"Hazel Gaynor's tale of divided sisters conjures a bygone era with a poignancy so exquisite one can almost smell the violets." -- Kate Beaufoy, author of LIBERTY SILK and ANOTHER HEARTBEAT IN THE HOUSE "Gaynor once again brings history to life. With intriguing characters and a deeply absorbing story, her latest is a fascinating examination of one city's rich history and the often forgotten people who lived in it." -- Booklist "Given the awards she has already received, we are sure to hear much more from Hazel Gaynor-and that is a good thing." -- New York Journal of Books "Gaynor's talent for evoking a time and place, as well as her ability to write a beautifully heart-wrenching story with realistic characters, enables her to touch readers. The unexpected twists and turns of the plot and jumping of timelines holds readers' attention to the satisfying climax." -- RT Book Reviews (4 Stars) "Historical details and the unique perspective of penniless, physically challenged young girls could make Gaynor's second historical novel a good book club choice. A tidy ending and sweet romance will satisfy readers hoping to exhale a long, contented sigh as they finish the last page." -- Library Journal
