I read this book due to the fact that I had read the other two books and wanted to find out what happened to the Lundquist family. And quite honestly, I was a tad disappointed in the book. The reason that I was tad disappointed was because I had hoped that the book wouldn't be as cliched as the second book, but sadly it was, at least in sections of the book. I did find that towards the end of the book that the storyline improved, but only slightly. It nicely closed out the series, although I would have liked to have the middle child, a daughter, more involved in the story, even if it were only through letters, etc.
