FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Let me start off by saying this is not the first book by John Heldt that I have read, and I hope it's not the last. Each book I read by him is a new magical experience wrapped around time travel and family. This book follows Claire and Ron as they search to find an adoptive child. After many miscarriages, adoption is the next best option to fulfilling their dreams of a family. This search leads them on an amazing journey back in time to 1945, when adoptions were not full of waiting and red tape and the costs were little. Along with Claire's brother David, this trio finds themselves in a time of war. They find themselves faced with many trials, but through them all, they as a family make it through.
This book was a very good book. It was one of the best I have read so far from this author. It was filled with very likable characters some new, some I have read about before. This story was filled with pain and hope, family and time travel. Each book is a good mix of past and present and each book is filled with a story that is hard to put down. Once again I am a huge fan of this author. Each book I read just boosts my love for history and reading. Great book all around.
