6/1927, Stones Mill, VA. (Blue Ridge Mts.). Spies were everywhere.
Grace Ellen Langdon (19, daughter/sister, outcast, independent, intelligent, forward thinking) had gotten a copy of Jane Eyre.
Olivia “Ollie” Louise Langdon (16, Emily’s youngest daughter/sister, Grace’s cousin/BFF) wasn’t that impressed but she was happy for her cousin, she loved to read.
It was from Uncle Nathan & Aunt Emily “Em”, via Jack (brother) & Alice (sister-in–law).
The Langdon household consisted of Mr. John Langdon (husband/father, mine worker),
Mrs. Rachel Langdon (wife/mother), Raymond (18, son/brother, miner), Thomas (15, son/brother, miner), Matthew (12, son/brother), Peter (11, son/brother), & Robert (6, youngest son/brother).
James Langdon (25, husband, eldest son/brother), & Genevieve Langdon (James’ wife/mother, sister-in-law, PG) had a life of their own.
Charlie Hillard (Grace’s old childhood friend, former infantry man, clerk) had moved back to take care of his ailing father Walter Hillard (widower, drunk, womanizer).
Or is there another reason also?
Walter had passed away.
Aunt Mary (Charlie’s surrogate parent), & Uncle Robert (Charlie’s surrogate parent) had arrived to see how Charlie was doing & take care of the funeral/burial proceedings.
Charlie had come to the Langdon house for dinner. He had something to ask from the family.
Grace had refused Charlie’s proposal twice.
Fast forward. Ollie & Charlie are getting married.
Alice Langdon (wife, Grace’s BFF/teacher), & John “Jack” Langdon (husband, Dearborn station mine mule, Grace’s brother) informed Grace she was going to be an Aunt.
What were Raymond Langdon, Clarence Langdon, Thomas Langdon, & Matthew Langdon up to?
Will Henry Shaw (Irish, son/brother, Paramount night club owner, war vet), or Charlie win Grace’s heart?
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well romance written book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a large set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great romance movie, or better yet a mini TV series. There is no doubt in my mind this is a very easy rating of 5 stars.
