Did you ever read one of those books in which the characters are so well written that you are torn between racing through the book to see what happens and taking your time because once it's finished you have to say goodbye? Greatly Beloved is such a book. I quickly fell in love with Mercy and Daniel and wanted to know their story. Margo Hansen did a wonderful job of crafting the story, her setting was good and I really enjoyed the plot twists. I loved Ms. Hansen's Newly Wed series and can see that I will equally enjoy her Tall Timber Trilogy. I always add Margo Hansen's books to my keeper shelf.
