I just finished reading Bygones and loved it! It's the 17th LaVyrle Spencer book I've read this summer and I'm nowhere near close to stopping. This was such a satisfying book. It touched on areas completely different from her other books. Pain of a broken family, years of separation, grown children and growth and change and ultimately a reconnection of estranged protagonists with a very satisfying ending. I found, like all the others, that I had a great deal of difficulty putting the book down and doing things I should/needed to do. Prior to this, I finished November of the Heart. Oh........such a wonderful story of forbidden love, realized, tested, and ultimately love winning out. This was one I immediately had to re-read my favorite sections of. I never wanted to put it down! Before that, I had finished Family Blessings, and at the risk of repeating myself, I didn't want to put it down and I re-read my favorite sections over and over.....and over again! I can't emphasize how satisfying these books are. I decided they needed to be a part of my personal library and began purchasing them all in hardcover. I'm sure I'll want to read them many more times. I only wish I could thank LaVyrle for enriching my life with her beautiful stories that have touched me in ways I can't express.
