I would describe this book as a "feel good read," because that is how I felt when I finished reading it! This story gives us a look into what the life of Service was like here in america for those working for some of the most wealthy Americans in the late 1800's. This in itself makes it a very interesting read. There is an abundance of stories about British servants, but not as much about the life of American Servants. But this story offers so much more. It is focused on the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. If you have ever been there and visited this wonderful place, then you should enjoy this story. Although the story is a work of fiction, there are moments of historical accuracy and it allows the reader a peek into what life was really like on this grand estate. It combines romance and history into a most enjoyable read.
