From the very first pages I felt very attached to the characters and it’s definitely a sign of very good writing. Penny’s story was so touching and heartbreaking, but I admired her willpower not to give up on her search of her birthmother no matter what. Will and Laurel were my favorites since their first meeting, and in spite of all the circumstances I couldn’t help but root for their future.
I also appreciated how the town people were portrayed, and how the “pious” ones turned out to be the most unforgiving and cruel in their judgements, and the “outcasts” – Laurel is the most obvious example – displayed the biggest heart and sympathy even towards the ones who snubbed them.
Highly recommended for all lovers of historical fiction!
The story is perfect for the time frame,, the setting was described wonderfully, but my favorite part---the characters! To me, they totally make a story worthwhile. From the good, to the bad, and even to the romantic love interest, this book was sensational. I'm happy I stumbled across it on Amazon!! I don't want to give away plot details, but I recommend checking this out!
Well-written, too; not only was the writing in keeping with the times but was also had a poetic feel - some beautiful descriptions. Yes, some of the dialogue slowed the reading, however, it couldn't have been done any other way...definitely gave the story authenticity.
It certainly is a tale full of meaning, and sentimental but not sickly so.
Something different and worthwhile.
Easy, enjoyable reading from start to finish.
Will Barton arrives back from Paris to take over his sister's printing press. Elizabeth is a cantankerous, unhappy woman and mother to two daughters; one a foundling. Her husband- Ulysses is a larger than life constant drinker and ne'er do well with a heart of gold.
A wonderful portrayal of life in a close knit community during the early 1900's filled with quirky characters, intrigue and most of all the love story between Will (the grandfather) and Laurel, the beautiful and enigmatic seamstress. Lovely read
