This was a huge series that put you right into the center of a family almost as if you were one of the 12 children. The story is told by 2 of the sisters who are the youngest girls. There are so many life changing moments that happen to both girls as you follow them into womanhood. I know I missed them when I finished the books. You’ll encounter lots of surprises, some good and some not! I highly recommend Iris and Lily.
