Review:  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥  ♥

This novel finishes off Ann Shorey’s “At Home In Beldon Grove Series”. I’ve enjoyed reading about Molly who wouldn’t let being a young widow with four young children stop her and about her brother, Matthew, who fought discouragement during a time of great grief to keep a town and a church together. But I think I like Luellen, Molly’s daughter, the best of all. Shorey kept throwing insurmountable odds ins Luellen’s direction, and Luellen would not give up. She kept fighting to do what she believed God called her to do. She not only has her mother and uncle’s perseverance, she surpasses it. I won’t tell you what happens, but this novel will encourage anyone who’s had to deal with obstacles blocking their way. Another great novel by Ann Shorey.
