The Gallagher of Morning Star Boxed Set.
I fell in love with the Gallagher with the Sweetgrass Springs stories. Jean Brashear's Morning Star Gallagher's are even better. All three draw you in and keep you spellbound until the end. Each character is well drawn and relatable. The scenery makes me want to live in Texas. I want to right the wrongs that have affected each character, but it's already done! Thank you for these magical books.
