I have read Beverly Lewis books before and usually enjoy them. I would rate this one as merely okay.
I listened to the audiobook version and the narrator's voice came out sounding too little-girlish for my liking. I felt it tainted some of the story and made certain sections sound like a spoiled brat was saying them--I'm not sure that was the intent of the author.
Early on in the book, much is made of Lettie having a secret. In fact, it was hinted at so often that I wished the author would either just let us readers in on the secret so we'd know (even if the other characters didn't) or just reveal it so we could move on.
We do eventually learn Lettie's secret (or at least part of it), but there are other plot points that aren't resolved.
Will Lettie return to her family on her own? Will her daughter Grace go searching for her--and if Grace does find her, will she convince Lettie to come home? What happened to the baby? (I have a suspicion on that, but only reading further in the series will know if my suspicion is correct.) Will Heather's father build a house on the Lancaster County land he purchased? Will Heather get treatment for her illness? Will she ever get to see the holistic healer?
Just too many unanswered plot points for me to give this more than an average rating.
