Patience and Love was a beautiful story

This mother was wise but caring and compassionate. I enjoyed the story and found the daughter Cassie in the next book, "Getting some of her own" I love the auther and wish Audible would get more books from Gwynne Forster. I recommend When twilight comes to anyone. Gread Read...

Enlightening!

I really loved the story line because it exposed the truth of sibling rivalry when it comes to money! I especially like "Marge" because with love she did not cater to her childrens selfishness and yet without malice she rewarded the deserving one. Also, I admired how she accepted death with grace and dignity. She reminds me alot of myself with my relationship with my children........ I never sugarcoat anything! As for the narrator, I can listen to anything Caroline Clay reads........... she is my favorite!
