I absolutely loved the All of a Kind Family series but I was disappointed in this one. As much as I liked Ella, I agreed with the reviewer who said she was disappointed in Ella. She was so close to her sisters in the other books but now she finds them a pain, especially Sarah, the one she was closest to. I realize Ella was 19 in this book, but Sarah was 15 so she and Ella should have had a lot more in common. I'm sorry the series ended with this book. I would have liked to see one more book--maybe one that took place 5 or 10 years later when the other children were young adults. I would have liked to have seen how they turned out. I also would have liked to have known about the 7th child. Was it a girl or a boy? It would have been nice to have some closure on this series.
By the way, just thought I'd throw this question out: Which child do you think Sydney Taylor was? Ella would have been too obvious. I thought maybe she was Charlotte since Charlotte was the dreamer and always making up stories, etc. But that might have been too obvious as well. Maybe Henny . . .
