Another wonderful book by Sandra Dallas and my new favourite by her! A beautiful tale about finding yourself amongst strangers. Lovely, engaging writing -- I was sorry when it was over!

Wonderful story, set in the Old South of 1933. Truly not to be missed if the traditions and history of the south are of intrest to you.

I enjoyed this book. It is a quick read that takes place in Mississippi and also Colorado. It is a little bit of a love story, and little bit of mystery, and takes place in 1933.

This book was very satisfying and entertaining. This suspense and the period (the depression) added together and made it very real.

This was a good book and a fast read - sort of a mystery, sort of a story about finding out the truth about your own family history and an interesting look into Mississippi during the 1930s amid the Depression.

Enjoyed it very much, Sandra Dallas has a way to suck you into the story, and bring her characters to life.

Thumbs down. I could not get into this book. Very slow moving. I posted it this morning, and it on on several wish lists. Good luck, I hope someone enjoys the book.

The story didn't grip and surprise as much as other Sandra Dallas novels, however it did have a somewhat surprising twist at the end. It helps to think of our definition of family and how learning about the past can often help us to learn more about ourselves. I alos liked reading Sandra Dallas historical fiction in a setting other than pioneering the Western US.

I enjoyed this book but not nearly as much as some of her others. It was kind of slow moving. My favorite of what I have read by this author is The Diary of Mattie Spencer. I highly recommend that one.

I was drawn in to this story from the start! I can't wait for her new book Tallgrass to come out in 2007.

I think I have read every book Sandra Dallas has written. She spins a story that holds you from page to page. Always interesting characters and a plot that in entices.
