Glad though she always was to see her father, Amy could not help wishing he had chosen a more thoughtful time to visit.

Glad though she always was to see her father, Amy could not help wishing he had chosen a more thoughtful time to visit currently lowering over her, gave few enough hours of sunlight to get her washing dry, without having to surrender time unexpectedly. But she would far sooner cope with wet washing than risk letting her father think he might be unwelcome. Jack’s visits had become less frequent over the last year or two, as the walk across the paddocks became more of an effort.

Between us, we’ve already lost three parents; this shouldn’t be new territory. But the thing is, you never get used to it. You can never truly prepare your heart for that empty space that will ache without any cure. I sigh and rise from the couch. Olivia will be home soon, and I plan to have dinner waiting for her. If there’s even a small way I can improve her day, of course I’m going to do it. I sauté tomatoes and garlic with white wine and have a pot of linguine boiling away when I hear the door open.

My, oh my. The perfect ending to a beautiful series of three books. Amy's life from the time of being in her Father's home to the age of 38 or do, what a life; dear Lord I truly can't imagine. What a strong, kind, young woman. Don't miss one word of this woman's life, dear reader, not one word. Enjoy! I will reread, just to make sure I understand what was being portrayed.

I have now read this series of three books twice..I have very books I would do so..however this series I would even read again! I do have a question though..what happened to Amy's
David & (Sarah) Ann Elizabeth?

This the third book in this series and I was so happy to see there is a fourth and final. This book followed the life of Amy as did the first two. If you're reading this review you've already read the first two so you won't be too surprised to hear that this book deals with Amy's life with Charlie. There are a few surprises in this book that I won't get into. There is also quite a bit of abuse that happens to Amy at the hands of Charlie that I found pretty difficult to handle. I got through it and hoped she would, like I said in my book 2 review, hit Charlie over the head with her cast iron skillet. That never happened. Amy is a survivor and endures the physical and emotional abuse from Charlie. The thing I found most disturbing in this story is the relationship between Amy and Charlie at the end. All the abuse Charlie gave Amy, David and Mal it amazed me that she could forgive that monster and have compassion for him.

This is a long book and there are some parts that aren't very interesting. There's a lot of talk about the day-to-day dealings of "women's work" and childrearing however in the context of the story it continues to weave the lives of the characters together. I've enjoyed all three of these books and can't wait to read what happens in the fourth and final chapter.

Another wonderful series of books!! This is book #3, as always with a series you really need to read books #1-2 to appreciate book #4 - but I highly recommend them all. Set in Aukland, a bit of a period piece from pre, through, to just after WW I, but with the twist of being written from the point of view of another country. It develops amazing characters in a rural Aukland farming setting. It follows the life of Amy through her girlhood into her matron years and all that she goes through and all the life events and twists and turns of those times. It is brilliantly written, populated with outstanding and relatable character, a glimpse into a place, time and way of living that varies greatly from our own, yet, we are all humans and our modern times are full of the same dramas. You will find yourself wanting to read on...

I highly recommend this series and this book is a fine part of it!!

I am so enjoying the continuing saga of this inter-generational New Zealand farming family at the turn of the 20th century. They all seem so vivid and real to me. In this third installment, Amy, the protagonist, starts finding some happiness in her life, and it's about time. Not sure what is left to happen in the final installment, but I'll buy it to find out; I'm invested in these characters that leap from the pages and into my heart.

I very much enjoyed all three books in this series. Loved the people in this small village and thought each family was very distinctive and each individual very well drawn.
Amy's story is both heartbreaking and.at time heartwarming. She is a kind and generous woman and gives herself ceaselessly to her ungrateful husband and her son's. I loved also that the stories were set in New Zealand. I think this is a.... Most certainly must read for anyone who loves a good story.

I really wanted to give the first book 4 stars because I hate to get a book that you HAVE to get the sequel. I tried not to get the second book but I was so hoping that Amy would find happiness with Charlie. I just had to find out. Three books later I knew the answer. I just got so wrapped up in the characters, go and bad, that I couldn't stop! I'm even going to have to read the other books of Shayne Parkinson. I guess that all of these books surely deserve 5 stars.

This is, overall, a good book. However, it seems to be about twice as long as it needs to be. Part of that may be because the book is the stories of more than one couple: maybe it would have been better to split them apart, though.
As part of a series, of course the characters are fairly well established. The new additions are a little sketchy at first, first this author has a knack for the right words to define a character, depending on descriptions not only of clothing, but also of movement and speech.
I find that there is an excess of specific dialogue. A strong editor would perhaps have shortened the book through removal of some of this extraneous worthiness ... but it may have been the author's attempt to make the story reflect the near hopelessness of Amy's situation, as she and her story are the back bone of the series.
This book is not the end of the series. However, it could have been, as it contains a lot of pieces that could be triumphant ends for everyone.
I really loved the 4 books in this series as far as the story lines go. I didn't care for the harshness of the character, Charlie. I can't imagine any woman allowing herself or her children to be treated that way, no matter the circumstances. Doesn't there HAVE to be another way? But that was the story. However,,I was annoyed by this whole set of books because I do not like a book to end unfinished so the reader is required to buy the next book to continue the story. That seems to me to be some kind of literary extortion. I also, personally, do not like books that end sad. But I liked the characters, so I kept hoping. The 4th book finally, some would say finally settles everything and ends happily. The end was OK for me, but I wanted Amy to finally find real romantic love with a good man who appreciated her and knew how to love her, after all that struggle!-- not in graphic terms, just knowing she had found the satisfaction she longed for all her life.
