Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up attending private schools and afternoon teas, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was only five years old, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce became an outsider - until she met Edilean Harcourt. Although she was sixty years Joce's senior, Miss Edi was a kindred soul who understood her like no one else ever had.
When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941. In the letter, Miss Edi also mentions that she has found the perfect man for Joce -- a handsome young lawyer. Joce is shocked to learn that the mystery, the house, and the future love of her life are all in Edilean, a small town in Virginia that Miss Edi never told her about. Hurt that the woman who meant so much to her kept so many secrets, Jocelyn moves to this tight-knit village in an attempt to understand the legacy that has been left to her. As she begins to dig into Miss Edi's mystery, she soon discovers some shocking surprises about her family's history and her own future - and she meets a man with his own mysterious past.

Story within a Story
I really enjoyed this book, and frankly, thought the story within the story was better than the main character's story. I did feel that it ended rather apruptly though, and would have like a little more fleshing out of the relationship between the two main characters.
The story of Edilean and David.
She varied her voice well and her voice is easy to listen to. I liked her, but I thought she made the main characters sound just a tad wimpy.
yes, the end of the story of Edilean and David
On to the next chapter of the Edilean story.
