Love may cover a multitude of sins, but not knowing all the facts can also get a man killed.
A family calamity gathers the clan, then a dying request tests loyalties and changes lives. New York City’s posh society, living on a rugged Texas hill country ranch, and the isolation of Alaska’s frozen tundra share little commonality and make going from one to another difficult at best. Still, destiny drives Crockett and his sister Charlotte where neither wants to go or thinks they belong. Second and third generations of the Buckmeyer progeny encounter danger, challenges, heartaches, and joys. But then reunions are all the sweeter for it.
This tale continues the breathtaking—and sometimes heartbreaking—family saga of the Buckmeyers, Baylors, and Nightingales that readers around the world have come to love.
I really enjoyed the characters in this one. This is apparently the 8th in the series but you can read it just fine as a stand alone (which I did). The book ranges all over from New York to Texas and further. I really enjoyed the story that Evie reads. I liked that aspect, it was different and drew me in. Evie herself is a sweet, innocent child but also has wisdom beyond her years at times.
The wishes of a dying family member send different parts of the family in different directions on different jobs. The author really doesn't hold back and she lets her faith shine through in the writing. This book has love, forgiveness, second chances, and a lot more. There are tasks put to characters that make you wonder if they can handle it or how the situation will turn out and the book doesn't disappoint.
4/5 for me. I would love to go back and read the previous 7 books.
