This is the third book in the Trilogy and follows Mark, the youngest member of the cast of characters.  He is working full time at Clay and Dell’s farm, while still trying to work on his strained relationship with his father.  When Clay and Dell hire Isaac to help out with the goats, Mark and Isaac are almost immediately taken with each other.  It would be so simple if only they didn’t come from different worlds.  All the “helpful” advice from others just muddies the water.  

 

This fish out of water story is very sweet and low angst.  The most tension comes from Isaac and his interactions with his father.  I really wanted more of the relationship between Mark and Isaac.  The transition of Isaac from a member of a secluded community to a full fledged member of the outside world seemed to happen very quickly.  I would have loved to see more of that process on the page.

 

My favorite part of the book is the character of Archie.  That kid is hilarious and brings together the cast and the plot in unexpected ways.  He is enamored of all things poop related and is motivated by cake.  Overall it is a sweet story of finding love and finding your family.
