of them as Mary takes a fall and loses her memories. She wakes up to see three strangers who are really her husband and children. When they receive a letter that Mary's dad is on his deathbed, they decide to visit Maine to see him and they hope it will trigger Mary's memories returning there as well. Deep down she has a bad feeling about going back, that those memories should remain buried. The villains of this story are definitely all but a couple members of Mary's family. Can Dave's love for his wife help her overcome the negative environment she grew up in? I really did enjoy it. It's a good reminder not to let other peoples negative views decide how we think of ourselves and to accept those who see us through love. I thought Ruth did a great job of bringing the emotions out from the characters to the reader. **Sexual situations within marriage.

Really enjoyed this story. Great characters. Very frustrated that they didn't tell the rude people to stop being so rude to sweet Mary. I guess that shows how people can sweep things under the rug and forgive their nasty ways. Great story though.

Loved! Loved! Loved! This book. I loved reading more about Mary and Dave. Some of it upset me how her family was to her but the way she finally stood up for herself and how she changed during her time in Nebraska were perfect. I couldn't imagine living a life like she had to live growing up. Sure I had my own issues but never with my own family. This story just goes to show how people are and how people should be even though those are hard to find.

I loved watching Mary begin to blossom in "Eye of the Beholder" after marrying a man who could see her true value as a woman. Ruth Ann Nordin gave hints and glimpses of Mary's continued growth in the other books in the series; but, I am so glad she wrote "To Have and To Hold" so we could watch David help Mary truly come to recognize her own worth.
