Sarah E. Ladd is a wonderful author who carefully wove this story of secrets, deception and love into a delightful book. This book was a page turner for me and I spent way too many nights staying up way too late because I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. The author describes each setting beautifully; Willowgrove Hall with all it’s grandeur, and she makes you feel at home and loved in the Stanton house. I enjoyed getting to know each character. This is a wonderful read and one I would highly recommend.
