I started reading the Skye O'Malley series back in early series. I have all her O'Malley books up but excluding her newest book that was just published. All her Skye books were great up to her book Wild Jasmine,after that I only bought the books to keep up with the series. When I read Darling Jasmine I could not believe her to be the same woman that she portrayed in a Love for all Time. She forgot all of her own children,grandchildren and focused on one Jasmine. I wanted to here about her other grandchildren,but I guessed that if she had done that the series would never have been completed. This book and her earlier ones are my favorites in this series. I hope that in her next book that she writes about Fortune and her family and how Skye's family did in the new colonies. But I'm rambling now, but I just wanted to say that I have had this book since it came out in the eighties and I still have the book ,creased but in good shape and I still read it.
