really liked it

This book was assigned in my English 232 class as part of our reading list for the Spring semester.

Nobody looks forward to reading books required for college.

However, I was surprised to find that I couldn't put this book down (except to sleep). There are only two other books, that I had to read for school, that I actually liked and I'm proud to say that this book has joined the list.

I was rooting for the sisters the entire time while hating Reb's guts so much. I hated how controlling he was and it made me so mad that he wouldn't let the girls be happy. After part one, I only really had Sara to root for. I was proud that she rebelled against her dad and never gave up on finding a future for herself without needing a man's help.

There were some sad moments, but I found it to be a happy story until the very last chapter. The last chapter, to me, it seems like Sara isn't happy anymore. She is happy, but she isn't the Sara that she wanted to be. No spoilers, though. It just felt to me that she didn't really get her happy ending that she deserved.

Overall the book was a wonderful read.
