bookshelves: first-reads, memoir
Read from June 28 to July 16, 2012

This book was recieved as the result of a GoodReads giveaway.

I was a bit leery picking up this book as I knew I had a busy few weeks ahead of me and might not get enough time to pick it up or worse, what if I forgot what was going on and who was who?

Let me reassure you, this is the PERFECT summer read! I'm not a romance girl and although some may consider this a romance genre I loved the weave of the story and the richness of the characters...I would find myself sometimes cross with Edith Wharton, our main character, and then forgiving her a few chapters later. Ahhhh, such is life is it not?

I truly enjoyed the storyline that surrounded Anna, her employee and best friend. Anna was so kind that you truly find yourself thinking that she should find her own happiness in which she does...even if one didn't see it.

I do not wish to ruin the story but will be encouraging my friends to pick up this book when it goes on sale in August! Thank you so much for the opportunity to read this and the patience to wait for me to finish so I could post my review.
