Though the one catching his eye is not his pupil but Madge. If she finds out the truth will she be able to trust him? Will Judd be able to forgive the man who did his family wrong and will they both find true love? Read the book to find out.

This is book one in the series about three sisters. This book was okay but not as good as I had hoped.

What I liked: The author is a good writer and I enjoyed the characters. The time period of the early 1930’s is not an era I have read a lot about so I found it interesting. How hard everyone had to work to survive at that time was pretty heart breaking.

What I don’t like: The story line was hard for me to get into. Madge’s family barely had enough money to pay the mortgage yet her mom hired a tutor. They talked about how the money was for the ad but I would figure it would cost more then room and board to pay for it. The revenge story line was kind of weak and there was really no climax to the story. I really finished the book feeling kind of blah about the whole book.

I did like the writing style and think for me it was just the storyline it’s self I just did not enjoy it. I did like the characters and look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens to the other sisters.
