Ann Shorey is the author of The Edge of Light and has published selections in the Cup of Comfort series and in Chicken Soup for the Grandma's Soul
My thoughts: First off, I have not read the first book in this series so I am coming into the middle of the story. There were a couple things that were mentioned I knew nothing of. It only happened once or twice so it was nothing major. That said, I did enjoy reading this story. I have never read anything by this author so it was a first. I am glad to say I will be reading more of hers when they come out!!
When the book first started I really did not care for either of the parents in the story. They both seemed self centered and not really caring about the other. Ellie, to me, was way to touchy about the children. By the time I read a little more I saw things from her point of view and why she felt that way. I really liked Matthew and the way the author portrays his thoughts and feelings.
Another reason I really liked this book was that the author incorporated some of her family history into these books. That to me was really neat! You should definitely buy this book at your nearest bookstore.
