About the book:
Lily Larsen is given no choice but to leave her beloved home in Cades Cove, Tennessee. She’s sent to St. Louis to live with her uppity aunt, who’s determined to turn Lily into a proper young woman.
Brokenhearted, Lily succumbs to her aunt and uncle’s odd ways, though she can’t understand why her estranged relatives suddenly care about her. She’s schooled in etiquette and groomed for the purpose of marrying into wealth. However, she remains guarded, fearing that her secrets will be discovered and ruin any chance for happiness.
Violet Larsen desperately misses her beloved sister. She carries the burden of family secrets and wishes that she’d been the one sent away. Her feelings change when a dear childhood friend returns from war. His battle scars are evident, but she’s determined to help him mend his body and more importantly, his heart.
Caleb and Rebecca Henry struggle with a marriage that should be happy. They love each other and enjoy raising their beautiful baby girl, yet something’s missing. Caleb knows exactly why they’re having difficulties, but if he tells his wife the truth, it could ruin everything.
The fear of discovery keeps everyone hushed into silence.
