really liked it
Read from August 19 to 24, 2012

This book can stand alone, but after reading the other 7 books in the series , over the years, I really enjoyed this one....hated to see it end....... I read another review that said they tired of the brand name references of things, but if you've read the other books, brand name dropping,and cultural references of the time period the books are set, was the norm,and part of their charm......
I long to feel the cool San Fransisco breezes off the bay while lounging on the porch of 28 Barbary Lane, hearing Anna singing in the night feel like a part of the characters lifes,and this is what makes the story so charming,and makes you want to experience life of a time and place such as San Fransisco.......

If you enjoy reading of a time forgotten,and a time of complete and utter carefree living, this whole series is for you...... and do see the movies, after you read the books. This one was a welcome addition to the series.....they say it's the last, but Armistead, what makes these books so great is I could continue to read about your fantastic characters, in many books to come, and never tire of those delightful people you write about bringing their joys,and sorrows to the surface.....
