Dakota Jones is the second youngest of four children who had a difficult upbringing living with parents who struggle with mental illness. He escaped his family as soon as he could by joining the military. Now, after several tours of duty he has been discharged. He has nowhere to go and no solid plans for the future. Refusing to return home to his parents he arrives in Sullivan's Crossing where his brother Cal and sister Sierra have each experienced the healing power of the place and its people. Nestled at the crossroads of the Colorado and Continental Divide Trails, the area attracts those looking for answers or direction or a new lease on life. Dakota will come to terms with his less-than-perfect family and will plant the roots he's never had.
Having left the military, Dakota Jones is at a crossroads in his life. With his elder brother and youngest sister happily settled in Sullivan's Crossing, he shows up hoping to clear his head before moving on to his next adventure. As a newcomer, he is on the radar of all the single women in town. While he enjoys the attention at first, he's really only attracted to the one woman who isn't interested. When all the Jones siblings gather for a family wedding, they struggle to accept each other, warts and all, and the true nature and strength of their bond is tested.

I tend not to read 'saga' stories, but I think these Sullivan's Crossing books are wonderful. They remind me very much of the Clifton Chronicles by Jeffrey Archer.

'The Family Gathering' introduces us to 2 more siblings that come from a confused family background. All four deal with that in their own way and it catches up with all of them. Luckily they have a haven in Sullivan's Crossing.

You will enjoy all three of these tenderly written books.

5 stars, A- for some (a bit too much) abrupt subject/mood change conversations that drive me crazy when authors do it.

Loved this story. It's also nice to read about people I've read about in prior books.

There is use of the F word sporadically throughout, for those who may not want cursing in the books they read.
