A delightful return to visit with Anna and Felty at Huckleberry Hill, Wisconsin.
Anna and Felty are joined by their grandson, Reuben as he flees his hometown of Sugarcreek, Ohio after being jilted by his fiancé for his best friend. Soon to follow is Fern, his best friend’s little sister. Whatever is he going to do to make her see that he cannot forgive the two people he loved the most? Will Anna be able to work her magic on these two with her knitting or has she finally met her match?
From book one I have absolutely loved the wisdom that Anna and Felty share with the young’uns. My favorite passage in this book is: “The measure of a man isn’t how popular he is with friends, but how he treats those who have nothing to give him.” A lesson I think we all can be reminded of time and time again.
I appreciate that Beckstrand doesn’t feel the need for bible verses every other page. She gets the point across of living a Christian life through your actions to others and how you view the world.
Jennifer Beckstrand has done a wonderful job in making the characters come alive in the heart of the reader. You find yourself cheering, being angry and even crying when her characters do in the book. I am looking forward to another visit to Huckleberry Hill in the future.
Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington for an ARC of this book for my own honest opinion.
