'A gorgeous story of family and secrets and the redemptive power of
love.' Kate Morton, bestselling author of The Distant Hours
and The Forgotten Garden
"The novel's strength instead lies in Freeman's complex characters--capable of love and hate, shame and redemption. Both Beattie and Emma find themselves having to start over, and it is for these two women that readers cheer and sympathize." -Publishers Weekly
By the last satisfying scene, you may find yourself reluctantly parting with old friends who will live on once the cover has closed. Highly recommended." -Historical Novels Review
