My opinion: The saga continues, these books are like a soap opera, with so much drama and unrealistic life situations thrown in. I have liked some of Ms. Coble's newer series but this series is just really a bit too much. Good thing they are so short! The characters are okay, but I had a hard time relating to them. I could see one or two bad things happening to the,.I understand the pioneers had a hard life, but all of the drama gets really old. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
