I have to admit, I enjoyed this story in the end. I have to admit, I did have trouble finishing it. I have a difficult time reading about conniving family members. I don't understand the mindset and I personally find it disturbing to read about. So when I get books like that I just want to put them away from me. BUT I promised to read it through, so I did, and in the end I am glad that I did.
The conniving family members didn't get away with it.
The wayward son was brought to "heel".
And "the good guys" came out alright in the end, despite suffering hardship.
And of course, love found a way through.
This is a light historical romance, back in the day of the handmade pottery business, when reform was just starting to occur.
Should you read it?
Of course. :) If you like light romance, like having a Christian theme run through it, and enjoy learning a few things as you read. I know much more about the pottery business now than I did before starting the book and it's good to learn new things whilst enjoying a good read. :)
