Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up attending private schools and afternoon teas, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was only five years old, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce became an outsider—until she met Edilean Harcourt. Although she was sixty years Joce’s senior, Miss Edi was a kindred soul who understood her like no one else ever had.

When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941. In the letter, Miss Edi also mentions that she has found the perfect man for Joce—a handsome young lawyer. Joce is shocked to learn that the mystery, the house, and the future love of her life are all in Edilean, a small town in Virginia that Miss Edi never told her about. Hurt that the woman who meant so much to her kept so many secrets, Jocelyn moves to this tight-knit village in an attempt to understand the legacy that has been left to her. As she begins to dig into Miss Edi’s mystery, she discovers some shocking surprises about her family’s history and her own future—and she meets a man with his own mysterious past.

    " An excellent read. I was crying at the end. I also had some laughs about Bertrand, and his lazy stories XD "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 5/10/2011

    " This book so far is really good and reminds me of a Cinderella-esque novel, which I love! Romance, mystery, and more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shannon | 5/5/2011

    " The best part of this book was the story of Edilean. The rest felt contrived, and the characters were inconsistent and stereotyped. There was also something about the writing that didn't flow for me as it usually does. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flora | 4/9/2011

    " This was an okay book- it got better the more I got into it. It wasn't very creative and I get the feeling the author cranks out books to a certain, predictable formula. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Delores | 4/6/2011

    " This was a light, predictable story you don't have to think much about. If you are looking for that, you will not be disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 3/25/2011

    " Pretty good....but I figured out the plot "twist" way before the ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 3/16/2011

    " Very cute and very fun to read. I felt like I was reading a Lifetime movie. I enjoy these books for some "no thought", just fun, books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 3/7/2011

    " This is my first Deveraux book, and I enjoyed it. I'd say I was probably about 100 pages in before the story line picked up for me, by the end I didn't want to put it down so I could find out what happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 3/7/2011

    " Fairly predictable but a nice fast read. "
