Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is about two people, Cate and Jack, struggling to put their unhappy pasts behind them, and immersing themselves in the task of sorting all the antiques etc for auction from an old mansion by the sea after its elderly owner dies. Whilst there they discover that the house was once home to two famous sisters, Irene and Baby Blythe who were debutantes in the 1920s, and Cate finds an old shoebox full of memories. She is fascinated by their story, especially when she discovers that Baby, the wilder of the two, went missing and was never found, and she sets out to discover all she can.
It was a little slow in the beginning but turns into a nice story with a gentle mystery, it's not an exciting thriller but it is a pleasant read and I enjoyed it, and was eager to turn the pages as I got further into it.
