I finished this book with a resounding WOW! What an absolutely wonderful book. It is very well written and emotionally charged. Written in modern days dealing with the issues of divorce and and alcoholism and how they affect the life of those touched by them It is a story of hope for a second chances for first loves. What I absolutely loved the most in this book is the moral standards portrayed especially with the teenagers and then going into adulthood upholding those same principles. It teaches us that it can be done and we don't have to give in even as teenagers. I read the excerpt from book two in the series and have just purchased it and downloaded it to my device so I can start reading. I highly recommend this book. Wonderful book beautiful story.
I really enjoyed this series. This is the first in the Cedar Key Series. It was fun to read about the history of the place, and I felt the story was well written. I would definitely recommend this book, as well as the series!
This a a very moving story on so many levels of issues that confound and confuse our current culture: undesired divorce, abandonment, child custody disagreements, struggling faith walks, eldercare and many others. In spite of these difficult issues, this is still a heart-warming read. It is one of those that you will not want to put down until you discover if there is a happy ending.
The ending of the story for Kim and Steven is, however, not the end of the story. For some reason the author does not make clear, there is such a quirky ending which does not fit with the rest of the story that I was left with a very disappointed feeling.
I was a modern day story without the innuendos and garbage that even some Christian books put out. Not a lot of arguing, that churns my stomach. Spent a whole leisurely afternoon and evening reading it. Can't wait for book two....
I so enjoyed this book and when I got to the end, I couldn't believe that there was no closure. It seems to me that the author is attempting to get her next book purchased. I have never read a book that was left in this way. I thought part of it was missing, but obviously it's the way it was written. What a disappointing ending.
