I was looking for new book to read when I picked up the first book in this series. I found the first book to be very boring, but I kept reading the consecutive books until this last one. These books frustrated me. Being a mother myself, I could not stand to see how Ingeborg disciplined her youngest son. They found it funny when he hit his brother. And then his brother got in trouble. They found it funny when the little boy whined. I'm sorry, but this kind of child raising brings up spoiled brats. You know there is a problem when the reader is giving the characters advise on how to raise their children. My advise: Don't even start reading the series.
