Publisher's Summary

Sheltered since birth at her Kentucky home, Rowena Ballantyne has heard only whispered rumors of her grandfather Silas's vast fortune and grand manor in Pennsylvania. When her father receives a rare letter summoning him to New Hope, Rowena makes the journey with him and quickly finds herself in a whole new world-filled with family members she's never met, dances she's never learned, and a new side to the father she thought she knew. As she struggles to fit in during their extended stay, she finds a friend in James Sackett, the most valued steamship pilot of the Ballantynes' shipping line. Even with his help, Rowena feels that she may never be comfortable in high society. Will she go her own way...to her peril?

Absolutely wonderful

A lovely end to a wonderful series. The narrator was excellent. I highly recommend the whole series and other books by this author.

Stepping into the past

Always enjoy the colorful characters and the quotes from my favorite authors like Jane Austen and Mark Twain. I loved the Rowena and James characters. I like stepping back in time with Laura Frantz's books.
