Yet another book premise which appeals to entirely the wrong audience.
The main flaw (among many) in this book was the main character. Rosalind was such a doe eyed innocent it's hard to believe she didn't' die of fright when looking at her own shadow. Yet we are somehow supposed to believe she leaves her farm, family and small town to move to Chicago to investigate her sisters disappearance? It is baffling that the author decided to make her 23 years old (the author gives no reason why she had not married), if the author had simply made her 16 it would have made her timid, naïve, girlish behaviour more understandable (though not more likeable).
It took the author almost 15 minutes to describe; Rosalind taking up a tea tray to her mistress then exchanging a few greetings with a male member to the household, after which she had to lean against a wall and breath just to get over the stress.
The logical inconsistencies in this book kept piling up such as how Rosalind expected to find her sister and how she obtained a job in the household in the first place being an inexperienced milk maid. There were also some editing mistakes such as one of the main characters being introduced twice.
I recommend to anyone thinking of buying this book to have a look at some of the other titles the author has written (as I should have done) - if Christian fiction appeals to you then enjoy this book.

Years ago, audible used to identify the genre to which books belonged, but no longer.There was nothing in the summary to warn me that this was inspirational fiction, which I avoid whenever possible. Tavia Gilbert is wasted on this drivel. I'm returning this one pronto.
