I thought the stories of Lizzie and Mattie were so interesting and compelling. The fact that this home actually existed that long ago and touched so many lives was inspiring. I failed to connect as much with Cate and found her portion of the story somewhat of a distraction for me. I couldn't connect the importance of her assistant Laurel's character with the narrative. That said, I did enjoy the book but just felt more drawn to the historical component.
I received this book courtesy of Crown Publishing through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
