Now, Lillian's unexpected circumstances are leading her to a made-over life in Calburn, an exciting business - and a sweet new love with a handsome local man.

But will she have the courage to unveil the truth surrounding a past scandal and the loss of her husband? The answers may be as close as the mulberry tree in her yard - and Lillian must dig deep within herself to Wght the secrets and lies that threaten to uproot the past she cherished and the future she treasures....

It will draw you in

This book starts off in medias res. You will wonder from the very first page -- what in the world is going on??? The main character will draw you in as she discovers who she is and who the man was that she married. She will also make you want to head to the kitchen and cook a five course meal! There are no really red hot love scenes but there are more than enough mysteries to keep you enthralled! I enjoyed this book until the end (which left me a little dissappointed but I still recommend this book).

Almost!

I was very close to rating this book as a 5 all around. however great the story was it fell flat in the end. All that detail in the book was awesome but what a deflated ending.

Narration was grating

I like Jude Deveraux, but just could not become immersed in the story because of the narration. It felt dated, a bit stiff. Wanted to like this book but it was a wasted credit.

A very INTERESTING read.

This type of book is my favorite. You don’t want to put it down because it’s so interesting and you want to know what happens, but it’s not suspenseful or driven by strong emotion. It just so darn INTERESTING. I can listen to this book every few years and feel like I’m visiting old friends and immerse into their comfortable, hopeful, struggling lives.
Well developed and intricate characters. Thorough plot with quite a lot of pleasant surprise and intrigue, but not suspenseful..it is restful.

A third in and very bored....

Definitely struggling here. The characters are not interesting and the story is contrived. I am going to return it and get my credit back. Deveraux can do better.
