Sweet and fairly predictable, this is a fast and easy read with better than average character development and plot. Kind of like a bowl of chicken noodle soup - you'll enjoy it, it'll fill you up, and you'll feel satisfied afterwards.

Good historical fiction and independent career woman who opens herself to new found family. Heartwarming.

I never received this book. My Kindle does not have Wi-Fi.

Fairly implausible story yet I got caught up in it quickly. It was obvious to me that Tess needed to make changes in her life but I didn't expect the things that did happen. That characters from different places and times all somehow fit together during this story -- that stretched believability too. But I liked the characters, and the story, and was rooting for positive endings for everyone. So the story did work for me, in the end.

Very good. Lots of history and unforeseen twists and turns, as well as some romance. A book that leaves the reader with hope.
