Three things cannot long stay hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth. – Buddha
I was excited to read this book because the mystery of the locket really sucked me in. It begins with Laura who inherited a home from a relative that she didn’t know she had. Enlisting the help of a local gardener she brings the grounds back to their former glory and eventually learns he is the grandson of the original gardener for the property. While repairing the property and closing the estate, she finds an old locket hidden in the floor of an upstairs room and wonders about the person who put it there. She begins to have dreams about a young girl, her family and their housekeeper. After some research she discovered that the family she had been dreaming of, existed and had sold the home to her relative. She continues to have dreams that portrayed a secret that had been hidden for decades. I felt she described her characters well and a sense of despair and foreboding was tangled up in the excitement of a forbidden love. The book is well written and I enjoyed it so much that I read it in a day.
