Two story lines in two different time periods and thankfully they came together just perfect at the end. Lillian is an elderly woman who never left the hometown that she was born and raised in and never married, she tells her story of her adolescence and young adulthood in this small town. Rosie is her niece and has moved to this small town to help her great-aunt settle her affairs and move her into an elderly home, she may fall deeply in love with this small town.

I loved the mix of historical as Lillian's story was in the middle of war time as the men are being called to fight and the modern storyline with all the fantastic feels of a small town just trying to make it by. Rosie was a fantastic character to tell her story, she wasn't too whiny and showed resilience and tenacity. It was easy to want to root for her and hope that she finds happiness.
