This book is about Grace, an elderly woman who sits on the porch of her home every year on the night of the Splendor Bell Gala in New Bethany. Due to rumors and gossip the residents of the town thinks she is nothing more than a batty old lady. Four friends - Rose, Naomi, Gayle and Lucy decide to reach out and help Grace and as they do their friendship strengthens.
I was instantly drawn to this book. The story description had me thinking it would be an excellent read. I was disappointed. It was not as good as what I had built up in my mind. It is book 2 of a series and maybe if I had read book one I would of been more connected to the characters and it would of made a difference. To me it was boring, it was a struggle to keep my attention on the story. The last two chapters did pick up interest a little, but overall I just didn't care for it.
**I received this book as an ebook from Multnomah Waterbrook Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
