Wendy Markham really hits home with this novel. She brings Clara McCallum to life with an issue many women today face or can empathize with. Her descriptions of what Clara is going through tear at your heart and make you long for her to be able to find relief from what she is going through. Jed Landry is the perfect 1940s gentleman who meets a very liberated and oddly dressed New Yorker who doesn’t appear to have all her wits about her, but pulls at his heart strings. The story is strong, the characters are strong and this is a wonderful book to read around the Christmas holidays.
