This story revolves around a soon to be Christmas wedding of Elizabeth Canning to David Steiner, and is a very quick read. The story is set in the 1880, and to make the wedding special, Elizabeth wants to be wed in her Grandparents cabin, the home her mother and father also used when they were married. While cleaning she discovers her mother’s sister’s diary, and while reading it, her life is changed forever.
While the story held my attention, I felt like I was reading something I had read before. It was predictable and I felt I knew the ending almost from the beginning.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
