I have only read one other Elizabeth Camden novel and I absolutely loved it. This one was no different. It was so very good and I was drawn into the story from the very beginning. I must admit that I did not like Quentin at all in the beginning. But as the story progressed and we learned more about him, his past, and as his feelings towards Sophie grew, he grew on me. I very much enjoyed this novel and I would highly recommend it especially for those who are a fan of historical fiction. You can get a copy for yourself anywhere books are sold.
Book description (from Amazon):
Fascinated by Dierenpark, an abandoned mansion high atop a windswept cliff in the Hudson River Valley, Sophie van Riijn sees no harm in setting up a rooftop weather station for her work with the newly established Weather Bureau. While the villagers are suspicious of the mysterious estate and its tragic history, Sophie has come to see it as her own enchanted piece of paradise.
The first Vandermark to return to the area in sixty years, Quentin intends to put an end to the shadowy rumors about the property that has brought nothing but trouble upon his family. Ready to tear down the mansion, he is furious to discover Sophie trespassing on his land.
Instantly at odds, Quentin and Sophie yet find common ground when she is the only one who can reach his troubled son. There’s a light within Sophie that Quentin has never known, and a small spark of the hope that left him years ago begins to grow. But when the secrets of Dierenpark can no longer be kept in the past, will tragedy triumph or can their tenuous hope prevail.
