For me, this story was a bit disappointing. While it was well written, it moved too slow for me. I felt like I was struggling to pick it back up and slog through to the end. I didn't feel a real connection to any of the characters. I liked them, but wasn't wanting to invite them to dinner. It was a nice story, just not a five star for me. I was asked for my honest opinion in exchange for a copy of the story.

This was my first read from Jocelyn Green. She is now on my favorite author list. I really enjoyed this story. I was given it free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. I am so glad I got a chance to read this story. It opened my eyes to a lot of history that I did not realize happened the way it did. This book had major heartache, surprises, twists, turns, and very enjoyable moments. If you want a fluff read, this is NOT it. Be prepared. It will rip your heart out, paste it back together, rip it apart again, and hand it back to you. WONDERFUL!! Emotional!! I loved every minute of it and feel like I was right there feeling the mud suck between my toes and mosquitoes biting me all over. (ick) I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a good adventure!!

This is Julie Klassen's first series. I am so excited to continue reading about the characters of Ivy Hill. While this had a bit of romance to it, I would not call it a romance. It is more about strength to overcome what life sends at you. It is about relying on your friends to keep you going and how a small town works together to keep thriving. Forgiveness plays a big role. Another story plays along in the background that I really enjoyed about one of the main character's friends. I was quite enamored with that story as well, As always, Julie Klassen delivers an interesting and involved story that keeps you reading right until the very end...wanting more. This is a very enjoyable read and I look forward to her next book and many more to come. I was allowed by the author to read this book and give my honest review. SO glad I did!
