From the cover and description of this novel, it's one I'd love to read. Historical novels are my favorite, and the boarding house setting at the beginning of WWII is perfect for a blending of different characters with different backgrounds and challenges--an estranged young couple, a widower, unemployed professors, and a shattered veteran. The secrets of the house and its previous owners, as well as the tragedy mentioned at the end of the synopsis, make you want to read this novel even more, especially knowing that Ms. Dolly has opened her "grand but fading family home" as a boarding house only because she must in order to save it.
