Keep Holding On

Keep Holding On is the latest entry to Melissa Tagg's Walker Family series.  While this book was not as easy to read as the earlier tales were, it is definitely worth the time to learn where Kit Danby and Beckett Walker find themselves at the end of this tale!

After several years away in the high paced world of London, England, Kit Danby has recently returned to her hometown of Maple Valley, Iowa, to check in with her family.  When she sees the state of her family's apple orchard, she knows she needs to roll up her sleeves and get to work.  Kit's father agrees to let her take charge of the orchard, if she is able to turn it around.  Life gets complicated for Kit when her childhood friend, Beckett Walker, suddenly shows up in town as well.  Beckett has taken a break from his work, as an attorney in Boston, to clear up a misunderstanding from his past in Maple Valley; unfortunately, the penalty for this indiscretion turns into hours of community service for Beckett to fulfill!

About 100 pages from the end of this book, I experienced a "Karen Kingsbury" moment, when Melissa Tagg's words actually brought tears to my eyes.  After God finally gets a hold of their hearts, it is interesting to see where Kit and Beckett finally land!
