Description

From the #1 New York Times author of Before We Were Yours.From modern-day Roanoke Island to the sweeping backdrop of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains and Roosevelt's WPA folklore writers, past and present intertwine to create an unexpected destiny.Restaurant owner Whitney Monroe is desperate to save her business from a hostile takeover. The inheritance of a decaying Gilded Age hotel on North Carolina's Outer Banks may provide just the ray of hope she needs. But things at the Excelsior are more complicated than they seem. Whitney's estranged stepfather is entrenched on the third floor, and the downstairs tenants are determined to save the historic building. Searching through years of stored family heirlooms may be Whitney's only hope of quick cash, but will the discovery of an old necklace and a Depression-era love story change everything?

Review quote

If restaurant ownership has taught Whitney Monroe anything, it is ferocity even amid threats from corrupt local officials set on driving her out of town. With her current investments at risk, she returns to the Excelsior, a crumbling hotel that holds her grandmother's treasures from an era of wealth and propriety. While digging through these objects, Whitney unwittingly stumbles into a gripping family mystery. As she reads through a series of old letters and contemplates an intriguing necklace, Whitney struggles against her need for quick money and becomes determined to preserve, at any cost, the belongings and story she has found. Set in North Carolina's picturesque Outer Banks, Wingate's ("The Story Keeper," 2014) tale of a dark family history becomes an intriguing patchwork of mystery and drama. Readers will feel revitalized as they journey with Whitney through her past as she grows more connected to her heritage and discovers who she really is.--Booklist
