    Description

    From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt's WPA folklore writers, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny.

    Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina's Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at the Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney's estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney's only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

    Underdeveloped

    I so very much wanted to like this book. The premise had me hooked. The underdeveloped characters and storyline left it flat, and I struggled to stay engaged.

    The main character, while seemly motivated by circumstance, simply seems to sleepwalk through her life, including a romance with a "hero" who is selfish and quick to believe the worst about his new found love interest.

    Even the characters in the 1930's and the antagonists lack any sort of personality. Motivation for behavior and actions aren't explained, like why a sister would destroy letters without reading them, and why the other sister would continue writing for years after she never receives any responses. One of many implausibilities.

    Finally, it takes a lot for me to dislike a narrator. I can count twice in hundreds of audio books that I've been disappointed in one....and this book is one of those two. She sounds VERY mature. As in elderly, and the heroine is in early 30's. That and her inflection is very often "off", placing emphasis in the wrong parts of the narrative. Extremely off-putting.

    boring

    I read "before we were yours " and loved it! so I tried this one.. I thought the story and the reader were boring.. it finally caught my interest around chapter 16. it ended better and did arouse my interest in the malungeons .. I didn't know about them and will read more about them.

    an excellent book

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was fine, but the story was excellent. I am so glad I bought this book. It kept my attention all the way through. I don't know if there is or will be another book to follow this one, but I hope so. Would like to follow up with some of the characters, especially Grandpa. Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend this book to anyone. And there is romance but not the sleasy sex that some authors seem to feel is necessary. It kept me going to the very end, following family through generations back when there was so much prejudice even with Indians, black folks and white folks! you will follow one family as they came to this country. And the search for proof that will back up the premise that they are all from the same family.

    Interesting...

    Honestly, I bought this book becauae the same author wrote "Before we were yours", an excellent book. This one, I had a hard time making it through the first few chapters, but once the story came together, it was very good.

    I think part of what made it hard was the reader, though a great reader, her voice sounded like a senior woman, which made the romance parts hard to beleive as a young woman. The reader sounded more like a Grandmother than a young woman. Just a personal thing, but they really should cast the sound of the readers voice like they would a movie part....person needs to sound like the person they portray. Because of this, I almost did not finish the book....I would have missed out.

    Finished the entire series

    These books are intriguing. I was unable to stop listening to them. How Lisa Wingate intertwines the characters together is awesome..

    loved this as much as the last by Lisa...

    Can't wait to get another! I love her very real, interesting, and imperfect characters. Their struggles and spiritual growth nudge my own journey toward growing ever closer to God.

    Great book...

    This is a great book but it took me a little bit to get into it. The narrator’s voice sounded too old for the main character.

    A great ending!

    This was a wonderful ending to this beautiful trilogy!! Once again I felt myself transported to the places in the Blue Ridge Mountains and feeling as if I were experiencing it myself.

    Wow! What an ending!

    I have enjoyed this series from the beginning to the end. The author does a great job of working history and mystery and suspense and spirituality into her stories. I will definitely read more from this author.
