    The third book in the series Lots of changes happening in this book Peter and Mae have a baby boy Virginia has a stroke and decides to give up on life Fred comes back with a wife And they all have to learn to trust God that everything will work out for the best.

    The third in a series of feel good family stories centered in Wisconsin farm country, Aprons on a Clothesline started out a little slow Just as my attention was waning, about a third of the way in the story picked up and grabbed hold About 2 3 s of the way through, I had the feeling I d read this before, though I couldn t find a previous book review.I think I did read this one about Virgina s stroke and slow, painful recovery A lot of other things were happening in the small farming town of Lake [...]

    The third book in the Lake Emily Series nThe focus of this story seems to be on Virginia although there was definitely a lot of information about the other characters as well Virginia has a stroke at the beginning of the book not a spoiler because the back of the book says she has one before you even read the first page Because of this, she struggles with her faith and who she is and her continued place in the world I could relate with her some and appreciate the character who came alongside he [...]

    WARNING SpoilerI felt the book started out well with the story of the lady who d always been the one to take care of everyone and everything and her loss of faith when she s no longer able to be that person There are back stories involving others in the small town dealing with changes, loss of faith, etc However, when this woman finds comfort in visits to a friend s unresponsive comatose mother in the nursing rehab home, it feels like it s building to a ta da moment with a reason for a person to [...]

    I didn t like this book nearly as much as the first two I had a hard time believing the character of Anna I don t think anyone is that stupid to spend that much time with someone Steve and Jessie and not think they were anything other than friends I found that to be the most ridiculous story line I don t think the author believes you can find true love after a spouse dies, because we have three widowed characters that the author doesn t allow to find love I was especially puzzled by Virgina seem [...]

    The third in a series of small town life in northern Minnesota, this one also chronicles successes and defeats Virginia, the grandma, has a health problem She has a stroke and discovers how much her life has changed She has to deal with changing her identity from the helper to the one who is being helped Meanwhile Peter is still trying to continue the relationship with his distant father Her stories sound like the ones I experienced from my grandma who lived in a small town Definitely not a bori [...]

    The story of Aprons On a Clothesline hits very close to home Without giving the plot away the major event that happens to Virginia Morgan affects not only her, but her family and friends as well This is a great, thought provoking story that made me realize what my mother was feeling as she went through the same event as Virginia.This was my first Christian fiction novel and I plan to put this genre on my long list of TBRs.

    I liked this book better than the second Product placement wasn t as overbearing and even though I thought the book was predictable, it wasn t I was relieved about that I feel that the stories of the Lake Emily characters are far from being told though

    Fabulous book about life in a midwestern town What are people s true feelings about family How badly can a stroke affect the schedule of a family Would you welcome back a prodigal son with unreal expectations Read this.

    Well, it wasn t really as intriguing a read as some other books I ve read Sorry The sisterhood and friendship between the women and the lessons learned through trials was good but the writing style didn t draw me in as much.

    I gave first 2 books in the series 3 stars, but this one wasn t quite as good I think some of the characters started getting on my nerves by the last book I felt like there were unanswered questions about some situations.

    This was the 3rd and final book The story was Virgina Morgan s stroke and recovery This one seemed like it went back and forth a lot between all the smaller characters.

    I loved this little series, I m only sad that there are only 3 books I love how it is about having faith and that trials only make you stronger.

    Actually a 4.5 A wonderful read, so sad that there are no Lake Emily books I love the characters the realistic situations of a farming community.

    I really couldn t get into this book It s one of the only books I ve given up on before reaching the end.

    I couldn t stop reading them I kept wanting to know what was going to happen in the lives of these characters I will continue to read this series if there are written Darn it

    I like these books They are not as pastoral as you might think when reading the flyleaf I enjoy this author and as you might imagine Jenn I plan to read all of her work

    It was a story about a Grandmother, Mother and Wife that ends up having a stroke and recapping her life Great story.

    The third book in the Lake Emily series Trudy and Mae are married and Mae finally has a baby I love the series and the kind and caring people in Lake Emily.
