I agree this isn't as good as Gap Creek. I started reading, lost interest, put it down, then tried again. I didn't finish the book, but Gap Creek I couldn't put down.

Not quite as good as Gap Creek. This one takes awhile to catch your attention. But it is still a good investment if you want to know what happens to the characters from Gap Creek.
