Overview
Much-Loved Lawana Blackwell Delivers Another Charming Victorian-Era Tale

In difficult circumstances, Charlotte Ward, once a famed stage actress, tries to restart her career--only to experience disaster. Against her better judgment, her estranged daughter, Rosalind, comes to her mother's rescue and moves her to a quiet English coastal village.

Charlotte is grateful to get to know Rosalind after years apart. As one who has regrets about her own romantic past, it's a joy for Charlotte to see love blossom for her daughter. For Rosalind, however, it's time away from teaching--and now she must care for the mother who wasn't there for her. And what could be more complicated than romance?

Together, mother and daughter discover that healing is best accomplished when they focus less on themselves and more on the needs of others.

Charlotte Ward, a once-famous actress of the Victorian era, is given an opportunity to return to the London stage and escape a sequestered life with her manipulative husband, Lord Fosberry. But instead of giving a triumphant performance, Charlotte ends up in the hospital after succumbing to a fit of nerves. Rosalind Kent, Charlotte’s estranged daughter, offers to take care of her mother after a friend persuades her to let bygones be bygones. Charlotte agrees and they rent a cottage in Port Stilwell, hoping to avoid intrusive tabloid reporters and the clutches of Lord Fosberry. The two main characters are given little to do as they lay low, but the secondary characters are intriguing: Jude Pearce, a bookstore owner, is mourning the death of his grandfather and recovering from the departure of the woman he loves; Danny and Albert Fletcher are rambunctious brothers looking to get away from their hostile stepmother; and Mrs. Deamer, Charlotte and Rosalind’s housekeeper, has been forced into a life of service. The novel is unevenly paced and struggles to convey the complexities of Charlotte and Rosalind’s fraught circumstances. Despite this, Blackwell (The Widow of Larkspur Inn) deals well with abandonment and forgiveness. (June)
