I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, especially because if you have read and/or listened to previous stories about Andy Friessen, Laura and their family, you get a chance to see how both have grown as individuals and as a family. This time the shocker is not only the death of Andy’s evil mother Caroline, but that she left everything to Andy and the stipulations of the will. Will Andy abide to it and split his family or has he truly come to realize that Laura and his children are what matters in life? The listener gets a chance to visit with some characters introduced in other stories and if like me you have not read their stories, you are ready to dig into those as well. This is another thoughtful, thought provoking, and touching story by this talented author. With an engaging plot and complex characters that are true to life. Lastly, the narrator did a great job with the various voices.
