I loved this book! It's very long but for it keeps your attention to the very last page. The story centers around the life of 17-year-old Molly Gibson, the only daughter of a widower/country doctor. Many changes come upon Molly and her "normal" life: A new mother and step sister, secrets, gossip, and unbeknownst love. If you like this book, you'll enjoy the movie adaption as well starring Junstine Waddell.
