Heartwood by Belva Plain

I discovered Belva Plain as an author back in the early 80’s I believe, and read everything she ever wrote.  She is on my personal “Favorite Author List” which includes fantastic writers such as Rosamunde Pilcher and Maeve Binchy.   This, her final novel, was bittersweet. She must have known she was nearing the end of her life as she wrote this book as a wrap up to her first (and finest, in my humble opinion) novel, “Evergreen”. The book was set in the 1970’s and early 80’s and was a very easy and quick read involving Iris (daughter of Anna in “Evergreen”) and her daughter, Laura. It was about love, and life, and family – all things that Belva Plain was known for in her novels. It wasn’t exactly riveting, but still, it’s a MUST READ for all of Belva Plain’s fans, like myself.  She died last year, and will certainly be missed my many.
