Molly is heartbroken when the she learns that the inn that her grandmother took care of for decades is about to close its doors. With her grandmother as the primary caretaker, Molly was prepared to step right into her footsteps. However, although she learns that another family, the Frost family, owns the inn which is called Hydrangea House, Molly hopes for at least one more season to welcome and care for guests.
Molly’s plans don’t prove difficult at the beginning, as the inn is fully booked. But when she gets a phone call from an older lady desperate to stay at the inn for a very short time, Molly begins to find out that she has a deeper connection to the inn than she ever expected. Not only does Molly find a way to accommodate the stranger, but she learns more about her grandmother than she ever expected.
Molly finds herself digging deep to discover the mystery behind her grandmother’s past, and how that past has a direct impact on her life now. She is not alone in her quest however, as one of the guests named Matt shows great interest in Molly and her desire to find out more about her history.
What a wonderfully warm story! Both the setting and the characters pulled me into this touching story right from the very start. Difficulties start to add up for Molly, but her strength shone through time and again. The thread that connected Molly’s past and future was tied into a specific item that delved deep into her past, and it was interesting to see how things unfolded in this exceptional book by Kristin Harper.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
