Roxanne Henke's fourth release in the "Coming Home to Brewster" series will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions as you read through it. With her average, people-next-door characters and the everyday situations they experience, you will feel as if you've come home to Brewster yourself. Ms. Henke takes three very different people and intertwines their lives so expertly you barely notice the pieces joining together. I personally enjoyed Ida Bauer and her Biblical gems of wisdom, along with her strong German accent. While this is the fourth book in the series, it is also a stand-alone novel independent of the other books in the series. This reviewer has now had her interest peaked in seeking out the others.
