Reviews - What do customers think about The Tender Years (A Prairie Legacy, Book 1)?
Good, but not my favorite Apr 26, 2010
Despite the fact that anyone who has read the Love Comes Softly series is anxious for continuation of Clark and Marty's lives, this was not my favorite book. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it and I think that anyone who loves these characters will enjoy it. It's just that after you write a certain number of books about the same people, the originality starts to fade. I noticed that in Gibert Morris' House of Winslow series. The first books are excellent, but not the very end ones. I liked this book, but it just doesn't quite compare with the original series.
