Book Summary

In this captivating novella by Dawn Crandall, Nicholette Everstone is already a widow at the age of twenty-two: her husband was murdered on their wedding day. She has just returned to Boston after two years of mourning in Europe. Although her husband was loving, the marriage was an arranged one, and Nicholette would like to wed again–this time for love…and to someone safe.

As she acclimates to life in Back Bay again, Nicholette meets someone she can’t help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices Cal Hawthorne takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of “what if” at bay?

Book Review by Bree Herron

This novella is as enchanting as its title. I really liked the conflicting emotions that Nicholette felt during her journey back to love. The setting was divine and one that had me traveling back east. I thought the historical points and the mourning period was done perfectly and it was easy to get caught up in the story.  To encourage a reader to pick this book up is an understatement. It is a quick and wonderful read that many will find fluttering their heartstrings and having them eager to read the other books in the series.
