My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ok so I’m reading slightly out of order again, but the last two books in the Landry series don’t follow Ruby’s storyline. This one follows Gabriel, her mother, the other one follows Pearl, her daughter.
Actually, I’m quite glad that the author chose to do a prequel book later, rather than sooner, because it gives the story more interest. Gabriel’s story really isn’t that interesting, but it is a bit more so because we already know about her daughter’s story. Hints about Gabriel’s upbringing are in the first three books so it’s nice to have things come full circle.
However, it’s not a need to read book. You can still enjoy Ruby’s journey without this one. However it does fill in the gaps about Gabriel’s life and the life Grandmere Catherine and Grandpere Jack had before Ruby came along.
All in all it’s a nice addition to the series.
