Publisher's Summary

Fresh out of college, Aggie Milliken thinks she's prepared for anything life can throw her way. Think again, Aggie! After the abrupt loss of her sister and brother-in-law, Aggie is stunned to find herself the sole guardian of their eight lively children. If learning basic parenting skills wasn't complicated enough, she must also battle the children's half-crazed grandmother, survive a massive remodeling project, and navigate the waters of new friendships - alone. She has little experience with children and none with housekeeping, and it shows. What she has going for her is grit, a double dose of determination, and the confidence that this is exactly where the Lord wants her to be. With an unlimited P-mail account and enough hymns to keep her spirits bolstered, she tackles one catastrophe after another. It seems like nothing Aggie does is right, but ready or not, here she comes!

great story

Wish the rest were on audio, as I don't have much time to read, but lots of drive time to listen. Enjoyed it very much.

Amazing

I love this book and Jennifer Ford really bring it to life. Chautona Havig really knows how to draw you into a story and make the characters feel real. It's almost as if they live down the road!!! The music adds great affects. I cannot wait to hear more.

great christian book

loved this book the funniest part was when sleep deprived she found out she had put coffee instead of the baby formula into his bottle. many laughs as she learns to be a mom to eight orphaned children left in her care when her sister died in a accident.....while she has to contend with a mother-in-law who disapproves the fact the children were left in her care. serious, yet hilarious as I listened. and no illicit sex...yeah!!!! this book was best I have listened to for a long time. I highly recommend this book!!!

Not her best, but good

I like this author a lot, and this was the first of her stories I read--and now I've read almost all of them. Very appealing characters!
