Publisher's Summary

Margo, Kate, and Laura were brought up like sisters amidst the peerless grandeur of Templeton House. Kate's dreams were fueled by a horrible secret . . .

Her childhood had been a lie. Her father had been a thief. Her mind struggled to absorb these facts, to analyze, to accept. Kate Powell had been orphaned at an early age, when she had, essentially, watched her parents die. Her family had been taken away, but she had been given another. The distant kinship didn't matter to Thomas and Susan Templeton. They had taken her in, raised her as their own, given her a home and love.

Now, 20 years later, she has learned the truth from a colleague of her father. A man who did not realize that the Templetons had gone to great lengths to protect the child from knowledge that would hurt and shame her.

Dream Trilogy

Nora has such a brilliant way of weaving stories together, from the first one to the last, all the while adding threads to the tapestry giving a unique pattern to each story, while maintaining the integrity of each character in their own personal place in the series. She's truly a genius in storytelling.

Good Series

Nice example of Nora's earlier work. I like the diversity of the characters and the storyline is humorous and believable. Worth the listen.

Bad Narrator, Great Author

This narrator makes the female cast sound elderly. The men sound ridiculous. This is the second of the series and Margot's character sounded like she was on the verge of a yawn the whole performance. Kate sounded like Margot from book 1. I don't think I'll be able to stomach audio book 3. I'll just read that one outright.

Romance and Mystery

Excellent narrator gave life to the different characters. The romance was complimented by the mystery. An enjoyable listen.
