Hachette Book Group
Rachel Watkins has her hands full. Her mother had been the town midwife, but when her daughter Alice died under her care, she refused to assist in a childbirth ever again. Since thenRachel has assumed the work. She also takes care of Alice's six-year old, Charlotte, because the child's father was lost in World War I. But Rachel's principal job is running the boardinghouse that is the family's main source of income.

One day, Charlotte befriends a stranger ill with influenza, a man who has taken refuge in an old cabin in the woods nearby. Although badly scarred by wounds suffered in the War, he is strong and slowly recovers. When he gradually takes on odd jobs around the house, Rachel accepts his help. She is drawn to him despite his disfigurement, and his voice is comforting, vaguely familiar...

Dorothy Garlock weaves an epic tale...with characters that take on life . This is a must read for historical fans. Out-standing!

One of the best books I have ever read up until now. I would recommend this as a really fine piece of writing that anyone who likes historical novels and a little romance mixed with it would enjoy.
