    Austin, Texas - 1904: Abandoned by the love of her life and still mourning the loss of her mother, Lily Donaldson has turned her back on the pain and come to Austin for a fresh start, working for the Marshall family as a kitchen maid in their luxurious mansion, the Butterfly Palace. The tasks before her are legion, and her mistress less than pleasant, but at least Lily’s new life will be, if nothing else, distracting. But one night, while serving at a dinner party, Lily recognizes the man who abandoned her, Andy, her liaison from the livery stable, the blacksmith’s son...sitting among the distinguished guests.

    Couldn't finish because of the narration.

    Unsure, since I couldn't finish this book.

    At the turn of the 20th century, Elli Korpela boarded The Baltic as a mail-order bride. But the threat she thought she was escaping somehow followed her to America... Escaping a forced engagement, Elli sought refuge in an arranged, mail-order marriage. Her betrothed is a Texan named Nathan White. As she glimpses her future husband and his darling niece at the train station, she instantly knows her risk will prove the best decision she’s ever made.

    Lovely but short

    It was a lovely story, just so sad it ended so quickly. Narrator was very good. May God bless all of you
