Kacy Barnett-Gramckow is a new-to-me author. While The Blessing started off on the slow side for me, it picked up speed. The fate of the tightly-knit family kept me engaged, while the steadfast determination of May propelled the story forward.
I'm giving The Blessing five stars for its great story and historical content. I'll be checking out this author's other books.
