Wow! By the time I finished this book I was so annoyed with it. I can't believe how many 4 and 5 star ratings this book got. First of all there was no cohesive plot. Just a bunch of events that happen. Second of all, it was sooo negative. I was so sick of Tamra and her incessant whining. And every time she was surprised, or shocked or horrified, she put her hand over mouth. Stansfield couldn't come up with any other ways to express that type of emotion I guess. I got so sick of reading that phra ...more

I liked this book because it was easy to read and to feel the truth of the principles the author writes about. The characters, Jess and Tamra seems to have more than their share of problems, but as I think about it, I think most of us have some of the same issues and so it resonates as source of enlightment to use in our own lives. I've learned much from her writing.

May 28, 2010 Stephanie rated it it was ok
it was kinda depressing and it raised more questions than it answered. the charcters kinda bugged me espically tamera whineing that shes whining was super abnoxious. it was still uplifting but just not half as good as the books before. I think she(Anita Stanfield) could have taken the ideas in this book and sepperated them makeing more books and leaving less questions unanswered it just seemed to be a jumble of ideastrowen together without much thought to all the affects of their actions.

I liked this one better than the 3rd book and I really had a hard time putting it down. I think I am getting a little tired of Anita Stansfield books now that I have read a ton of them, but I have two more in this series that I am going to finish after I read a couple other books first!

I gave this four stars because the book really potrayed real life situations that I am interested in and made it more of an actual real-life situation than an impossible real-life romance. Good book!

Book number four in the series and again tears were's just really neat to read a novel where the characters have the same values and beliefs as I do. It's cool to read the novel and understand what they are talking about fully. EVERYONE visit my mom at the church library so you can read these novels...they are amazing...I want to live in australia and meet the Hamiltons...if they were real!!hahha

The romance in the second and third books of this series were supper cheesy, even for me. This book took a breat from all that, and it was like a breath of fresh air. This book didn't have a supper strong plot, but it was still enjoyable. I enjoyed it more than the last two books.
This book is like the 2nd one in the series in that it felt more like a chronicle of life than a novel with a cohesive plot. Because I really like these characters, it was worth reading. I especially liked the small continuation of Sean & Tara's story.
An Eternal Bond is the fourth of the Gables of Legacy series. It journeys into the changing lives of the Hamilton family and explores how adversity can bless and unite families in eternal bonds of love.

I liked this one because the story was about a young couple and the challenges and insecurities they face. They seemed like real life issues.

It was interesting to see how applying the atonement of Jesus Christ can really elivate self appointed burdens in peoples lives.

Tamra and Jess deal with "stuff" because what other plot complications are there now that the patriarch of the family is dead?
