My Thoughts:

* I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

This is Book four in the Homeplace Saga Series. I enjoyed this family saga, I also thought the addition of facts from 1996 at the beginning of each chapter was a fun twist.  The only problem I had was the dialogue. I found it to be somewhat stilted. Otherwise, it's an enjoyable read.

So, I'm giving it:
