I really enjoy reading books that are from times long ago. The Merritt sisters are all interesting characters in their own ways. Each of the sisters have someone involved in the war and it's interesting how they are all dealing with it. I enjoy reading about the family dynamics and how different life was then compared to now. I haven't read anything by Ann Gabhart before, but I really enjoyed how alive she made the characters for me, so I will be checking into her other books in the future.
