This Edwardian England novel holds mystery and secrets, which are tucked into the character’s lives so neatly that I just had to keep reading! Margaret Lounsbury (Maggie) is part of loving family, the daughter of a wealthy man, before tragedy shatters her life. Maggie and her little sister’s world is upended in what seems to be a permanent departure from their childhood wealth and affluence. She and her sister, Violet, live with their grandmother, while Maggie works in their millinery shop. Behind Maggie’s elegant and ladylike appearance is a troubled heart vexed with unanswered questions from the past and growing unforgiveness.
Nathaniel Harcourt inherits Morningside Manor, his father’s estate, and has partial control of his father’s engineering company. Nathaniel is challenged with family relationships as well as important business decisions, which seem near-to-impossible to solve. His interest in Maggie is believable and frankly, I enjoyed reading this work of fiction all the way through!
What an excellent title, which is quoted from part of Psalm 37:6 in the Bible! This is a highly recommended novel on my book shelf and I encourage any reader of historical fiction to give Carrie Turansky’s novels a look-see.
