A beautiful story by author Lily Graham with visual descriptions that show the vivid tapestry of history. A poignant read wherein Charlotte, a widow, found out that her husband had bought her a villa, her ancestral home before his death. The story is told in dual timeliness going back into history of Charlotte's father and his family. The secrets revealed make this fun and the way Charlotte starts to live life again makes this an inspiring read. A good read over the weekend.
