"Focused on a career in medicine and not on romance, Willa Duvall is thrown slightly off course during the summer of 1865 when she discovers a never-opened love letter in a crack of her old writing desk. Compelled to find the passionate soul who penned it and the person who never received it, she takes a job as a nurse at the seaside estate of Crestwicke Manor.Everyone at Crestwicke has feelings--mostly negative ones--about the man who wrote the letter, but he seems to have disappeared. With plenty of enticing clues but few answers, Willa's search becomes even more complicated when she misplaces the letter and it passes from person to person in the house, each finding a thrilling or disheartening message in its words.
Laced with mysteries large and small, this romantic Victorian-era tale of love lost, love deferred, and love found is sure to delight."
This book spoke into my heart in a way a book hasn’t done in years...
I connected with Willa! I saw so many of my thoughts play out on that page and it was a kick in my heart when the letter was “rewritten” as if God wrote it. (I needed that!)
I ADORED GABE SO MUCH!!!! I just wanted to reach through the page and give him a big hug! I wish he had more page time, but at the same time the time he had on the page was powerful. (A little bit goes a long way)
There were SO many stories happening and in all honesty I wish the book was so much longer! I didn’t want to leave the world, the healing that was happening. So many lives and happily ever after I wanted to see completed.
I loved loved loved the letter troupe and Joanna did an AMAZING job with it!
I just LOVED the story! I finished it feeling full & content. It was poetic, and perfect!
