It wraps up the story of Jeb & the Welby's well, but I would love to see another book letting us know what happens to the Welby's as they mature, what happened to Claudia, and especially her children, and it would also be fun to see what else happens with Jeb and Fern (do they have children of their own, take in more children, etc.)
I guess all good things must come to an end. The entire series is written well, and Ms. Hickman has woven a beautiful story.
On a side note, this was a book I read on my Kindle. I must say the editing in this book, and the previous (Whisper Town) was much, much better than the first two.
In Ardmore the Welby children are reunited with their sister Claudia, who lives in Norman, Oklahoma. She has 2 small children and has been abandoned by her husband. Feeling pushed to leave the only family she has known, seventeen year old Angel goes with Claudia to take care of the children and to begin a life that is not of her choosing.
Jeb decides for Fern's sake not to take the position in Oklahoma but finds out Gracie worked this out so he could return to Church in the Dell. Realizing God's hand is involved Jeb and the Welby children move to Oklahoma City and Fern moves to her mother's in Ardmore till the wedding in December.
Back in Ardmore Fern must face the past she left behind. While with Claudia circumstances force Angel to run off with an older man with a questionable job. Frantically Jeb and Fern search for Angel as they realize the police and the FBI are searching for the man Angel has ran off with.
Can Jeb find Angel and bring her home? What of this man she has run off with? What has happened in Fern's past to cause her to have to face? Will the First Community Church and Oklahoma City be the life they are dreaming of?
This is truly an awesome book. With all the twists and turns this book is really a page turner. From beginning to end this novel keeps you on your toes waiting to see what happens next. This is truly a book of fiction and romance and history as it takes place during the Depression. Women of all ages from teen up will thoroughly enjoy the story as it unfolds. As you read "Earthly Vows" don't worry if you have not read the rest of the series as each book stands alone. But very seldom does a series of books come along that is written so well and keeps you wanting more but the author Patricia Hickman has done just that. Not only does each book stand alone as a story unto its self, but as a series is phenomenal. The author has really done an awesome job with The Millwood Hollow Series but especially "Earthly Vows" which is the icing on the cake. Sadly this is the 4th and final book in the series. Sadly that we must leave the Nubeys and the Welbys behind but what is read and learned within its pages will stay with you for a long time.
