Living with the two Miss Groves in Ivy Cottage, impoverished gentlewoman Rachel Ashford is determined to earn her own livelihood...somehow. When the village women encourage her to open a subscription library with the many books she has inherited or acquired through donations, Rachel discovers two mysteries hidden among them. A man who once broke her heart helps her search for clues, but will both find more than they bargained for?
Rachel's friend and hostess, Mercy Grove, has given up thoughts of suitors and fills her days managing her girls' school. So when several men take an interest in Ivy Cottage, she assumes pretty Miss Ashford is the cause. Exactly what - or who - has captured each man's attention? The truth may surprise them all.
Meanwhile, life has improved at the coaching inn, and Jane Bell is ready to put grief behind her. Now if only the man she misses would return - but where is he?
As the women of Ivy Hill search for answers about the past and hope for the future, might they find love along the way?

Wonderful Story with Lovable Characters
This is a compelling sequence to the tale of Ivy Hill and the people who fill it's homes and heritage. As always, Julie draws us into to a deep friendship and love for the characters. The twists and turns of their journey are true to life and draw us constantly forward to the next chapter and the next book.

Such a delightful book. Perfect for this season in my life when I was looking for something to take my mind off of heavy things. Great story lines. Switched back and forth between characters beautifully.
