I was so disappointed by this book. I have loved the Oak Knoll series, but this one tanked. There was hardly any character development. It felt like 60% of the book was internal conversations the main character is having with herself- it got to the point that I was so sick of listening to her I fast-forwarded a lot of it. While I cannot imagine what it would be like to loose a child, I did not feel sympathy for the main character because of her obvious lack of care for her remaining daughter. It was frustrating that in the end, she never even grasped how poor her parenting had been. I was also super frustrated that you didn't get to see any of the old characters (Vince, Anne, Franny) very much if at all. There have been SO many unanswered questions in these books, and I was really hoping they would all come together finally, but they didn't. I honestly didn't really feel like this book connected very well to the others. There was no comic relief in this book, and the tone was much darker than the previous two. And lastly, the romantic interest of Tony was SO far beneath him it was disgusting. This whole time, you've been waiting for him to end up with someone he can love and protect who deserves him too. Hoag's choice for him was just pathetic.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kirsten Potter’s performances?
Do you think Down the Darkest Road needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, I would like to hear more about these characters. I feel like this book was barley connected to the first two.
Any additional comments?
This is my least favorite book in the series, I do not feel that it follows the original characters enough.
