Publisher's Summary

Chloe Lorraine Kimball is born at the estate of Ivy Manor in the wee hours of the twentieth century. Becoming a young woman, and having a home filled with everything a young girl could desire, she still lacks the one thing she wants above all else: unconditional love from her parents. With the help of friends, Chloe strikes out on her own, determined to stand apart from her family. She embraces marriage and a career, but not even motherhood brings her what she longs for. Her world comes crashing down amid the opening months of the Depression, and Chloe must realize that whether or not she's capable of giving and receiving love is entirely up to her. Will she find happiness on her own terms? Chloe is the first story in the Women of Ivy Manor series about four generations of women, set against the sprawling tapestry of the twentieth century.

I found this to be an enjoyable read. It was fun as well as historical. I normally don't listen to books this short but I found this one to be just right. It piqued my interest in women of the twentieth century and that era in general. I found that the author did a good job of covering many historical events in short order without making the story choppy.

I did not enjoy this book. It was sappy. The story line was interesting, but all of the characters were more interesting then Chloe. I began to wish she would go away so we could learn about the others. Waste of time.
