The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr


The Family Gathering by Robyn CarrCoolCoolHeartHeartThumbs upThumbs up

The Family Gathering by Robyn Carr reminds us about how families can find each other even after years apart.  The book brought us Dakota Jones, who moved near his siblings when he was finished with being in the armed forces.  He felt separated from them after leaving home as soon as he could. Sullivan’s Crossing is just the place for him, with other people who are down to earth and accepting of him.  This is the third novel in the Sullivan’s Crossing Series.


The love story between Dakota and Sidney was a slow build up.  Sidney didn’t want anything to do with Dakota, but he was so persistent and persuasive that she realized that she really did like him.  I love how Robyn Carr’s characters are ordinary in a very everyday way. The characters are all people who you would like to be friends with.  I was glad that we were able to catch up with Maggie and Cal with Sully as well as Sierra and Connie.


Families coming together after a difficult childhood and learning the bonds are stronger and more emotionally strong was certainly one of the main themes from Robyn Carr.  The Family Gathering was a great read.

At first I thought it said spa season. Either way it is a sign of rejuvenation! On a Kristin Hannah kick, loved Winter Garden. Happy reading!

Cities are fun but exhausting. Like you the quiet is needed.

August snow days! What a fantastic idea! I've been reading Martin Walker's Bruno series set in rural France full or recipes. Yum
