Excellent blend

Tess Collins wrote a gripping tale that blends the mystical with the mysterious. I recommend reading the trilogy from the beginning to the end.

This is the last book in the series of three. By mistake I read it first. I finished it a few days ago and now that I have read the other two books I am back to review this one. You don't have to read all three but you get the benefit of knowing the full story if you do. The stories are all about the life of Alma and her family in the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee. She was raped as a teen and left to live in California and became an attorney. The characters in the books are wonderful.
