This is the second book by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore I've read (Bittersweet being the other) and I while I wanted to love this, I liked it. A cross between historical and literary fiction, the story unfurled a bit more slowly than I wanted but it very much held my interest. I thought Cassie was well rendered even if I didn't always understand her. I most enjoyed the story of the past and the was there wasn't there a romance between June & Tate all with the Old Hollywood backdrop (that's what really drew me in to wanting to read this one, I admit). Also, how can you not like a story that offers a house as a character in its own right. As soppy as I feel saying it, I fell in love with the idea of a house having dreams and memories. Just on setting and tone alone, I'd definitely recommended for vacation reading.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
