A young woman's dream, an old man's gift, and the surprises that await us behind every closed door. . .

The house on the hill outside San Francisco was magnificent, built in 1923 by a wealthy man for the woman he adored. When Sarah, a perfectly sensible lawyer, walks through its empty rooms, she is drawn to the once-grand mansion in a way she cannot explain.- to a drama that first unfolded in war-torn France, and to a history she never knew she had.

Using an unexpected legacy, Sarah takes on the dilapidated house and its mysteries.

With the help of architect Jeff Parker Sarah brings the exquisite house back to life, and as one relationship shatters and another begins, she discovers a whole new future.

A novel of daring and hope, of embracing life and taking chances ...

User Review  - Goodreads

Is this book a joke? Is she kidding us with the repetition? The amount she repeats the same thing, in basically the SAME WAY, was shocking. I thought this was Danielle Steel...isn't she supposed to be a really good writer? So confused. Read full review

I felt like the entire time I was reading, I just kept waiting for SOMETHING to happen, but it didn't. The story just kept plodding along. Not even a fun beach read. Read full review
