I think it's fair to say that L. N. Cronk is not afraid of difficult subjects. She makes us love her characters. And in this heartbreaking book she makes us say goodbye. But she deals with pain with a deft hand, so that there is light in the dark, I'm 72% of the way through this book, so I don't know how it's going to end. Only that it IS going to end. The characters are so human, so real.

Ok, I've finished. And this one cracked me. This one brought tears to my eyes. Heartbreaking, and hauntingl

I finished this book yesterday while traveling, the good news was it made the travel go by much faster, the bad news was I was crying so much people had to wonder what was up.

This is the last book told by David in LN Cronk's Chop Chop series.
The good news is she is writing 2 more from other people's point of view.

I LOVED this book, now agreed there was lots of questions that went unanswered - like when did they go from 2 (3) children to 6. Did they ever reconnect with Amber?

I was taken aback w

I still love this series, but as with anyone that you fall in love with and they pass on a part of your heart has gone with them. I couldn't imagine what David was going through or the ones around him, but it is the trust you have with God that will get you threw anything. On to book 7.

Five stars to the whole series (well, at least the first 6 so far...). As a hopeless romantic, I loved reading about these main characters starting out as children and growing into grandparents and all the people in their lives. Everything they dealt with was realistic. Death, God, growing pains, forgiveness, murder, marriages, sacrifice, miscarriages, justice, reunion, sickness, ultimate true love, children, friendship, and again death. Everything circled back around and feels complete after fi ...more

This book tackled the hard fought battles a family faces when one of its members has Alzheimer’s. It shows the heartbreak, joy and pain of dealing with someone with this disease. The book is definitely emotional, yet wraps up Laci and David’s story. It is different than the previous books, but was perfect for where it is in the series. Good job on the series and I definitely plan on finishing the series.

This book takes place twenty years after returning to Mexico. Laci and David are faced with sad news. As David deteriorates, Tanner retires from the high school and moves in with them to help care for David. David then develops cancer and continues to disappear in front of Laci and Tanner's eyes. They have to say goodbye to David.

I finished this book just now and I cannot wait till I can afford to get the next book! It helps you get through some tough times yourself as well as feel as though you are right there with Dave , Laci and Tanner. I was worried about how this book would end because you know what is going to happen and you think the worst will happen but the author has made the end perfect! I love all of the books so far and recommend them to all.

I could not put this book down. I love the series because of how it reminds us that God does provide and He has plans for us, even when they do not seem to fit into our own. Very touching

I hate to give this one a 3, but I didn't love it like the others. I suppose it's life and I do appreciate that the stories are one's that people can relate to, but this one is pretty depressing! I hated to read what was happening, even though it was still good. I am assuming the other 2 books mentioned aren't out yet as I can't find them anywhere! I can't wait to read more and hope it happens!

This book was good but upset me lil because it jumped 20 years into the future and only gave a glimpse of what had happened during that time span. i was mad cus i was like "whaaa they got amber back and had more kids, how the hell she go skip all of that and jump to the end" i was ready to go off half cocked until the end note!!! Thx LN for the inevitable surprise once again you never fail to twist.

Just can't help but wonder if the author wrote Gone as a loved one who experienced Alzheimer s and wrote in love and tribute. Would have been good to have known more of David and Laci's lives during the 20 years that were jumped.

All in all a strong representation of Christian faith in everyday life. I truly enjoyed how the author develops her characters.

Not just for teenagers! This one takes the characters right up to my age group. Some of the struggles are MORE than relevate to my life and the lives of my family and friends. Can not recommend this series enough! Will be hard to wait for next two books. God is working in this authors life in such a strong and powerful way. May God bless you LN Cronk.

I liked this book better than the last one, it felt like being back to square one only that we already knew the characters and their attitudes about life were already built. If there's a book to talk about love no matter what the circumstances are, this is it. Perfect way to "end up" the series, though I'm anxiously waiting for the next two books.

Gone but not really

What can I possibly say here? The most moving of them all. The conclusion (sort of) of this series impacted me in many ways. Having become invested in the lives of David and Laci - their life of love and commitment are inspiring. A beautiful love story.

I have no words

Again, I am blown away by Ms. Cronk's ability to pull one into a story. I keep thinking about all of the books leading to this one. And I look forward to the remaining books in the series.

I really enjoyed this book, as I have all the books in this series. Lots of questions were answered. I did spend most of the book in tears, so if that's a turn off for you, you've been warned.

Amazing--this book was both heart-wrenching and uplifting at the same time. I do wish they'd fix the typos on kindle, though. I love that the story doesn't end here, either.

L. N. Cronk has made me fall in love with each and every character in this series. Every book has portrayed a christian message that touches the heart.

I wish I could give half stars, because I'd give this one 4.5. Never read a series quite like it before. Get ready for a whirlwind of emotion!
