Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Review: Across the Years by Tracie Peterson

I've been behind in posting, so I'll pull this one from my drafts. I wrote this ages ago, as you can probably tell, but here's to hopefully remembering to put the content out there!


The last ten years have been difficult for Ashley Reynolds. Living with her grandfather and raising her daughter, Ashley has finally found an element of peace while working as a Harvey Girl in Winslow, Arizona. When a crew of architects come to build a massive resort hotel, bringing a mysterious man into her life, her world unexpectedly changes."

This book had so many twists and turns. Well, more of just unexpected KAPOWs!!! I mean, I really am just gonna go ahead and say this because if it's in the first five chapters it doesn't count as a spoiler. I couldn't believe that the EJ was actually Ethan and watching him try and get to know his family over the course of the book was so sweet. I loved how he got to know his daughter and seeing their relationship go. And how worried he was about her was so emotionally charged. Ashley was so sweet too. Seeing her fierce Mama Bear mode was the best. And wow. Her mom was a jerk! I felt so bad for Ashley. And cummon! Get your act together lady and love your granddaughter. And you daughter. And your sister. And your dad. For goodness sake! I loved Grandpa. He was the sweetest. The plot of this almost {ALMOST} reminded me of Where My Heart Belongs, but historical. In fact, I loved the time setting of this. You never read books about the Great Depression that aren't set in the Dust Bowl. This one was Arizona though! So cool. And I loved Aunt Lavelle. (Is that her name? I don't remember and I don't have the book with me.... OOPS!) But one of the best {And Worst} things about this book is that it's stand alone, so you don't have to read the other books in this series. It's kind of sad, but also nice.

4.5 Stars
