Reviews - What do customers think about At Play in the Promised Land (California Chronicles)?
A great way to end a perfect series! Aug 9, 2001
A Play in the Promised Land was the perfect book to finish the Califonia Chronicles. Juliet, Clay, and Sully where a wonderful conbination. I really enjoyed Sully's story because it took us out of the United States for some fun in Brazil. (He didn't think it was fun, until he met a certian someone! :)) I thought Juliet was brave for taking her sisters with her to live with her. Juliet had two men in her life, I was scared she would choose the wrong man. Did she? Well I won't tell you! Find out by reading the book for yourself!
