Amazing Story Highly Recommendation

I’m a huge fan of Biltmore Estate and visit at least once a month. I love this book and highly recommended it. It’s detail and flow just ease you into the characters and able to place your self into the story like you are watching it unfold like a movie in your mind.

Mostly enjoyable

I found the religious elements heavy handed but overall it was a light sweet story. The narrator was excellent, which is half the enjoyment of an audio book.

Love Shifts Goals

Mac and Tilly, both from working class backgrounds and both from "Big" families. Each with goals to better themselves and help family, but split goals in different directions. Mac believes you can work this to advantage for each and Tilly doesn't want to bend. Sweet love story, worth every minute.

4.5 STARS OF YUMMY GOODNESS :)

Any additional comments?

This is such a sweet story. I love sappy, sweet, love stories. They just make me happy. When I am in a foul mood I know I can pick up a "love" story and just be happy. This book did that for me.

Of course it has it's frustrating parts, but that's what keeps me listening :). It's so aggravating listening too a book and knowing that the characters need to get together and they just don't see it. UGH...hehe.

Tillie has dreamt about being a ladies maid for years. Her mother has dreamed of it even longer than that. Tillie's mother prepped her for being a ladies maid her whole life. Tillie is a very determined young woman, and does all she can to take over for Mrs. Vanderbilt's foreign maid when she leaves. What Tillie didn't expect is Mack.

Mmmm....Mack. Handsome, yummy, sweet Mack. Tillie didn't expect Mack. She didn't expect to be drawn to him. She didn't expect Mack to be such a good man. She didn't expect Mack to watch out for her even without her asking. Mack is who all women wish for. hehe. Book boyfriends. HEHE. Mmmm.mmmm...Mack.

This story is so sweet. I loved the setting, the writing, the narrator. Everything. It was just what I was looking for. I love the LOVE story.

If you are looking for a sweet, historical romance this book is just the right thing for you. I loved reading about the house, the way things worked in the house. I love reading about it, but I know I never would have been able to live back then! Even if it gets a little aggravating at times.
