National bestselling author Joan Medlicott pens a heartwarming tale of a family found. — Widowed Amelia always portrayed her marriage to Thomas ... more »Declose as complete perfection. They lived in Paris and entertained widely for a glittering crowd; only the tragic loss of their little girl marred what appeared an ideal existence. So when Miriam Smith arrives with her daughter Sadie on Amelia's doorstep in a snowstorm, claiming to be the illegitimate child of the long-dead Thomas, Amelia reacts with shock and fury. Could Thomas possibly have had a secret life he hid from her -- a life that would have made their marriage vows a lie?
Rebuffing the wise counsel of her housemates, Grace and Hannah, Amelia dismisses the possibility of a family of her own and buries herself in the pain of betrayal and humiliation. Little Sadie is the spitting image of Amelia's own lost daughter, though, and she cannot help taking mother and child into her heart. But danger stalks Miriam, and it looks as if Amelia might lose this family, too. When Mother's Day arrives, will she be left with empty arms...or with her deepest longings fulfilled?
This beautiful tale of mothers and daughters is an enchanting addition to Joan Medlicott's bestselling Covington books.« less

If you like the Joan Medlicott series, then this book is for you. Very easy read. Too simple and predictable for me. Good book for tweens or teenagers, as well as adults who like this series. I found found some of the characters to be pushy and bossy and not very understanding of Amelia's feelings.
