I really enjoyed this book. It includes moments of humor and sadness, romance and intrigue, drama and adventure. I loved the dual timeline and the flow between the two time periods was handled well. The mystery that threads itself through the pages will keep you invested. You will probably figure out…or have an idea…of the resolution to the mystery. But that doesn’t take away from the pleasure of the book.
The author does a wonderful job of developing the characters and she does an amazing job of dealing with the aspect of how women were treated in the 40’s. This is a touching story that will have you sitting back and sighing once you’ve read the last word and closed the book.
Thank you to NetGalley and Montlake Publishers for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own. I look forward to reading more books by Mary Ellen Taylor.
