Beyond the Carousel (Wyattsville, #5)Beyond the Carousel by Bette Lee Crosby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life was like a carousel. If you offer the world good and fair measure, it will in time come back to you. What goes around, comes around.

The Wilkes family lived by the mantra of the carousel. They worked hard and family mattered. Good fortune started with Emory Wilkes when he received a letter of inheritance. His family lived frugally and having money became a blessing. It was put to good use as his family grew. Emory’s relationship with his wife and daughter was a relationship that he cherished. When his daughter Laura fell in love and married, tragedy was just around the corner.

The story line reflects family ties and family tragedy. I loved how the beginning was a build up to the tragedy that struck Emory’s family and how they came together to live through the tragedy that deeply affected each member. Twenty-five years later, Laura’s daughter brings the tragedy full circle where memories are made at the Carousel.

A clean read that is high on family commitment and how love overcomes any tragedy.

A Special Thank You to Bent Pine Publishing and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
