A wonderful read! It is much more enjoyable than the previous book in the series, because there was more of a storyline taking place, and not so much monotone talk of history. I'm quite pleased with the makings of two more marriages in the younger generation of Grandmother Elsie's family, and I look forward to the upcoming weddings. Excited for the next book now!
