The discovery of a long-lost love letter in a house she’s redecorating sends Rosalie Stanton on a quest to find its rightful owner.
Since his return from the Great War, William Cavendish has lived as a recluse. His peaceful existence is shattered by the return of the letter that once held all his hopes — and by its bearer, the irrepressible Rosalie, who bears an uncanny resemblance to his lost love.
As Rosalie sets out to lure William back into society, she realises that in him she might just have met her match.
Review: Right away you pretty much like Rosalie and her spunky tenacity. Her mother long dead and her father too wrapped up in his writing, Rosalie takes over renovating their newest home and finds a letter to someone who hadn’t opened it, probably because it had fallen behind the mantle. She embarks on a rather quick journey to find the writer and is captivatingly determined to find out what his story is once she finds him.
Rosalie likes fixing things – and people. William doesn’t want to be fixed, but he really doesn’t have much say. He underestimates her one time too many, but is soon just as captivated by her as she is with him.
There are several turns this book could have taken, but I like where it went. I’d love to see a few follow-ups, learn about some of the other characters mentioned as their stories are just begging to be written, and I’d be more than happy to read them!
