Lena Rivers is one of my all time favorite books. I read it about 3 to 4 times a year, and I never get tired of it. The story line is great. It makes you happy at one minute and then in the next chapter your sad and are wondering how they are going to get out of the problem, and then when you think it could not get any worse she raps up the story and you give a huge sigh of relief. I love how Mary J. Holmes portrays her characters and her story that makes you feel that you are right there with them. This is a great book that I will read for many more years to come.
