Great for Younger Readers Oct 17, 2007
I read this book when I was around 15 for the first time and it was one of my favorite books. I remember I was incredibly sad that the book ended; I just wanted it to keep going forever.
I am now about ten years removed from then and decided to re-read this much beloved book. This time I was really disappointed. It was a lot shorter than I remember and the characters were incredibly two-dimensional. I didn't feel like I really got to know the main character, Cassandra, on a level more than a detailed obituary. Her husband and children were even less detailed.
I think I loved the book the first time so much because it took me longer to read and I thought about the characters a lot so I must have made made up my own character details. But reading what was just given this time, there was nothing about this book I really enjoyed and was disappointed that ended because I felt like I never really got to know anyone.
I recommend this book to younger readers, maybe they'll have the time to add in with their imagination what the author left out.
Every one shoulds read this book Oct 28, 2005

Heartwarming story Mar 5, 2005
I have read many books by Janette Oke. This was the best. I am now reading it for the third time in a row. Before I read it, I took having a good life for granted. After I read it, I realized how lucky I am. Janette Oke has really inspired me with this book. If you have not read this heartwarming story, you really have missed out and need to read it.
