    2.5 Very much a book of time and place, a lighter, quiet read. Stories within a story as a grandmother tells her granddaughter of times past. Times when women had little choice but to marry, a journey of the heart spanning over fifty years. I have liked this authors books in the past, ...

    3 stars for this one from me -- I'm normally a huge Sandra Dallas fan, I love that she's a local author and I like the historical elements she puts in her books. This one just didn't grab me though and I didn't feel sucked in to the characters and the storyline. Maybe it was just my...
