1895...Mackinac Island, Michigan...Maude Welling just cannot understand why her father is so adamant about her not managing Winds of Mackinac Inn without a husband. Well, she has to do something to prove to him she is capable of running it without a husband. Thus she comes up with a plan, albeit a risky one at best.
Journalist Ben Steffans—or rather Friedrich Konig—is on an undercover assignment as a wealthy industrialist staying at the infamous Grand Hotel pursing a story about impoverished men chasing women of financial means and heiresses—and maybe a promotion when finished...and finds himself intrigued by an attractive maid.
Circumstances and mishaps bring Ben and Maude together and they form a fragile, tender friendship. As Ben digs deeper into his story he uncovers scandals and secrets that could unravel the fragile love growing. A story filled with mystery and intrigue, joys and sorrows, love and faith. I love Maude and Ben...and Jack is a precious little boy full of energy! There are characters that I was not sure I would like at first but later in the story I changed my mind about them. The authors' description of the Island has me wanting to take a trip and visit and maybe stay for a long while. I would stay at the Winds of Mackinac Inn and maybe get Jack to slow down a bit and take me on a tour. Wonderful, heartwarming story.
Maude Welling, beloved relative of half of the residents of Mackinac Island, nevertheless loses the love of her sweetheart, Greyson, who chooses a wealthy heiress as his bride. Maude is devastated. Not only has she lost her best friend and fiancé, but she is not allowed to run father's inn without being married. Unwilling and unable to leave island, Maude has to devise a way to keep from losing her promised heritage.
Friedrich Konig, a wealthy German,is a summer visitor staying at the Grand Hotel. He piques Maude's interest but is secretive and manipulative.
Pride, greed, lost love,and manipulations abound. Can Maude and others choose to relinquish their own plans and trust in God's? Or will they perpetuate history and be victims of a vengeful, bitter woman long dead?
I loved the view of island life and seeing how the snooty rich lived on the backs of the poor laborers.
I did feel like some loose ends were not tied up, which made me question the ending. However, a sequel may be in the offing,and perhaps those questions will be addressed.
