    This was so awesome on so many levels. I've always loved returning to Christy's world. Seeing her struggle as a young mom just brings her even more to life than she was already. The ending was perfect. I cried happy tears when finishing it.

    This book was amazing. One of my top favourite Christy Miller books!! What happens with Aunt Marti is amazing. This is a must read for all those Christy Miller fans! I got this for my birthday, yesterday actually and I’m so happy to have it on my shelf!

  • Maddy

    Well this was lovely. <3 It was a perfect way to end the series with Marti and David. I can’t believe these books are finally over. I absolutely fell in love with this series and I definitely recommend it!

    Oh what a soothing balm this book was to my soul. A truth filled book about the ups and downs of married life and motherhood. Washing away all insecurities and fears that life throws at you and making you feel renewed, refreshed and ready to take on life. I needed this book in more ways than I can say.

    I have been reading the Christy Miller series since I was in high school and to read this final book in her story is both a sweet blessing and a sad ending to an era. Robin Jones Gunn got to my heart with this one, ending the baby years series and what seems to be Christy’s story as a whole.

    I seriously loved it and can’t rave about it enough. I feel so refreshed after this novel knowing that what I am doing in life right now is ENOUGH. I do not need to stress. I do not need to worry. I need to just be. I need to take in each moment, count my blessings and be thankful for every day, no matter how mundane. Christy and Todd taught me that through each and every book.

    Robin, thank you for writing this wonderful, heart-filling series!

    The Negative first: The plot was not really packed and there were some typos and incorrect moments. (What I mean by that is that Christy had gotten rid of an item in another book, but it appeared somehow in this one.)

    I give this book 4 stars because it is a Christy Miller book, and that character is really dear to me. It's always fun to catch up with her and her friends. This story was well-written and encouraging to my spirit. I currently am at a point in my life where I miss the past and feel

    I give this book 4 stars because it is a Christy Miller book, and that character is really dear to me. It's always fun to catch up with her and her friends. This story was well-written and encouraging to my spirit. I currently am at a point in my life where I miss the past and feel constrained where I am. However, reading this book has helped me realize that I must be grateful for where I am.

    I hope Robin keeps writing about these characters, although I hope she adds a little more plot to her stories.

    I’m sorry, but I just have to be blunt: this was the most pointless of all Christy books, A Whisper and A Wish included. Nothing happens - at least not to the main characters anyway. That said, I’ve waited for that ending for fourteen years, so... 🤷🏻♀

    It also seems like a fitting way to finish the whole story, as much as I would love to read a Glenbrooke standalone about Tracy and a whole married years series about Katie and Eli. Maybe it really is time to say goodbye to the Forever Friends.

    It was bitter-sweet opening up this final entry in Christy Miller's story.

    I've been reading this series since I was fourteen, the same age as Christy herself in the first book...so long ago. In a sense, I grew up alongside her, devouring each new book as I was immersed in her world. I loved spending time at Newport Beach with her each summer...

    But as I have gotten older, Christy and I have grown distant. These books will always hold a special place on my shelf, but I no longer find myself invest

    I've been reading this series since I was fourteen, the same age as Christy herself in the first book...so long ago. In a sense, I grew up alongside her, devouring each new book as I was immersed in her world. I loved spending time at Newport Beach with her each summer...

    But as I have gotten older, Christy and I have grown distant. These books will always hold a special place on my shelf, but I no longer find myself invested in the shenanigans happening in the Spencer household. Partly this is due to the drama stemming from their young family and I #cantrelate. Never thought I would be saying this, but I miss the high school angst and college antics. This series falls flat for me when it's just Christy worried about not having enough groceries (an actual element of this novel). There doesn't seem to be any huge stakes to the stories being told now.

    This particular novel has some significant and lovely moments that I'm very happy have made it into the last book. However, as a whole, it read quite slow and uneventful. I kept waiting for something "big" to happen, something to drive the story forward, but that desire was never satisfied. So it was with a disappointed sigh that I turned the last page. I found it a home alongside the rest of them on my shelf. Though not a great book, it remains a great series.

    Oh Christy, you are such drama queen. I'll miss you.

    It saddens me to have to give this book a three star rating.

    I grew up with my home girl Christy. I love her embarrassing moments, her meltdowns, her thought process, I really connected with her because she felt very much like me!

These baby year books have fallen away from the rest of the series. This book especially falls flat, I kept waiting for something big to happen, but nothing happened. I missed Christy's "Christyness" Christy is not the same without Katie. The book picked up interest for me only when Katie came on scene, which was not very often. I wanted to love this last book in the series but I couldn't. 😭 Props to Robin though, it was a well written book, and I'm so glad about the thing that happened to Aunt Marti happened! (trying not to give spoilers lol) I'm still a huge fan of Robin, and I think I shall revisit the first Christy book ❤️

    This is a very depressing, accurate picture of motherhood lived with conservative Christian values.

    Christy is essentially a single mom raising 2 young kids, including a two-month-old. Her husband Todd works full time and has a lot of hobbies and activities, often getting home at 10pm, because he's a man and gets to do whatever he wants while being applauded for minimal parenting effort. Meanwhile, thanks to conservative gender roles straight out of the '50s, Christy is expected to do most (if no

    This is a very depressing, accurate picture of motherhood lived with conservative Christian values.

    Christy is essentially a single mom raising 2 young kids, including a two-month-old. Her husband Todd works full time and has a lot of hobbies and activities, often getting home at 10pm, because he's a man and gets to do whatever he wants while being applauded for minimal parenting effort. Meanwhile, thanks to conservative gender roles straight out of the '50s, Christy is expected to do most (if not all) of the childcare, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, and laundry--even mentally berating herself when Todd's best shirt isn't clean and ironed. He jets off to Africa for three weeks, and meanwhile Christy and one of her kids get really sick, but she's afraid to tell Todd because it might ruin his trip (!). She has basically no friends (one neighbor friend), no career, no hobbies, and doesn't get to pursue any passions, other than sewing pillows once in a while (also straight outta the '50s). Interestingly, the book addresses this: Christy is like "Why did I even go to college?" Good question, girlfriend. Christy's hospitality and natural gift for being a hostess and making people feel at home is repeatedly mentioned in this series, yet she never gets to pursue it, because Todd comes first. Christy hasn't even had a haircut in years. With Todd essentially out of the picture, Christy's nearby mom picks up the slack--something lots of new moms don't get to benefit from. Once in a while, Todd will do something nice or thoughtful, but he pretty much gets to swoop in sporadically, play with his kids, and then go surfing--yet he's held up as this Godly leader dude. (Unrelated but similarly depressing: bridal showers that incorporate anything sexy are condemned, and "good" Christians never drink. Yikes.)

    I really hoped this book would have Christy and Todd reevaluating their roles and coming to a more fair compromise--like that Todd agrees to scale back his after-work activities since he has a newborn, or Todd decides not to abandon his wife with their young kids while he's in Africa, or Todd agrees to work 30 hours a week so Christy can avoid going insane. Nope. Christy is rewarded by Todd merely acknowledging how hard it is for her and sometimes having sex with her. A normal person would resent Todd and insist he quit acting like a carefree college kid, grow up, and equally share the housework and childcare--but then again these aren't normal people; they're bound up like mummies by conservative Christianity. Again, yikes.

    I've been reading Robin Jones Gunn books since I was little and mostly love them (despite her conservative approach to Christianity). Not this one. Books like this one unintentionally reinforce how damaging it is to cling to outdated gender roles under the guise of Jesus. I know some Christians are liberal (and even, gasp, feminist!) and may adopt a more equal approach to parenting--but this book did not and was honestly horrifying as a result.
