This story was disappointing. The siblings lived in the same house and no one seemed to know where the others were many times, which I thought was hard to believe and troublesome, since 2 siblings were of school age. Also there was were glimpses of things going on with each character that we were left hanging until the very last pages, and even then some things weren't completely explained. Toward the end of the book, I kept wondering when the expected, was going to happen, and when would all the loose ends be tied up. It seemed as if the author realized that she was about to miss the deadline for handing in the story, and in the LAST FIVE pages tied everything up, in a very poor and rushed manor. Throughout the book she made a big deal about the oldest brother in the story and his poor choice of wife, and how the brother would manage with such a wife. At the end we were left hanging about him, his wife, and other members of the family. I've read many books in a series, but none have not had a coherent ending.
JOB'S NIECE by Grace Livingston Hill is an interesting inspirational historical romance set in 1920's United States. Ms. Livingston Hill is considered the pioneer of Christian Romance and her legacy continues. "Job's Niece" is book 11 in the "Love Endures" series,but can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of Doris Dunbar,her siblings,her very demanding stepmother and the mounting bills her father left at his death. And Angus Macdonald,a Scottish businessman,his widowed,aging mother,and his hope of a future in Europe. Fast paced story of hope,family,healing,faith,forgiveness and love.Can love bring salvation,hope and peace or more pain and hurt? I enjoy this author's stories.It just goes to show you Love does Endure. If you enjoy historical romance and family you will enjoy "Job's Niece". Another wonderful classic! Received for an honest review from the publisher.
