When Jana is thirty years old, she goes through channels to find her birth mother, which she does and this is where her story now fits into the first two books of this trilogy. As with the first books, there are pages of introspection by Jana with little dialogue or action, which slows the story down. But once this story fits into the first two books and merges, then the story becomes fascinating. Jana, her adopted mother and her birth mother are all characters who dwell more in their own self-interests than those of their children. As a result, the reader has a tendency to judge these women and perhaps even dislike them at times, but the author throws the various weaknesses and strengths of human nature at us and I found myself wondering what I would do under the same circumstances.
The characters are well developed and for those readers who enjoy digging into the depths of human nature relative to love, jealousy, self-centeredness, religion, you will enjoy this book, especially since it ties up their lives as portrayed in the first two books.
I was given this e-book as a complimentary copy for an honest review.
The introduction of Jana, a young woman whose life is filled with love, unanswered questions, marriage, children - both biological and a step son, brings a new element to the story.
Jeanette Vaughan does a wonderful job of weaving the old story line with the new and creates a book that will leave the reader wanting more of the story of a family they have come to know and love.
Excellent job Ms. Vaughan!
