CassandraMaineAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5liked itAugust 2, 2014CassandraMaineAge: 18-24Gender: femaleI think the thing I liked most about this book was that is takes place in Maine. I was also relieved when I reached the ending and found out that Ivy decided to forgive Nick after all, and vice versa.
PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5All Right HereJuly 28, 2014PatsdreamHuntsville, ALAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleIvy and Nick can't have children. Now Nick seems to resent that Ivy can't have children and he's opposed to adoption. When the three children next door are abandoned they take them in. What was suppose to be temporary turns into a lot longer. Nick's family has never completely accepted Ivy and now they don't accept these children. Ivy's family is right the opposite plus very out-going and loving. As Ivy struggles with Nick and her marriage she has to make some serious decisions. When Nick realizes that he may be losing the most important person to him he tries to undo the damage he has caused.
What this family as they deal with back issues, the differences between their backgrounds and families, how faith plays a part in this marriage. The story is heart warming, has tender scenes, there is humor and out pouring of love for the children. This isn't an action packed book but it is about humanity, our flaws and how we don't always appreciate what we have until we are about to lose it.
I received this book through www.bookfun.org and the publisher (Tyndale House) to read and leave reviews. I enjoyed the book and do recommend it, especially if you enjoy soul stirring plot and heart warming moments.

Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5I want more Darling familyJuly 18, 2014Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5All Right Here is a family drama about the Darling Family. Leander and Jane are the dad and mom to their five grown children: David, the twins Laura and Ivy, Sephy, and Amy. This particular book deals the most with Ivy and her husband Nick. Nick and Ivy have been married for 6 years and Ivy is unable to have children. Something she thought that she and Nick had overcome. Unfortunately, Nick has not let that go and their marriage has suffered through the years. When their new neighbor abandons her three children, she and Nick take the kids in for what at first was supposed to be a few nights. But as the search continues for the neglectful mother, Ivy opens her heart to the children who have not really had a very good life. DeShaun at 14 has always tried to shelter his little sister Jada who is 9 and his little brother Hammer who is 6. Nick feels it his Christian duty to help these children but he insists that they are not their kids. Under the foster care of both Nick and Ivy all three children bloom and find hidden talents. However, as the days turn into weeks and then months, Ivy realizes her marriage is not going to change and temptation looms on the horizon. When Nick notices Ivy has cooled in her love for him, he realizes that he just might lose her and the three children who ended up becoming more important to him than he thought they would.
Laura, Ivy's twin, is the secondary story in this book. Her story also deals with some difficult subjects. This book is filled with real life problems and I did enjoy getting to know the Darling family. I really liked how they still had Thursday night dinners with almost the whole Darling clan and getting to peek in on their family celebrations. I enjoyed this author's debut book and I look forward to reading more about the Darling family. I received the book from The Book Club Network (TBCN) and the opinions are my own.
thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5July 16, 2014thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: femaleAll Right Here is the first in the Darling Family series.

But when the neighbor children need somewhere to live they take them in. But will their marriage end or can they pull it together?
I was excited to read this book because I had heard it was like the show Parenthood on TV, which I have watched a few episodes of and enjoyed. And while the book did resemble that in some ways it was slow and disjointed. It seemed we were jumping from one thing to the next with no continuity at all. I really wanted to love this book but I just didn't.
