Publisher's Summary

Bess leads a quiet life, intent on easing the burdens of her widowed father. She acts as maid, cook, and assistant in his medical practice - but she is wearied by the thankless work and her father’s lack of kindness. And then a miracle happens. Lady Agatha Buxton of Astoria Abbey is seeking a physician for her ailing son, Hugh, and, sensing that Bess is trapped in her situation, offers the young woman a position as nurse. Despite Bess’s father’s objections, she accepts - and her life is forever changed. 

Bess and Hugh enjoy an immediate bond of friendship, which quickly blossoms into love. Despite his dire prognosis, the couple makes the bittersweet decision to wed, embracing what little time they have. Their tender union ushers in a season of both joy and heartbreak, and Bess discovers greater meaning in life than she’d ever imagined. As she’s confronted with the sorrow of living without Hugh, Bess finds herself at a crossroads - will she have the courage to trust her heart and allow herself to love again?

Not my favorite

I have read most of her books but this one was hard to get through. Didn't care for the narrator's voice. Should have been younger with a British accent. Story was slow and boring.

<br /><br />perfection.

first, the narration was very good. I liked the innocence of wealth. the story was excellent. I have tried to read all of her books but I find myself so immersed in the story I read them so quickly putting off things I should be doing.
