When Addie becomes a governess for young Edward she soon falls in love with his father, John.
Without giving any more of the story away, I must say this story had me guessing most of the way through as to who wanted Addie out of the way and who truly was glad to have Addie in the family.
It was a really good mystery with some lovely romance thrown in also. I loved Addie and how she just said what she felt and didn't try to put on airs or act a certain way because society expected it of her. She was a great character in the story. I also loved her dog, Gideon!! Addie Sullivan is content with her life at the lighthouse.
She misses her father who is deceased and has a strained relationship with her mother. One day a wounded fellow shows up at the lighthouse. As Addie tends his wounds he spots her locket and realizes exactly who she is. Julia Eaton, the missing daughter of Henry and Laura Eaton.

He insists that she return to the Eaton Estate with him to act as a governess to his nephew Edward while he tries to convince Henry that Addie is really Julia. They are immediately attracted to one another. Then there's an attempt made on her life and she finds some secret messages that lead her on a merry chase that doesn't let up until the end of the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing tale. The cover of the book is beautiful and made me want to seek the adventure inside!
The characters in the story came across as very real to me. I loved Addie's personality. She was a no nonsense kinda gal who clung to her faith. But what will happen when that faith is tested?
John was a great hero. He was kind, gentle and loved his son. There was a very real chemistry between him and Addie.
The whole mystery surrounding the story was great and you really don't figure it out until the very end, which I love. If you like romance, mystery and suspense you will love this story.
This is the first book I received from Thomas Nelson for reviewing, and because of shipping problems, by the time I recieved it I had forgotten why I originally picked it. I started reading the book out of obligation, and at first, had a hard time actually enjoying what I was reading.

It felt a bit like a school assignment for the first 80 pages, which is generally how far I will go in a book before I decide whether or not I want to finish it. Luckily, at that point the book actually started to get interesting as Addie became snoopy around the house and began unearthing clues about her mother. I am not much for the mystery genre, but I found the detective-like aspects of this novel much more entertaining than the chaste romance between Addie Sullivan and Lieutenant North, which led up to a climax that was so exciting I chose finishing the novel to sleeping when I was sick with a cold.
Regarding the more religious aspects of the novel, I thought that the depiction of Addie's faith in God to be somewhat watered down and simplified with possibly not enough attention given to its place in her life. Often I find ithis is the case with literature in the genre of Christian fiction. The single time that scripture from the Bible is quoted, it's merely a few lines out of Psalms, and each time that we see Addie praying, she only spends a few moments in prayer before something else requires her attention. This is not to say that all Christian fiction - categorized works do this, as I have read some truly excellent portrayals of faith in Jesus, but this book certainly did.
Overall, I would recommend the book more for its plot elements of mystery and intrigue, not for its religious aspects. Here at Walmart.
