Poorly written

I have listened to the entire series. The main character from first book drags out into all three books before her story has a good ending. The material in this last book was poorly written, and very unbelievable. I won't mention the details, as I don't want to spoil the story line for anyone who still might want to get it. Although this narrator does a good job, it was very disappointing that the same narrator that did the first two did not narrate this one.

Wish the same reader had been used throughout

Did Barbara McCulloh do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I don't think she was nearly as good as the reader of the first two books. And it stunted the story to change it 2/3 of the way through the series. I'd become used to the "voices" of the various characters and then it all changed.

Lovely

Wrap up of this amazing series. Suspense, love and God’s grace all play a part as this family saga wraps up.

This this trilogy

This is a good read and I recommend the trilogy to anyone who’s interested in Christian romance with a little bit of drama. The narrator was wonderful, she’s become one of my favorites.

Love the story!

The story line was wonderful but I was really disappointed that the narrator changed from the previous 2 books. I've heard Barbara McCulloh reading other books & she's done a good job but I had a hard time distinguishing between the characters this time. But I still recommend this book.

Boring Awful Read

Don't bother reading this book, the characters are boring and the storyline is dreadful.The narrator also uses the same voice for almost all of her characters and slips in and out of character.

Religious Undertones

There are religious undertones to this book that I wasn't expecting. I did take into account the time period and understand that nearly everyone during that time period would have been religious, or at least brought up to believe in the church. However, it wasn't what I expected and took me away from the story from time to time. It started out a bit slow, but the dilemma of the situation did keep me listening.
