Award-winning author Sandra Orchard pulls out all the stops in this breakneck and breathtaking conclusion to the Port Aster series. Fans will not be disappointed by the surprises they find inside.
The exciting conclusion to a fantastic series!
I have absolutely loved the main characters throughout this series. Kate and Tom are so incredibly well written. They both have a lot of past hurts that keep rearing their ugly heads and causing both of them trouble. Most of their problems are in the form of not knowing who to trust and how to relate to each other to help build trust. There is also an ongoing struggle with trying to trust God. This is definitely an area where they both need to grow and it great to follow along as they work on it.
There are a number of additional characters that show up in this book that either haven’t been there at all in the previous books or else they only received a brief mention before. The pool of secondary characters becomes even cloudier as the story progresses as to who are good guys and who are bad guys. This made for a very enjoyable read as I HAD to find out the truth. I wanted so badly for Kate and Tom to be safe and achieve the happily-ever-after that I felt they deserved after all the danger they had gone through.
I received a free eBook copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
