Publisher's Summary

Widow Dilly Carey has struggled out of poverty to make a life for herself. Dilly should be content, but she is troubled by the one secret she must never share: the true parentage of her daughter, Olivia, whom Dilly gave away at birth.

It's time for Dilly to make her peace with the choice that she was forced to make, but will she also find a way to a new happiness - and a new love?

all's well

great end to the trilogy of books. somewhat predictable in places but enjoyable none the same. the only negative is the poor narration .

Really lovely

I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 of the Dilly series, After listening to the first one I couldn’t wait to start number 2 followed by number 3. I feel sad now that I have come to the end.
