bmagenta3 Stars Out Of 5June 19, 2012bmagentaQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1When I first bought this book, I was so excited. Normally, you can tell alot about a book based on its cover. In addition, I heard great things about the author. The reviews on CBD were mostly very good, so I was expecting a really good read.
However, I was really dissapointed. I felt that the author didn't focus on the couple as much, but rather wrote a lot about the other characters. For example, a large portion of the book was spent detailing one of the mothers, which I found irrelevant. There was a lack of detail that I felt made the book hard to follow.
Also, the lead character, Grace, was hard to like. She was very rude to everyone and so focused on getting Toby's attention, she didn't allow poor Jonathen a chance to get to know her. Maybe if the author would have given more time to develop this character she wouldn't have appered as snobbish.

Takes you back to what it was most probably like in the 1800's homesteading and following the families through their children's lives.
