What will it take for a once-privileged young woman to make her way in the world?

It isn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she has reached the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the War Between the States, she always had servants. Since then, she and her mother have been forced to rely on family to care for them. But now the well of human kindness has run dry–and Cassie must find work to support them.

Unfortunately, leaving the past behind is easier said than done, and Cassie must summon all of her courage and wits to convince local restaurateur and grocer Jacob West that she’s exactly what his business needs.

With her signature sweet romance, Ann Shorey weaves a tale of two people from different backgrounds finding common ground and the hope of a bright future together.

This is definitely my favorite cover of the whole series with that beautiful purple gown. This hasn’t been my favorite series from Ann Shorey, but she is still a keeper shelf author and I always look forward to what she will write next. While the characters might not always be my favorite, I truly enjoy Ann’s writing overall. Often I find that I can hardly put the book down because of a desire to find out what comes next!

I loved Where Wildflower’s Bloom and really enjoyed Ann Shorey’s narratives in When the Heart Heals and Love’s Sweet Beginning and I will definitely look for the more in future series and more of her titles to come in the future. This one just wasn’t my favorite. Check out my uber positive review of Where Wildflower’s Bloom, back here.…
