Another lovely read by Kate Morton. The Sisters Blythe are full of intrigue and mystery, and book publisher Edie Burchill will get swept away in the sisters' past during World War II. A book of romance, mystery and historical events mingled with characters who love the written word.

Favorite Quotes:

"Amid the smell of ink and binding, the dusty motes in the beams of strained sunlight, the embrace of warm, tranquil air, I felt that I could breathe more easily" -Edie

"Ancient walls that sing the distant hours.."

"You mentioned that you're a bibliophile?" "My mother says I was born with a book in my hand."

"All houses have hearts; hearts that have loved, hearts that have billowed with contentment, hearts that have been broken."
