Publisher's Summary

Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high-society world she's always known and finds herself to be an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely on his own merits. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he's unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora's secret threaten those they love, they'll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy ever after.

Fantastic!

Though not prone to "flights of fancy" Miss Isadora Delafield certainly went on an unexpected adventure in this wonderful book.

I loved getting to know Izzie, seeing her blossom and find what Aunt Birdie would call the "gifts God gives all his children" was simply delightful. I loved all the humorous mishaps Izzie encountered.
I also loved Ian Mackenzie. A man set to climb the ranks of society, until he sees some long buried truths in his heart.

I love the unique humor, quirky characters, and sweet message the author spreads through the pages and into my heart.

No spoilers from me but hold on, there are some children that will steal your hearts and an unusual assortment of pets that keep things interesting.

Sweet but predictable

This was a sweet, light story that included fun elements. The “dramatic” elements were predictable in coming and being solved. Definitely worth getting on sale, worth a credit if you are looking clean romance that focuses on basic Christian values without being too preachy.

Different and fun

At last I found a book that is very entertaining without cussing and without sexual overtures to get in the way of the storyline. Wholesome enough to share with grandkids finally.

Awesome Story and Great Narration!!

This story you clue to it! So much happens in the storyline that you don’t want to stop listening to the audiobook. The narrator does an outstanding job bringing all the characters to life. This is one story that need to be heard.
