Booklist Review

Before losing his son in World War I, a farmer's son dreamt of building a beautiful castle in England's Lake District. As an old man many years later he sees his vision realized. Harvey's Folly has become the exclusive Lakes hotel, where during one holiday the visitors' lives are changed dramatically. Librarian Mary Styles, ruled by her mother in her off hours, breaks away to the Lakes for Easter weekend, only to find that Gerald, the man who urged her to join him there, has kept secrets from her. But she has escaped her humdrum life, and even met a lord--and she will never be the same. The reader is captivated by the various intertwining relationships, from Alison Gray, the secretary in a doomed relationship with her married boss, to Lord Alveston, haunted by his tragic first marriage. Hylton's immensely readable style makes us care about these characters, whose first loves all seem to have gone wrong. We read on to find if they, particularly Mary, might just find love on the second try. --Holly Cooley
