Joan Kilby has written
one of the best love stories I have ever read. Her flawless research
breathed real life into her well thought out characters. Books like
these only come around once in a blue moon. They are to be savored,
enjoyed, and long remembered. Family Matters is a perfect
"10" in my book, it has earned a definite keeper spot
in my growing library. Very highly recommended.
