    Rosie and Abigail are like family, Ina Merriweather used to say. That is, until the day Ina abruptly cast out her housekeeper, Rosie, and her 15-year-old daughter, Abigail. Abigail felt deeply betrayed, especially by Ina's daughter, Lila, who was her closest friend. Only Lila's twin brother, Vaughn, with whom Abigail had been exploring the joys and heartaches of first love, showed any compassion.

    Overall

    This is just my HUMBLE opinion, but this book seriously needed a good editor. By part three, I was getting rather sick of the unbearably long scenes and ticked off that a lazy or incompetent editor was unwilling to move paragraphs/chapters around to make a tighter, more compelling story. At 15 hours, I longed for it to wrap up. Since I had put in the time to listen to parts one and two, I felt I needed to see it to the end. Hence, fast forward worked nicely. I don't think I missed anything critical for several hours of listening that way. And I managed to get to the rather predictable ending. Don't waste your credit even if you love Eileen Goudge.
