Okay, my heart can plummet from my throat back into my chest. "Long Time Gone" by Mary Connealy may have taken awhile to resolve the problems faced by the Boden family, but it kept this reader hog-tied throughout . . . and wanting a sequel. Seems as if there's at least one string left to be tied off with something stronger than a slip knot. Must check out other books by Mary Connealy.
