In the fourth and final installment, Maggie and Caleb must tie up all the loose ends of their lives and make a way to be together completely on their own. With everything that happened with Bish and Maggie’s father, she’s almost reluctant to move on and move out. And now she must figure out all of this…stuff…with Haddock. But of course, nothing can stay simple for the Jacobsons. Enemies who were thought to be dissolved have decided to not go down so easily. And old flames come calling for more than just Maggie. Caleb is torn between leading his family and personal wants. Maggie is torn between Caleb and being the leader of their people. But neither will let what they need most to be pushed to the wayside. They are determined to make it all work, design a plan toward destiny, and make everything right again for themselves and their family.
And then there’s a wedding…
A great final installment to a great series. Maggie has to continue to endure so many obstacles while trying to move on with her life. Being still a teenager, she deals with so many things that are beyond her years. But, she handles them with strength and Caleb. Ah, Caleb! What a perfect match! I thought the book was great and tied up several loose ends.
I am a fan of the Significance Series from Shelly Crane, but not many of her other books. I actually wrote a review a while ago about the Collide series irritating me because of so many different character views throughout, that it ended up confusing me as to who was saying what. Independence is written a little different from the other Significance novels in that it has both Maggie and Caleb’s POVs. That was perfectly fine, since it was obvious who was narrating at the different times.
You are constantly aching for Maggie and Caleb to be able to move past the horrible obstacles placed in front of them. There was suspense and it was written well.
I would highly recommend reading this series. I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
