Brianna Kelly was abandoned at Ballymacool House and Boarding School as an infant. She has worked there since she was a wee girl and will likely die there. Despite a sense that she was made for something more, Brianna feels powerless to change her situation, so she consoles herself by exploring the Ballymacool grounds, looking for hidden treasures to add to the secret trove beneath the floorboards of her room.

When Michael Wray, the son of local gentry, is sent to Ballymacool to deal with his unruly cousin, he finds himself drawn to Brianna, immediately and inescapably. There is something about her that feels so . . . familiar. When Brianna finds a piece of silver in the woods, she commits to learning its origins, with the help of Michael. What they discover may change everything.

I have a new favorite book! I fell in love with the characters and Ireland and the entire story she wove around Ballymacool. The Cinderella twist was charming and fit the story perfectly! I felt the pain and loneliness she suffered throughout her life. The main character’s faith was challenged and interwoven beautifully throughout the entire book! The mystery wasn’t overpowering and felt authentic. The romance was sweet and heartfelt. The entire story was just wonderful! A must read!

I’ve found a new favorite author! This was my first novel by Jennifer Deibel and she wompletely won me over.
*I received an advanced copy of this book for my honest review.
