A beautiful story of love finding a way, against all odds & on the far side of life. Deep insights into the simple but beautiful Quaker philosophy. And the ways single adults deal with domineering children who think they know everything, & have planned out their parents' lives for them. How older people can become rejuvenated through a busy life & a beautiful love life! Daisy Newman's writing is sweet, clean, descriptive & insightful. You will even fall in love with spoiled kids who learn from their elders!

From the Inside Cover:

With her special magic, Daisy Newman has intertwined two unusual love stories. One is the continuing story of Peter and Serenity Holland who face the stress of building two careers while trying to meet the needs of Ross, their little boy. The other love story's two lovers are both int heir seenties. Oliver Otis, a widower, has been a wise mentor for the Hollands and hopes they will carry on in Firbank after he is gone. Now he falls in love with Loveday Mead, who has come to the little Quaker village of Kendal in search of material about her mother's family.
Both stories lead through difficulties stemming fromt he pressures and prejudices of modern life. And both are satisfying in their conclusions through the influence of the Quaker way.
