Don't get me wrong, It's an OK read. I'm a huge fan of Jan Karon. I even grew up in the Blowing Rock area of which these books are centered. I also dream of being there while reading BUT..... I just kept reading this one thinking, surely it will get better. It never did. I was disappointed.
Felt like I would have missed something if I hadn't finished the series but it didn't keep my interest as much as previous books did. Did tie up a lot of loose ends but left me wondering about the brother.
