Rosie and Abigail are like family, Ina Merriweather used to say. That is, until the day Ina cast out her housekeeper, Rosie, and her fifteen-year-old daughter Abigail. Abigail felt deeply betrayed, especially by Ina’s daughter Lila, who was her closest friend. Now, twenty-five years later, an old score is about to be settled, and an old love rekindled. Abigail is now a self-made woman who has built an empire out of the homemaking skills she learned from her mother. When Lila, who married well and for decades lived the glittering life of a Park Avenue socialite, suffers a tragic reversal of fortune, she seeks the help of her childhood friend, but learns that the only opening available at the moment is as Abigail’s housekeeper. At the same time, Abigail is coping with the fallout from a fire in her Mexico factory, which took the life of an innocent girl, whose mother, Concepción Morales, now seeks the rich señora she holds responsible for her daughter’s death. Abigail, Lila, and Concepción are thrown together and must unite to save one another … and themselves. Download and start listening now!

    " While I loved Eileen Goudge's earlier books her newer ones are not that intriguing. This book was basically boring and very predictable. A housekeeper and her daughter are forced to leave the household they worked in by the acholic mistress of the home who accuses her house keeper of stealing her necklace. The daughter who is very close to the twins of the family are very disappointed when they don't come to her rescue. Tables turn when they are adults; the house keepers daughter becomes a famous chef, while her childhood friend marries well but looses it all when her husband commits suicide. She becomes the housekeeper to her best friend.....the book goes down from there. "

    " I had such high hopes for this book. I usually enjoy reading Eileen Goudge. What a snoozer this one was, I can't even believe I read the whole thing. "
