I absolutely LOVE this series and the people in it!! When reading the first book, we had an icestorm and our power was out, so we all had to sleep in piles of blankets in the den in front of the fireplace, to try & stay warm. Consequently, I spent the entire evening, flashlight in hand, reading the first book of this series...which just made this book that much more special, as I read it when most of the luxuries of life were stripped away due to our power outage. (not counting that it was impossible to put down!) If I had to name one thing I liked best about this series, it would be that it so candidly shares the various seasons of a woman's life, and yet all the while reminding us that regardless of the season, Christ is **always** there to turn to. I felt like the women in this series were my good friends, I so came to know and love them. Would LOVE to see more books come out in this series!!!
