Just Finished The Star Garden by Nancy E. Turner

Loved it!!! Of course, I loved the other two (These is My Words, Sarah's Quilt), so I was ready to love this one. My sis Julie (Crazymama) said a couple of girls in her book group didn't like it. The only reason that I can see is that perhaps she wasn't as successful in building up the romantic tension in this book as she was in the others. The romance was just a side plot, amidst the family struggles and trials of life in territorial Arizona. However, I love her characters and want to know more. She left it open for the possiblity of another book in the series, but I'd really like to see her follow one of Sarah's children, with Sarah's life as the subplot.
