I am sad to leave this series of books behind, but better to leave wanting more than to keep writing more stories and have people wanting the saga to end. Getting to know these folks was very endearing to me and they will stay with me as I walk by these books on my bookshelf and recall with fondness their stories.

Frank Hammond wants to make a life for himself away from the shadow of his family, who never thought he could make it on his own. He will make a 230 mile journey, helping his brother Sam move and finds an opportunity for him in a small town with lots of possibilities. Sarah, his fiance' loves Frank very much, but doesn't love the thought of moving away from family and friends, and she also worries about Frank being out there on his own. But this sudden change in both of their lives will help them discover some new truths and test their faith once again.

Sarah's promise was, "I promise to trust you, Lord. And I promise to trust Frank, no matter what comes. Even if I do have 'marrying nerves'". Some of Sarah's struggles: "Perfect submission, all is at rest. . . The words to that hymn entered my mind unbidden. And for a moment it just didn't seem right. How could submission be fair? Why couldn't I just make the decisions I wanted to make and have what I wanted?" Sarah's struggles are common to man and I appreciated how the author was open and honest about Sarah's struggle. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with these families and encourage all to read both these series in the order written. You won't be sorry.

I am saddened to say that this author has passed away; she had a great ability to tell a story that had meaning and a message. She will be missed and will be one listed under my 'favorite authors' list. ( )
