"there is how we were before, and how we are now, and the time between is spent choosing which doors to open and which to close"
*** stars Thirty-four-year-old Eleanor Murray is consumed with guilt for causing the accident that paralyzed her sister and for falling in love with her sister?s husband. But when her boss offers her a part-time job caring for his elderly aunt, Helena, Eleanor accepts, hoping this good deed will help atone for her mistakes. On the barrier island of Edisto, near Charleston, Eleanor slowly draws out the bitter and withdrawn Helena through their mutual love of music and of GiGi, her boss's daughter. Drawing the older woman out of her depression, Eleanor learns of her life in Hungary, with her sister, before and during World War II. She hears tales of passion and heartache, defiance and dangerous deception. And when the truth of Helena and her sister?s actions comes to light, Eleanor may finally allow herself to move past her own guilt. **** Very nice character development. Sometimes moves a little slowly in reaching the WWII history, some of which is telegraphed early on. The romance is predicable, but not a large part of the story line. Could have used some editing, but I mildly recommend the book.
The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.
