A Top 10 iBooks Bestseller from a New York Times Bestselling Author!
England, 1677: Lily Ashcroft is far and away the most conventional member of her eccentric family. Though she fell for dashing Oxford professor Lord Randal Nesbitt at the tender age of sixteen, she buried her feelings in deference to society's expectation that her older sisters marry first. Four years later, her sister Rose has now set her sights on Rand—and though it breaks her heart, what else can Lily do but help her beloved sister land the man of her dreams?
What no one considers are Rand's feelings on the matter. He's been nursing a secret affection for sweet, compassionate Lily ever since their first meeting. But Rose is just as beautiful and shares his academic interests. Now he finds himself caught between two lovely sisters—the one he's expected to wed and the one who's captured his heart...
A complete, standalone story—no cliffhangers!

I enjoyed this so much that I had to leave time in the afternoon and evening to read this glorious story of love and redemption in the 17th century. The way you paint the historical landscape with words makes you feel like you are there seeing it with your own eyes. You must read all the series in order. Can't wait to start the story of Rose.
It was a perfect book to make you smile and cry. All the flower books are a wonderful read.
It is a five star book!
Lily and rand are awesome. I wanted the story to go on
