I absolutely had to finish this book the first night I got it from the library. I kept saying, "well, just one more chapter." I was pleasantly surprised to find that is was a series as I was unaware. I'm looking forward to reading the other books and seeing how Daphne's story plays out.
Wow! What a wonderful first book to the Dear Daphne Series. It is beautifully written. I love the characters. Daphne has great character traits. She inherits from her aunt with strings attached. Will she be able to fulfill those strings? I guess we will just have to wait until the end of the series. In the mean time we will get to enjoy the process and come to fall in love with Daphne. I can't wait to pick up the second book in the series and read it.
Anything written by Melody Carlson grabs my attention. If she wrote blurbs on cereal boxes, I would read them. Her ability to develop realistic interactions between characters is an amazing talent. She makes me care about what happens in her stories. This is a delightful beginning in the new "Dear Daphne" series.
