    " Pretty good as sequels go, but "The Swan House" was definitely my favorite of the two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 2/8/2014

    " This is by the same author as The Swan House which I loved. Same family, another generation, different issues. Dealing with cancer, childhood accident that led to a scarred face, trying to find where the character fits it with her family and in society. While I enjoyed the book, I didn't love it like her first book. "

    " This book was not quite as good as its predecessor "The Swan House" but still an engaging and inspiring read of a mother and daughter facing a daunting obstacle and bridging the gap that has grown between them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Watkins | 1/26/2014

    " I really enjoyed this sequel to the Swan House. I saw a lot of myself in Ellie and related to her in more ways than maybe I would like. This one was a little faster read than the Swan House and kept my interest a little more, but still a good sequel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alayne | 1/25/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie Blackbern | 1/18/2014

    " Read everything written so far! I loved Beth Musser, the author's late sister-in-law, who passed away 2 decades. Does reading Musser's books keep my sirit connected-I think so! "

    " A sequel to the Swan House. The characters are complicated and hard to like. The second half of the book redeemed the first. I love this author and would still recommend this book. "
