One of the best by Susan Wiggs. Though her books qualify as "chick lit" they always go deeper into trauma and healing. Fully developed characters, a great sense of place and a happy ending. What's not to love?

This is one of the best books I've read in quite awhile! I'm going to check out her other books and make sure I've read them all!

I have always enjoyed the stories of Susan Wiggs and this has to go down as one of my favorites. This is an interesting tale of love that takes place in the present time and travels back to the end of World War II in France. Love has been lost and fear has taken in its place in Camilles life, but as the story progresses she is forced to move into the world again. But she is not the only person who find love. Through her restoration of photos she pieces together the story of her father and his mother and her love. Delightful story with characters that makes your heart warm as they travel through their journey in life. One of her best books.
