New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels inspires and entertains with a touching tale of the transforming power of love -- and a woman whose broken heart finds room for the simple pleasures of family and home, and for discovering true love in the last place she expected.

Darby Lane and Russell Gunn had been inseparable friends from their early years in the Horseshoe, their wonderful Baton Rouge neighborhood, all the way through to graduate school dreams and beyond. Then the unthinkable happens: a tragic accident takes Russ's life, and Darby's world is shattered.

Her long journey to healing takes hold as Darby begins to see Russ's brother Ben through new eyes. Suddenly love blooms in the place of grief and Darby faces the challenge of reuniting Ben with his estranged father -- if they can get through the conniving schemes of Ben's social climber stepmother. Like the custom dollhouses Darby creates with tender care and patience, she begins to understand that loss can build new life -- and love truly can conquer anything.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 2/18/2014

    " This was a good romance with a little bit of mystery in it. I would recommend it for those who need a quick 'people'-oriented story. It was an easy but satisfying read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Delicious Strawberry | 2/15/2014

    " This is not the first Fern Michaels book I ever read - I had already read two others (One Sisterhood book, as well as Pretty Woman) but this was easily the worst of the three, and apparently from the other reviews, I'm not alone in thinking this. Some of the characters were funny, but there were several unrealistic perks and twists, as well as a very lackluster and sappy ending. Dodo and her son, for example. And I was disappointed that Bella got away with what she did and was able to sneak off. Overall a very, very disappointing book - whether you like Fern Michaels or not. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Noreen | 2/12/2014

    " Loved this book. Must be read by anyone with sisters-a great book about family ties and love despite differences and problems, plus a love story (or two) thrown in. I loved the three elderly sisters - my kind of people "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 2/7/2014

    " Not a huge fan of Fern Michaels writing styling as it can be a little dry in places, but this book surprised me. It was a pretty good read. However, reading about grown women named Ducky, Diddy, and Dodo was a little much. I really wished she called them their real names instead of those lame nicknames. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Baratta | 2/6/2014

    " Fern's a gifted story teller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/18/2014

    " It was pretty good. I mean it was predictable but romantic and silly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Novita Sari | 1/17/2014

    " romantic story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dana | 1/16/2014

    " Great book. Mystery and romance. All about friendship, trust, and family. Of course a little sad too. An all around drama! Suspensefull read it in a couple days could not put it down! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean | 1/16/2014

    " this was an okay book for me. It was a quick summer read, type book. Nothing exciting, in my opionion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 1/16/2014

    " I have no idea what the title has to do with this book. I guess I missed it. But I think it's supposed to be a love story. More then that, it's about 3 aunts who are hysterical. Didn't care for the very end, but the rest was a hoot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eny | 12/23/2013

    " Very good read, great story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cathy | 12/9/2013

    " Not a fan of this book. Typical southern personalities and very predictable pairing of characters "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Makitanasha | 12/4/2013

    " Good book!!!!!!!! Loved it from the first page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 11/30/2013

    " Another imaginative book by Fern Michaels. Some of her books are quite good and others move too slowly because she tries to be too detailed. This was a good little story that falls in the pretty good fairy tale vein and is quite amusing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsie | 10/4/2013

    " This was an easy read, and I think I just skimmed most of it....Ok, story, good not great. Nice way to spend a blustery afternoon! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abby Welker | 8/15/2013

    " This book was okay entertainment. It had some clever, funny parts. I wasn't completely engaged, however, and sometimes I rolled my eyes at the main character. Otherwise, it's a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marla | 6/14/2013

    " 2.5 stars. Not a bad book, just not very good...characters, premise, love story, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 4/28/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy Long | 3/31/2013

    " Loved this book. I could actually seeing this made into a movie. The 3 elderly sisters reminded me of the Baldwin sisters in Walton's Mountain plus one more. Their Southern Charm was interesting and the book kept me reading. "
