    Another great book

    Loved this one...and really enjoy the author's style where the main characters share their own story. I cried along with them and cheered them on...love the ending! One of my new favorite authors! Review by CherishD (be nice if I could figure out how to lose the "anonymous" that B&N has me stuck with!)

    All this and more ...

    Beautiful ¿ powerful ¿ painful ¿ With Love, Libby is all of these and more. It's a story of dreams, of friendship, of loss, and ultimately of restoration and fulfillment. In With Love, Libby, Henke explores the depth of friendship between women. She lays bare the power of dreams between mothers and daughters. A masterful word weaver, she threads the potent force of faith and God's grace throughout the story in a most natural way. In an unpredictable and unique plot approach, Libby is writing a book titled After Anne, which Henke authored as the first novel in this 5-book series. At first, I was slightly confused whether the letters from readers about After Anne and the other books were real or fictional. But that twist added realism to the story. Henke's memorable characters live in the small town of Brewster, North Dakota, where everyone knows everybody¿and their business. With Love, Libby is the last of the Coming Home to Brewster series. It's the first one I've read of the series but not the last. I just ordered the other 4 books, and if they are anything like this one, all five will remain on my bookshelf to be read again and again.

    Remarkable! A great finish!

    The book inspired me in ways I couldn't imagine. I laughed and cried. I could relate the characters in this book. It was as if Roxy knew how to describe the feelings in such a way to make you feel part of the lives in Brewster. My life has had most of the experiences in the final edition to the series this past year. It was a affirmation to me that it is acceptable to have the emotions I'm having. I'm so appreciative for the last book. I was released just in time for me personally. I'm saddened knowing I can never visit Brewster again, but on the other hand ready for her to take us to a new place.

    more from this reviewer

    Caution, this story may get you choked up.

    When I picked up With Love, Libby, I was thrilled to discover that Libby was the same character as the main character in Becoming Olivia, which I loved. While a bit too long, in my opinion, this story still provided a rich read and poignant moments. I did find myself skimming over parts on occasion where simply too much stuff packed the chapter that seemed unrelated to the goal of each character. I don't like excessive description. At any rate, I cried over Angie's struggles and the tragedy that occurred in her life. I also felt bad that she condemned herself so much for her mistake. I've worked with many teen parents and never met one so down on herself. I found that sad. Also, her mother was hard for me to like because it broke my heart that she literally shunned Angie when she was in her time of greatest need. Sobbed over that one. I rarely cry when I read, so that was great! I love it when a book makes me feel something. I found Libby less likeable in this story, too. Both Libby and Vicky seemed so self-centered to me. I couldn't believe how much they wanted to control their children and circumstances. I would hate to be a mother like that, and thank God my kids are free to fail and make their own choices without me heaping guilt on their heads. However, that's just my personality. I know many women like Libby and Vicky, and in fact, I plan to give this novel to a friend who is struggling with the same issues that Libby and Vicky had. Her children are doing things with their lives that she is unhappy with. I see this book as a resource to minister to women in these situations. Maybe they'll read this story and say to themselves, 'That's me. Oh, God, please forgive me and help me relinquish the need to control my child's future.' So, in summary, I highly recommend this book. It's worth the read even if it is a bit too long. :)
