Latane, I finished your wonderful book this afternoon. I am so very sad that it is over. It is one of the best books I have ever read!!!! I plan on sending it to my sister in South Carolina next week. I just know she would love it.Mary and Tom just amazed me! You made them real life people...as well as all the other members of the family. They were full fledged workers, who set their hearts on something and they proved they could get it. Janie was the sweetest of all. She endured so much when she thought Will was lost at sea. I was shocked at the ending. It made me love the book even more.I have to say, I think it was one of the best books I have ever read!! Truly and honestly! I have read many books for the last 50 years. Yours made me feel part of , as if I was right there helping Mary milk the cow or do the dishes. What a family. I really wish all of our families values and moral were as they were in the house of Mary and Will.Thank you so much for writing this wonderful book. I was seriously a joy to read. I know you said you would not write another one but If you ever do.....I will be the first to line up to read it! You proved yourself to be a very fine and eloquent writer. Be proud!Love, Susannah
