This is a consistently good series, with the kind of small town characters you can wrap your arms around. At times I felt like there wasn't a whole lot happening - and it's true that the books in this series aren't exactly action packed. However, there truly is a lot going on in the hearts and minds of the characters and the author does a great job portraying those inner thoughts and struggles. Oh - and I thank the Lord for the "Dorothys" in my life. Their memories are a blessing forever.
I like this series, the characters are sweet people, and the stories are mostly just like real life. Dorothy is about 87, I think, and lives in southern Illinois. She is very involved in her community and her church. The books are categorized as Christian fiction, and Dorothy's faith, along with her good common sense, are a gift she shares with those around her.
Listening to these books has given me a greater insight into listening to the voice of God and seeing him in everyday events. I like this 89 year old Clarinet playing sensible woman who is a character with a great heart.

Partonville is celebrating The Centennial Plus 30 event along with the Pumpkin Festival. Lots of interesting things surface during the run up to this weekend including the unveiling of the Core Four Covenant.
This is the third book of a series of six. I am getting ready to read the fourth and have just ordered the last two from my local library.
Not as good as the first two. Author seems to have lost sight of the characters' personalities. Almost seems like someone else wrote it.
Beautifully done. Reminiscent of the Cedar Circle books by Beverly Lahaye and Terri Blackstock.
Fluffy Christian fiction. Heavy doses of spiritual life experiences.
