Separated by an inconceivable tragedy, can faith and love reunite childhood friends and light the way to a bright future?
In a quiet corner of northern Edwardian England, Margaret Lounsbury diligently works in her grandmother’s millinery shop, making hats and caring for her young sister. Several years earlier, a terrible event reshaped their family, shattering an idyllic life and their future prospects. Maggie is resilient and will do what she must to protect her sister Violet. Still, the loss of her parents weighs heavily on her heart because she wonders if what happened that day on the lake…might not have been an accident.
When wealthy inventor and industrialist William Harcourt dies, his son and Maggie’s estranged childhood friend, Nathaniel returns from his time in the Royal Navy and inherits his father’s vast estate, Morningside Manor. He also assumes partial control of his father’s engineering company and the duty of repaying an old debt to the Lounsbury family. But years of separation between Nate and Maggie have taken a toll and Maggie struggles to trust her old friend.
Can Maggie let go of the resentment that keeps her from forgiving Nate–and reconciling with God? Will the search for the truth about her parents’ death draw the two friends closer or leave them both with broken hearts?
~My Book Review~
Well,well,well I haven’t enjoyed a book so much for a very long time. This was a heart wrenching and moving story to read. It was a bundle of life,romance,and adventure rolled up into one.
To me the writing itself flowed and had a wonderful way of capturing my undivided attention.
I must say that when I saw the book cover I was blown away. I do have a weak spot for beautiful book covers. It’s beautiful!
Both main characters pulled at my heart-strings for sure and I thought that their characters were very well thought out.
If you love Downton Abbey and that period, then you’ll definitely love reading this novel.
I highly recommend this book! I was drawn to read it into the wee hours of the morning. This is probably one of the best books I’ve read so far for this year. Awesome!
