Review From Booklist: When Claire Barclay's widowed mother marries Leo Harrison and they move to an estate in Alloa, Scotland, Claire's only friend is Jonas, who lives on the estate's rundown farm. The pair is inseparable until the night she decides to confess her love, and he says he wants nothing to do with her. Shocked and devastated, Claire takes time to travel rather than start university right away. Whe she meets Art Barrington in New York, loves blossoms between them. Years later, she returns to Alloa when her mother dies, and she finds Leo suffering from dementia. Because the house means so much to Claire, Art conceives the notion of turning it into a conference center, but they aren't the only ones interested in the house. Jonas, who has made his fortune, has also been running Leo's life, leaving Claire to question his motivations. Pilcher weaves a wonderful story filled with love, deceit, and friendship that is reminiscent of his mother Rosamunde's work.
