My rating: 3.5 Stars
My opinion: Alright...I have to admit..the book was cheesy and predictable, but had such an innocence that IT WORKED FOR ME!! There was just something so heartwarming about this book that I couldn't put it down...even though I knew what the ending was going to be and there were no twists in surprises. I absolutely fell in love with the Pastor Calvert and the Spinster Clark!!
Readers who love author Jeanette Oke...will love this book! I honestly thought I was reading a JO book and she is on the list of my favorite religious fiction authors.
