I decided I love this series because even though the characters of each book are intertwined, you can still pick them up without worrying about not understanding something. Everyone's story pretty much ends in their book and any cameos they have in other books are more like extras than anything else. This makes it very easy for me because I'm mostly just checking out these books from the library and they don't have all the books so I can still enjoy these books without needing to skip some avail...more

Alissa Benson from Gunn's earlier Christy Miller books resurfaces in this novel. She has lost that new-convert verve and is just coasting through life when she meets Brad Phillips (linked to Lauren Phillips of ECHOES, my favorite of the Glenbrooke books) -- here the story line rather breaks down a bit, as Brad is so abrasive and egotistical that it's hard to see the attraction between the two. Gunn's romantic streak takes over with the tale of Chet & Rosie, the lovely little duplex, and the...more

This book is a good romance without any of the smut that is in some romance novels. I like it when Alissa hears about how an elderly couple had reunited in their seventies and the problems that they had gone through before reuniting with each other. Alissa runs into Brad and she starts to learn the lesson that the older couple can teach her. This book also has some of the other characters in the previous books in this series, with some of the author's humor included in the book.
I found it amazing because I started off reading Christy Miller series another series by Robin Jones Gunn and in this book it talks about Alissa a girl in the Christy Miller series and now I know after reading this how her life is and all. In the Christy Miller series Alissa did something very wrong and didn't know about God or wasn't a Christian yet but now in this book it talks about her life after accepting Christ.

I really enjoy reading these books. Each installment has a captivating plot line. I love how everyone is intertwined. The books are also spiritually uplifting because they always bring a different viewpoint or way to find/show god's love. A truly good read for anyone willing for a little romance. :)
This is one of those books that fans of the Christy Miller series will be biased toward as they see a familiar face in Alissa. It was nice to see her story see a happy ending given all the obstacles she overcame as a teenager. The way Robin manages to tie it into Glenbrooke is nice as well!
I was first introduced to this character in Gunn's Christy Miller series and it is nice to see where she ends up. I found Brad and Alissa's relationship funny and real at the same thing. I enjoyed the read. However, I wish that her story would have been flushed out a bit more.

This is a really good book. It is mostly romance but not all of it. It has some tragedy in it, it is a little slow in the middle but not all that much. I couldn't put this book down!
A good story. I thought it could be better written and the theology was pretty shallow, but I enjoy the lives of those intertwined at Glenbrooke.
Joy Gerbode
Another great re-read! Wonderful story, nice romance, great characters, lots of fun, and just in general a comfortable, pleasurable read.
I liked it, cause the characters were from other books of Robin J. Gunns, but it was also kinda obvious what was going to happen...
Jessica Fuller
Not as good as the other ones, but definitely not boring either. For it being in the middle of the series it was good.
Another great love story by Robin Jones Gunn. Love her<3 This one may have been my favorite of the Glenbrooke series.
Easy summer read. Makes me want to live in a cute duplex with colored water in the windows.
Christy Daniel
PG rated romance novel. Sappy, but sweet and interesting plot lines behind the love stories.
A more realistic love story compared to the first 3. On to book 5
I liked it but it was a little too much religion for my taste.
It was so good! One of my favorite Glenbrooke books!
