Surprise Packages by Nancy Anderson, Lael Littke, Carroll Hoefling Morris

Surprise Packages by Nancy Anderson, Lael Littke, Carroll Hoeffling Morris

This third and final vol. of The Company of Good Women trilogy was the best. Juneau lives in Pasadena, Ca and has finally been able to come to terms with a long-held secret from her youth and is reunited with the boy she and her hubby raised that their wayward daughter Misty had out of wedlock. She gets involved with a new neighbor and ward member, who is keeping her abuse a secret. Deenie is not sure of the new move from Wellsville, Utah to Gainsville, Florida, where Roger gets a promotion. She's always wanting to fix things and feels unloved at times. She gets involved with her dog Bear as a Rescue Team, which makes her feel important. Erin lives in Minnesota and finding romance in the most unexpected place after being single for several years. She doesn't find herself worthy enough to be in her RS Presidency, but finds more than she bargains for and finds she loves her calling. It's refreshing to read about LDS women with issues like we all have that can come to accept they are not perfect. Lael, Nancy and Carroll, better known as COB's, as in Crusty Old Broads, just as these three life-long women come to be known, learn a lot about life from each other and their trials. It brings them each closer when they meet up each year or so to help them strengthen each other. These three authors treat the gay issue with compassion and understanding when Cory's father and son have a difficult time with this. It takes Erin and the atonement to soften their hearts. I highly recommend this last book, as it is a big surprise package for everyone.

Forever Friends Rating 5 Stars by Teri
Until next time, Happy Reading!!!!
