I GIVE THIS BOOK:
A Clearing in the Wild
This was a very interesting story, more so once I realized it was based on a true story. At times it was hard to like it, because of the way Emma was treated, but at the same time I think that was true to the story. I liked seeing Emma mature and it was nice seeing how she handle herself during difficult times. I don't think this is a story everyone would enjoy, but I liked it enough to continue with the series.
A Tendering in the Storm
This story was a little different because the POV switches every chapter or two from Emma's and Louisa's. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like that, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit because I got to know Louisa more this way...and even understand why she is the way she is. There were some sad events and seeing how the people involved dealt with them was interesting.
A Mending at the Edge
A nice conclusion to the trilogy, though I thought it ended abruptly. Some of the things Emma did were annoying, but her behavior fit the circumstances in which she was so I can't complain too much about it. All in all, a good series that I enjoyed but not one I'd recommend to everyone. I think this is a series you have to have patience with to enjoy.
