I, too wish the books were numbered. And that you would have some idea when the next book is going to be released. I have decided that I am going to go back and read all the series again. Being one who always has a book going, I have a hard time keeping all the series straight. So, to the start of 2007 and the Cape Light Series, lets get started

OK, but you really should read the whole series, they are really good. Oliver and Lillian: In the book you read Oliver makes a comment about not being sure he is able to run the business that his brother was supposed to inherit. He was right. The canneries started to lose money in the late 60's. Oliver took out large loans to keep the businesses going. When that didn't work he dipped into the retirement funds of the employees, gambled with it to try to win enough to keep the businesses going and pay back the fund. He lost all the money and was tried for embezzlement. Didn't go to jail but lost everything. He died about a year later from a bad (or broken) heart. Lillian paid off most of the debt by selling off many family treasures including Lilac Hall which was sold to the City as a historical site and was turned into a museum. She was put on the board of directors for the museum, I assume from that she was paid an income and was able to purchase a nice home in Cape Side. Any other questions?

Without having to read the Cape Light book, can somebody please sum up for me the downfall of Oliver and Lillian. I just read A Christmas To Remember, but the ending bothered me because I found out nothing about what happened after Lillian and Oliver married. PLEASE FILL ME IN!!

Brenda, you need to go back to the beginning of the series. Cape Light sheds a little more light on what happened between Lillian and Oliver. You also get the beginning of the stories of Sam and Jessica, Emily and Dan, and Sara and Luke.

The order is: Cape Light, Home Song, A Gathering Place, A New Leaf, A Christmas Promise, The Christmas Angel, and A Christmas to Remember.
There seem to be gaps because the three Christmas books are in succession and each represents three consecutive years. I was disappointed to find out that somewhere between Christmas Angel and Christmas to remember, Molly and Matt got married. I would have loved a story on that.

I have only read a Christas to Remember so I cannot help you. Wish I could.

I love the stories. Hope there will be more. Two questions. Why was Carl Tulley's name (New Leaf)changed to Joe in The Christmas Angel? How many Morgan siblings are there? One book said 8 (Cape Light), another said 5 (A New Leaf).

I felt so disappointed at the end of this book that I wanted to cry. Will I ever know or are there more books that I should be reading? I want to know what happened in Lillian's life wih Oliver. There are hints but nothing firm. What a disappointment.

I like a lot of your work, however I would like know why it is that for people that have little or no money or are living from paycheck to paycheck, there are no websites that we can visit and get to see your artwork that is either not in a frame or doesn't cost something to view. I'm all for capitalism but when I can't even give my 4 year old a good view of fine art it seems that people forget that not everyone is made of money.
