A light read I enjoyed the main character and the attention to details Too often writers seem to think babies and children are just on pause when they re not on screen That s not so and if you arrest a nursing mother provision has to be made Kristen McKendry doesn t lose track of things like that. I would actually rate this as a 3 It is an entertaining book This author doesn t research very well so some things she writes don t add up if you are familiar with the context of her stories here it was farm life If those kinds of things bother you, you probably won t enjoy it, but I will read her books again.
