“Beware of a man named Frederick and his offer of marriage.”
Rose’s granddaughters, Rebecca, Leia and Naomi, have never taken her prophecies seriously. But now that Rose is dead, and Naomi has a new man in her life, should they take heed of this mysterious warning?
Naomi needs to master the art of performing. Rebecca rarely ventures out of her house. She’s afraid of what she might see. As for Rebecca’s twin, everyone admires Leia’s giant brain, but now the genius is on the verge of a breakdown.
Rebecca suspects Naomi’s new boyfriend is hiding something. She begs Leia, now living in the US, to investigate.
Leia’s search takes her to a remote farm in Ohio on the trail of the truth behind a tragic death.
Just who is Ethan? And what isn’t he telling Naomi?
In a story full of drama and mystery, the sisters discover there is more that connects them than they realise, and that only together can they discover exactly what’s behind Rose’s prophecy.
This story is delivered at a slow, indulgent pace and really allows you to get to know each sister, each one hiding their own pain and burdens from the others.
As Rebecca sets out to unravel the mystery of Rose’s predictions and a gift of her own, Naomi looks for romance and Leia struggles to find peace in the world of academia.
The main story is charming and has just the right sprinkle of mystery and tension to engage the reader further into the lives of the sisters. The spiritual aspect is such a unique idea and I really enjoyed reading how Rebecca solved each prediction.
However, for me, I feel the most delightful part of the book is the actual story of how the sisters are so bonded despite being so different. I loved seeing their relationship develop and grow stronger through the book and how supportive they were of each other.
If you are looking for a mellow tale with focus on the characters as much as the plot then this is for you.
