Bettie Conner5 Stars Out Of 5November 14, 2007Bettie ConnerI loved this book. I am addicted to sequels. Gilbert Morris always makes you feel like you are involved in the lives of these people; as if they are real. The children act just like normal kids used to act. Most children today would not be able to take on the responsibility that Lani did. She trusted the Lord and in return the Lord blessed. Her judgment concerning the fellows in her life was definitely an act of someone who had been raised to live for Lord and to not rush hastily into anything. Most young ladies would have been so enthralled with Roger's good looks and money they would not have been able to resist the temptation to become "his" girl. This book makes you look at life in a different perspective.

Deborah4 Stars Out Of 5July 5, 2007DeborahThis book was a little better than the last one. I did like how Logan Satterfield's character began to change. Mavea also has stopped being really rebellious and shows signs of wanting to become a Christian. I liked how she got Logan to go to church with her because in the past books she would never have dreamed about going to church on her own and now she is getting guys to go with her. The store in a truck idea was very interesting and appropriate for the time period. I liked how the family worked together to conceive the idea and then actually make it happen. It was good to read of how close the family were to help out each other in times of need. Also very glad to read about Cass and Nelson. While he wasn't the original guy I thought she would end up being with, I think that the couple will do well together. I kinda of felt though that Brent Hayden's character wasn't really necessary. While he did help out Lanie with her writing, he just becomes another suitor in her already filled love live. Now she has three men competing for her, as the town is quick to point out. She does spend quite a bit of time alone with him which she doesn't seem to be too concerned about. The bit about the end result of Lanie's father's cancer seemed unreal to me. I know situations like that have happened but this just seemed to be a huge coincidence. Also the situation with the doctor and the widow seemed to be played unfairly and very wrong to brought up in a church setting. Still a fun read, looking forward to the next one.
