"I dreamed of Noah last night. He was going to ask me to marry him ..."
A rose-covered grave, seventy-nine letters, and a scribbled note unearth buried emotions and the timeless beauty of first love.
When Caroline Myers discovers a box of letters in her deceased mother's trunk, she's captivated by the romance that unfolds between her mother, Emma Rose Walsh, a nineteen-year-old waitress, and Noah Anderson, a handsome young soldier.
Determined to read between the lines, Caroline and her sister, Kate, set out on a search that leads them to the North Carolina foothills and the padlocked gate of the Anderson family cemetery. Will the one who holds the key keep them from unearthing long-buried secrets and fulfilling a request their mother tucked inside the box sixty-four years earlier? Will they find closure-or encounter a surprising revelation that plunges them deeper into the past?
Based on a true story from the author's family.
Reviewer: Lori Parrish
Another perfect dual-time novel where past meets present. This new to me author has done an excellent job in weaving these elements together so you don't notice it. This book is a perfect example of what true love and family should be about.
I devoured this book in a couple of hours it was so good!
Ayers did her job in keeping my attention throughout this beautiful and sweet story that I didn't want it to end. I loved how she described the scenery. It reminded me of the Waltons and the diner scenes reminded me of Happy Days.
Such wonderful characters that I hated saying goodbye to Noah, Emma, and Alice. My heart went out to Noah because he's one of those people pleasers and wears his heart on his sleeve. He's a good guy. I wish Emma was in the story more than she was. I feel like she got shorted, so to speak.
I loved the "past" part of the story if that makes any sense. I think it's because I feel like their lives were more interesting than ours is today. I will still give this book five stars, simply because of the beautiful writing and I love Southern novels.
I highly recommend this sweet story.
I received this book from the author through Interviews & Reviews. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
