Product Description

Sometimes a glimpse into the past can help make sense of the future …
Everyone thinks Lexi is crazy when she falls in love with Hollingsworth House – a crumbling old Georgian mansion in Yorkshire – and nobody more so than her husband, Dylan. But there’s something very special about the place, and Lexi can sense it.

Whilst exploring the grounds she stumbles across an old diary and, within its pages, she meets Allie – an Australian nurse working in France during the First World War.

Lexi finally realises her dream of buying Hollingsworth but her obsession with the house leaves her marriage in tatters. In the lonely nights that follow, Allie’s diary becomes Lexi’s companion, comforting her in moments of darkness and pain. And as Lexi reads, the nurse’s scandalous connection to the house is revealed …

Format: Kindle Edition
It’s 1945 and Alexandria (Allie) Jamieson is enjoying the spring sun at Hollingsworth House. Her body is racked with pain but she vows to herself that she must finish writing her diary so that someday someone will read it and know of the life and the love she had and that true love does exist.

2010 – Alexandria (Lexi) O’Connor’s marriage is failing. Her and Dylan’s love has been buried beneath careers and possessions. Lexi is inexplicably drawn to an old run down mansion currently for sale. While looking around the grounds she finds a diary and finds herself enthralled by the life and love of Allie Jamieson and Daniel Hollingsworth.

I loved this dual time frame romance. The harrowing experiences of the nurses during WWI were moving and their relentless and tireless devotion to the wounded soldiers under impossible conditions was extraordinary.

Allie’s story was the foundation of the novel and on finding the diary and reading Allie’s story Lexi comes to learn that love is sometimes about compromise.

This is a story about relationships and give and take and the changing views of society over time.

I liked that Lexi’s parents were supportive of Lexi but didn’t take sides.

And as it always should be, problems are solved and lives are saved and everyone lives happily ever after.

Recommended to all Historical Fiction Romance readers.
