Could the key to Casey’s future be hidden in someone else’s past?
Casey Adams unexpectedly inherits an old Victorian house full of other people’s memories. Stuck in a quirky little Mississippi town, Casey’s hope for a fresh start died as soon she had to lay the grandmother she’d just met to rest.
But Grandma Ida carried secrets beyond the grave.
Before her death Ida carefully planned a trail of clues to help Casey unlock the Macintyre family secrets and finally explain why they abandoned her. But each of Ida’s letters will only come from Casey’s handsome—and often frustrating—new neighbor. As Casey pieces together the stories behind the objects filling her grandmother’s house, she embarks on a heart-stirring journey that rattles her foundations, ignites her faith, and leads her to a startling discovery that will reshape her future. But only if she can face the lies that have been slowly tearing her apart.
my point of view:
Such a lovely story of a woman searching to belong… I especially enjoyed the glimpses into the past as Casey made her way through all the “steps” her grandmother left behind for her.
I was blessed to get a copy of this amazing story and enjoyed every moment of it! I just knew this was my type of story, from the Victorian era home I have always dreamed of having, to a true ancestry going back for many years! Stephenia always does an an amazing job of story telling in all her historical novels, I was so excited to get to be an early reader for this new contemporary!
Now I want to learn to quilt, lol! But, seriously, a truly amazing novel of finding yourself while looking into the past! I loved it!
