Cat's Review
I bought the boxed set and read the prequel, Sacred Intentions, first, then I read The Girl in the Lighthouse, followed by All That is Beautiful.

I thought it was a shame that the sequel was released last and that many people read it after Lily’s story. I thought that Sacred Intentions was a perfect first book and it was interesting to see the parallell’s between Amelia and Lily’s lives.

I was able to connect more with Amelia than with Lily and I felt compassion for Amelia as I saw her lively chi
I was surprised that there were 3 books in one so to speak - very good value.

Was not sure about the stories being told in the 1st person, however I got used to this and and they all flowed very easily, form disaster to depressingly hard times, extreme happiness to extreme sadness. While I really liked this collection, I did find myself asking why oh why do some people (not just women) not voice their questions (regardless of era or social situation!)Then sometimes the story would not have those
One of the weirdest books I've read in quite a while. Set during the turmoil time of the Civil War, this story centers around a young girl who was a beloved spoiled child. Her father gave her everything she needed in the absence of a dead mother but everything changed when the father married another woman. Woe is the young girl. Throw in the Civil War and secret brothers, and presto, you have the Arrington Trilogy, incest and all.
Would recommend if you want to read a totally not historical fict
Twisted but interesting. But i wouldnt read it again.
Very good book!! Touching and tragic. Without giving to much away it was a well written book that spans 2 lives, a mom's life and then her daughter's life. The tragic lives that both women lead, all in the name of love. It just goes to show, love is patient.

This was a good trilogy. I didn't lose interest through them. It showed the civil war times well and how family can be everything or your nightmare but in the end it all happens for a reason. I would recommend to others.
This is by far my favorite book series! Wow! Such a tragic, dramatic, and interesting storyline. Honestly, I was very surprised. I've read it 4 times and I keep discovering new little secrets every time. Love!
This was a great read from the beginning. The two main female characters in this story suffer too much for my taste, it seems as if the world is out to get them.
The tragically destructive female narrators and often generic plot somehow do not keep these books from being incredibly addictive. I didn't sleep.
