A story that crosses three generations.
Review by JoAnne: This is a novel with family at its center and was a very enjoyable and easy book to get into. The McCloud family makes up the main characters with the Frasers coming in right behind as secondary characters. The story crosses three generations of The McClouds with lots of twists and turns. There is romance, lots of angst, anxiety, problems, secrets and mystery that have to be dealt with along with a few laughs and some tears. Their family home was once a place that unmarried girls could come to have their babies and not be disgraced. Now it's a bed and breakfast with its own stories to tell. There is unrequited love for Jill McCloud and Keith Fraser and it takes them until the end of the story to admit they still love each other and want to be together. Of course getting to that point was not a straight line and we learned of their history throughout the book. She gave background story initially and then went back and forth between the past and the present to give further details that readers needed to piece the story together. This helped to enrich the story for the readers by layering the details and specifics of the plot. This is the first adult novel written by Delsol although she had previously authored two books for youth. I would definitely read other adult books she writes and hope they are as good as this one!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Favorite Quote: "He patted the spot on the couch next to him. Jill took a deep breath and shuffled across the room. Had he really come to find her? Had he really held her and said he loved her? She eased herself onto the sofa. He pulled her hand into his lap. The cotton of his faded Levi's was warm and smooth."
