WOW was all I can say to summarize this book up...This was filled with page turners...ones which had me at the edge of my seat *wishing I could read faster however wanting to read slower so the book wouldn't end!*
This all starts with Heather Conrad who decides to take her boss up on the offer of house-sitting her new house while she goes away on a business trip, while also leaving her to take care of her 6 year old daughter "Izzy." Since Heather has been her personal assistant, she was very close to the daughter so while it was an inconvenience at first, she pleasured the company of the little vibrant girl. This house was not only big and huge, they soon find out that it is also filled with stairways and passages and hidden doors! I found that very intriguing! I would be so fascinated to live in such a house that not only a history, but a story! And this story was a doozie!
Thinking Heather was being followed by a strange man, a security guard come to their rescue at a local coffee shop. Both Heather and Ryan actually start to hit it off and she opens up to him and starts to reveal her past...at the same time, Izzy was a little determined little girl. She decided to explore the house on her own. While getting lost through stairways she stumbles on an old chest - one that contained some stories of a maid working in that house prior to the Titanic sailing. The stories are then told at the same time -> In the perspective of Maggie the servant, then back to Heather and Izzy. Ryan, Heather, Izzy and Maggie have all experienced sadness in their life, but I will tell you this ending makes all that sadness worth while! This story takes you places, both good and bad that leave you feeling an array of emotions! The ending to this story really makes it complete :)
I LOVED IT! I will definitely be buying this book when it does come out as well as I look forward to reading more books written by this author!!
