A New Day at Tanglewood

by Annette Smith

Moody Publishers

No day goes by in Ruby Prairie, Texas that passes without incident. If it isn't the twins up to something, it's the other four girls that seemingly team up to wear Charlotte out. But Treasure is moving in to Tanglewood, and thank goodness. There is always more than enough work to go around at this home for girls, and Charlotte Carter could never go it alone.

Charlotte's fifteen-year-old, Beth, is recovering from her escapades and misadventures with her boyfriend Kirby. But a new challenge lies on the horizon for all the residents of Tanglewood, and for all of Ruby Prairie. Will they all be able to cope with what the news will bring? Or will Charlotte loose the thing she loves the most - one of her precious girls?

The second book in the Coming Home to Ruby Prairie series was a wonderful read with all the humor, adventure, love and faith that Smith gave us in the first book. It's the kind of book you look forward to opening at the end of a long day with a tall glass of lemonade or iced tea.

This is the kind of story that reminds you that there are still little towns, with good people, left in the world. Where you can feel safe and loved, where you can be part of something bigger than yourself, a community. And all I can say is get these books. You won't regret it, and I promise you; the characters will not only grow in you but inspire your faith, and you will never forget them.
