London, 2019. American journalist Maddie Warner travels to London to interview Precious about her life in pre-WWII London. Maddie, healing from past trauma and careful to close herself off to others, finds herself drawn to both Precious and to Colin, Precious’ enigmatic surrogate nephew. As Maddie gets closer to her, she begins to unravel Precious’ haunting past – and the secrets she swore she’d never reveal …
My Review: This was a lovely read. I have always loved Karen White's southern books and though this was a deviation from her normal books and this one was just as great. This story was told in multiple POV's and it was very well done. I liked each of the POV's and how they wove seamlessly together. I loved the characters and the plot. The writing was fantastic and I was sad for it to end.
