Finding one letter was inspiring to her story. Finding a second was exciting. But when Nell finds the third letter in the rock wall of her newly acquired estate, she’s a little more than curious as to what really happened to Joshua and his beloved Cora.
For this detached author who is starting her life over, Nell finds herself sucked into the idea of the intrigue, yearning and hoping that the lovers found a way to be together.
After asking a couple of new acquaintances in the nearby village about the estate’s history, she meets Reid, a historian and descendant of Joshua himself. They start to put together the pieces of the puzzle that seem to be a Romeo and Juliet style romance in the 1800’s.
Doubts, fears and suspicions threaten to interfere. But what they do learn is that Love sometimes crosses boundaries and time to happen, even in some of the most unexpected ways.
When I first read the blurb, I immediately know that I wanted to read this book. The heroine or more correctly put one of the heroines is a writer, therefore, I was curious how the author would make me (a writer ) excited about the story. I tried to guess various scenarios and got most of them wrong, and I love that.
At first, I couldn't care less about Nell and Reid. All I wanted was to read more of Joshua's letters to Cora. Somewhere along the way, however, I started to get hook with Nell's romance, maybe not as much as Cora but yeah...
A lot of heartbreaking situation was revealed especially with Clive (Joshua's son) but the drama in this book isn't tiresome.
I enjoyed reading this book and recommends it any paranormal readers.
