A light touch is my best description of this book.  While there are several interesting strong characters in this book the real main character is a single piece of paper.  And the plot is how this single piece of paper with barely a few hundred words can have such varying and intense effects on the unique situations and characters in the novel.

This sweet soft romance centers around Willa, who is definitely not looking for romance. Lightly dealing with historical occurrences and situations, Willa is a woman who thinks she knows exactly what she wants.  But it’s a struggle when you want what is socially acceptable for men but not for you as a woman.

Counter this with Gabe, a man of quiet strength who knows who he is. And a variety of characters who are trying to do the right thing either for the family or for themselves.  A spirited horse adds a nice touch and a discussion point for how relationships work.

Like most light romances, this is a predictable tale but the letter adds just the right amount of twist to make this tried and true plot line more intriguing and satisfying. The ending was a little too abrupt for my liking as even though I knew what would happen, I would have liked just a little more closure.  Maybe the author was leaving a space for another book? One can hope.

A pleasant read that will leave you with a contented feeling.


Focused on a career in medicine and not on romance, Willa Duvall is thrown slightly off course during the summer of 1859 when she discovers a never-opened love letter in a crack of her old writing desk. Compelled to find the passionate soul who penned it and the person who never received it, she takes a job as a nurse at the seaside estate of Crestwicke Manor.

Everyone at Crestwicke has feelings—mostly negative ones—about the man who wrote the letter, but he seems to have disappeared. With plenty of enticing clues but few answers, Willa’s search becomes even more complicated when she misplaces the letter and it passes from person to person in the house, each finding a thrilling or disheartening message in its words.

Laced with mysteries large and small, this romantic Victorian-era tale of love lost, love deferred, and love found is sure to delight.
