My Review

 This is a beautifully written story by three authors, and as one story ended the next starts seamlessly!

We have a spunky Grandmother about to reach her 80th birthday, her daughter Adale, and her daughter Jolene and niece Mattie. These delightful, talented women will warm your heart, and they share their lives and thoughts with us.

These women love their town and are descendants of the founder, and now they are helping to restore the Chapel that was damaged in a hurricane.

This is a story of forgiveness, and it resonates throughout, and we are gifted some sweet love stories.

A very enjoyable read!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review
