I have read many stories having to do with the dust bowl years, but never one which touched me as much as Spring's gentle promise. Perhaps because the previous books had brought me so much into the lives of the characters, I felt almost like I was living through that time, dreading that they might lose the farm, wondering if they would make it through. My grandfather worked in the government programs of the 30's, and this made me wonder about his experience too. I really liked this book. The epilogue brought tears to my eyes. I recommend the whole series.
