Her mother's gardening skills have made the lawns and flower gardens a beautiful, amazing place to have the wedding. Daniel, the groom, is off at war, adding to the stress -- will he be able to leave his position?

The Affair at Allagash

Volume 7 of Joy Ross Davis's Sisters Divided Series. Joy brings the drama of real life -- weather and geography against the hard work of men and women into a stirring story of love and devotion as we watch a young couple work on their farm in Maine, caring for their livestock in the face of harsh winter and anticipation of the birth of their child. Characters that I've begun to watch for, Angel-candidates, Keeva and Maeve along with their mentors, Lucille and Martha and their instructor Colin all play a large part in the moments in Maine. This has been a delightful series, always well-written and edited, but growing ever more interesting and a pleasure to read. If you have missed some of the volumes, your pleasure is awaiting you. You can pick up anywhere as this author brings the story into being , then carries it through for the pleasure of the readers.
