Book #4 in the Coming to America series. Karola Breit had come from Germany expecting to marry her childhood sweetheart. But she found that he had married and had children. Even though his wife had died, she couldn't bring herself to marry him, so she became his housekeeper.
I enjoy this series of books as the characters are believable and interesting. You find yourself turning the pages wondering how it will all turn out.
