About the book:
Imagine sitting at the window of your bedroom, peering out at the expansive Blue Ridge Mountain range. And your room isn’t a typical bedroom—it’s the quarters housing the stable hands at Biltmore Estate. The most luxurious home ever built in America.
Jason Williams is fortunate to be one of those stable workers. He’s a troubled soul, and he’s hiding something. The obscurity of the mountains seemed like the perfect place. However, now that Mr. Vanderbilt, the owner of the estate, has married a woman who brings countless newcomers to the manor, Jason fears that what he has hidden will be unearthed.
Maisy Fulton, a kind and caring laundress, is intrigued by Jason. He’s handsome and dedicated to his work, but he avoids interaction with others as much as possible. He rarely speaks to anyone. She’s determined to find out why, even though her desire to befriend him isn’t well received.
Her loving heart pushes her to persevere, yet she soon discovers that the mystery of Mr. Williams may never be solved. Secrets and lies, heartache and loss, plague their lives and compound their troubled friendship. Only when the stakes are at their highest do their revelations heal the past and forge a path toward an unexpected future.
