In The Rose of Winslow Street, Libby Sawyer and her father return from summer vacation to find another family living in their home. Widower Michael Dobrescu brought his family all the way from Romania to stake a decades-old claim on their house, and he has no plans to leave. As a contentious legal battle drags on, Libby finds herself drawn to Michael and his mysterious past. But she’ll soon have to choose between her family and a man with decidedly unclear intentions.

Any additional comments?
I don't usually write reviews but this book was so beautiful I had to share. Not only was the story great the narration was wonderful Barbara Rosenblat is one of my fav narrators but she out did herself on this book she made the characters come alive for me. The story made me cry and Barbara made it real. I love romance novels and don't get me wrong I do like a little trashy sex scenes sometimes but this story just didn't need it. I loved it! Buy it! Worth your credit ? Yes!

1879 Liberty Meets Her Match
In Colden, Massachusetts a rag-tag family of Romanian squatters have moved into Professor Sawyer's home . . . brusque, oddly handsome and protective, yet totally out of line, taking over their house, Michael manages to charm Liberty (Libby), the professor's daughter . . . for a little while . . . with the court case looming to prove who actually owns the house, Libby and Michael begin to forge a friendship . . . as do Libby and Michael's sons, Luke and Andre . . . and Libby learns more about Michael's wounded sister, Mirela . . . the story is multi-layered, very interesting . . . with the inventions of Professor Sawyer, Libby's paintings, the story of the roses, and the wonderful weaving in of the making of perfume . . . but the very best . . . its the heart of a woman to see the best in others . . . to seek out good . . . which only comes from our Lord . . . not from a book, not from school, not from a university, but only from God . . . for He gives us beauty from ashes . . . The Rose of Winslow Street is one of the most satisfying, and GOOD books I've ever listened to . . . its not religious, but it is full of the kind of love that only God gives . . . BRAVO, Elizabeth Camden!
