    Thoughts on the entire series.With these novels, I joined the ranks of readers who know what it is to be in the midst of a series, waiting, even with bated breath, for the next book in the series to be published.I appreciate the style and language that Bunn clearly brought into this co written historical fiction saga with Oke I remember being totally engrossed and on edge during a certain crucial stretch in The Meeting Place and was floored by the unembellished end to that nerve racking rush Thoughts on the entire series.With these novels, I joined the ranks of readers who know what it is to be in the midst of a series, waiting, even with bated breath, for the next book in the series to be published.I appreciate the style and language that Bunn clearly brought into this co written historical fiction saga with Oke I remember being totally engrossed and on edge during a certain crucial stretch in The Meeting Place and was floored by the unembellished end to that nerve racking rush And then it began to rain I grew attached to the characters over the course of the series, though I ll admit I got a bit weary during the fifth novel, as while some of the characters were yet makinggrand departures from one another, I lost the sense of what they were actually getting done, apart from moving around the globe.I might ve been missing and or forgetting things, though, weary in general after doing so much waiting, and I don t regret a minute I spent with this saga

  6. Celeste Celeste says:

    This book has left me so happy I didn t think that it would be possible to cry so many times throughout the duration of one book but Janette Oke and T Davis Bunn have proved me completely and utterly wrong These characters never cease to inspire me and as much as I cried while reading, I also grinned all throughout

  7. Margaret Margaret says:

    This book I liked much better than the 2nd in the series The ending was thrilling and revealing with a secret that comes out, perhaps it was a bit coincidental but I don t mind that all I am looking forward to the fourth of the series to find out what happens.

  8. Cheryl Cheryl says:

    This book felt a bit like filler at times The plot points, like the other books, were predictable and convenient I did like the English setting which made it muchinteresting than it would have been otherwise However, I felt like the authors phoned it in a bit with the English social scenes The twist at the ending made me roll my eyes too.
