After retiring and putting her own life on hold, Danielle became a caregiver and companion to her elderly Aunt May, a woman whose life had always been a mystery. Danielle never dreamed that her life would change so completely upon the discovery of an item in May's room.
The item revealed to Danielle both sad and unbelievable moments she could never dream possible. This discovery would eventually bring change to Danielle and give her the opportunity to look at her own life differently and to respect her aunt's life and privacy.

Gifted copy for honest review.
It was a great love story.
I am new to audio books and this is the first book I have listened to. Enjoyed very much.
I am not sure what book I would compare it to.
Danielle is my favorite character. Reader portrayed her perfectly.
I could relate somewhat to the Danielle, I have been a caregiver several times. I cried & I laughed, but I am very emotional.
Very well written. Great story, so much emotion in it. Recommend this very highly. I look forward to enjoying more books by the author.
It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.
I really enjoyed this story. It had a wonderful message. Life is short and the road is curvy. Danielle, who's been taking care of her elderly Aunt May, stumbles across an old photo and an apology note from a mystery man from years ago. Although her aunt never married, she had loved and turned her back on love and tells Danielle to 'Always Follow Your Heart'. She also found Aunt May's diary and discovered all the sacrifices she had made for her family. This is a book I'd recommend listening to or reading.
I thought the narrator Denise Krueger did a fantastic job. I loved her dialect.
Another thing is that I really like this author's style. Jacqueline Coote is multi-talented and I look forward to more from both her and Denise. Great Job!
I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.
I loved the plot in this story. Listening to how things were way back when. It reminds me of stories my own mother has told me!
Fav character is Danielle. I love her role in this story. I even love the accented voice the narrator used for her (sounds like a Brooklyn accent). It was great how Danielle pieced together the different parts of May's life.
Again, Danielle is my fav character. Great voice for her too! Very believable!!!
George's son George at the funeral. When he met with Danielle and handed her his father's last book before he died & it was inscribed to May. When Danielle read that it brought me to tears! Bring tissues!
Great little story with a big punch! Kuddos to author for a job well done. To put that much emotion in a little book is a gift every author dreams of! Good Job!!!
