Rated 5 out of 5 by from A brilliant, moving and memomrable trilogy I read the three books for the first time last summer(1999) and could not put them down until the middle of the third book when my brain started lagging (each book is approx. 400 pages long and it is a heavy read), however, I found myself laughing, crying, and feeling right along with Kristen and everything she goes through trying to spend her life with the man she loves and trying not to dissapoint her family. I most truly recommend this book.
