“It wasn’t Cassie Haddon’s fault that she had managed to reach the age of twenty-five without possessing any useful skills. Until the war, she had always had servants to wait on her. Since then, she and her widowed mother had moved from place to place, relying on family to care for them. Now she’s forced to find work to support them both. What isn’t in her plans is falling for Jacob West, a local restaurateur and grocer. She needs a job and he needs help. But what they both need is love.”
This book is a story about a rich girl who lost her father and became poor when her uncle kicked her and her mother out of the house. Cassie is a character who shows passion and courage when the tough times come upon her. Jacob West is man who has a past and has to overcome living with the past and his feelings for Cassie. I loved this story and how the characters intertwined with each other. The lessons that Cassie learns are lessons that every girl can benefit from. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review from Revell Reads.
