Description :  "Élünk és szeretünk. Lehetőséget kapunk arra, hogy ajtókat nyissunk ki vagy csukjunk be. Ez minden, amink van, és ez elég is." Eleanor Murray soha nem felejti el Edisto Islanden töltött gyermekkorát, amikor édesapja még élt, és osztozott vele zene iránti szenvedélyében. Mostanra azonban minden boldog emléket elhalványít a bűntudat. Eleanor magát okolja, amiért nővére tolószékbe kényszerült, és mintha ez még nem lenne elég: szerelmes nővére férjébe is. Hogy a családot anyagilag segítse, Eleanor nappal egy charlestoni befektetési cégnél dolgozik, esténként pedig a zenélésbe menekül, és a közeli bárban zongorázik. Egészen addig, amíg a főnöke új lehetőséget nem kínál neki: idősödő nagynénjét, Helenát kellene gondoznia Edisto Islanden. Eleanor tehát lehetőséget kap, hogy visszatérjen oda, ahol élete legboldogabb időszakát töltötte, és osztozzon a zene iránti szeretetben a gyászoló Helenával, aki nemrégiben, rejtélyes körülmények között veszítette el húgát. Helena és a nővére a háború sújtotta Magyarországról menekült el 1944-ben, és a békés szigeten leltek menedéket. Ahogy az idős asszony és Eleanor összebarátkozik, mind több titokra derül fény a régmúltból, s ez mindkettejüknek segíthet abban, hogy végre szembe tudjanak nézni a fájó emlékekkel, s lezárják, amit le kell zárni... Magával ragadó történet a múltbéli titkok bénító és a megbocsátás felemelő erejéről. Karen White a New York Times bestseller szerzője. Már iskoláskorában író szeretett volna lenni, vagy Scarlet O'Hara az Elfújta a szélből.

Dziewczyna pogrąża się w apatii i – nie wiedząc, co dalej robić ze swoim życiem – przeprowadza do domu swoich dziadków w Savannah, w którym, po utracie rodziców, upłynęło jej dzieciństwo. Mija sześć lat. Cierpiąca na alzheimera babcia Annabelle kończy życie w domu opieki. Dziadek umiera, pozostawiając Piper w spadku dom i kilka zagadkowych przedmiotów – złoty wisiorek, duży srebrny klucz, nieodebrane przez adresatkę listy pisane przez Annabelle do jej przyjaciółki Lillian. Do tej pory Piper uważała, że życie jej babki było mało interesujące, wręcz nudne. Teraz, zaintrygowana zagadkową spuścizną, postanawia wyjaśnić tajemnicę, wokół której przez lata panowała zmowa milczenia. Przeszukuje dom. Na poddaszu odkrywa zakamuflowane pomieszczenie oraz ukryty w kufrze sweterek dziecięcy. W metalowym pudełku zakopanym kiedyś przez dziadka w ogrodzie znajduje kartki z pamiątkowego albumu, starą fotografię przedstawiającą trzy młode dziewczyny oraz wycinek z gazety z 1939 roku mówiący o wyłowieniu z rzeki zwłok niezidentyfikowanego niemowlęcia. Piper odnajduje Lillian, żeby z nią porozmawiać o Annabelle, ale 90-letnia&#xa0; kobieta kategorycznie odrzuca prośbę o spotkanie. Dziewczynie pozostaje tylko jedno – pod przybranym nazwiskiem i pretekstem rzekomych badań genealogicznych wynajmuje domek na terenie posiadłości Lillian i nawiązuje kontakt z domownikami. Jak zakończy się jej prywatne śledztwo? Czy poznanie strasznej prawdy pozwoli Piper ostatecznie pogrzebać przeszłość i otworzyć się na miłość?

Description :  Gyönyörűen megírt lírai történet, mely magával sodor, mint a dagály hullámzása. A húszéves Cassie Madison elhagyja szülővárosát, a Georgia állambeli Waltont, és soha többé nem akar visszatérni. Ám amikor egy családi tragédia hazaszólítja, szakítania kell New York-i életével, hogy szembenézzen mindazzal, amit egykor maga mögött hagyott... Cassie mindent elkövet annak érdekében, hogy új életet kezdjen New Yorkban: beleveti magát a munkába, és levetkőzi déli akcentusát. Ám egy késő éjszakai telefonhívás felszínre hozza mindazt, amit megpróbált elfelejteni. Nem beszélt a húgával, Harriettel, amióta a testvére elcsábította a vőlegényét, és hozzáment feleségül. Most azonban Harriet azzal a hírrel jelentkezik, hogy az apjuk haldoklik. Cassie hazaindul, és az egyetlen dolog, amely még az édesapja halálánál is jobban megrémiszti, a találkozás Harriettel és a családjával, amely akár az övé is lehetne. Ám képtelen ellenállni az unokahúgai és az unokaöccse szeretetének, ahogy annak is, hogy otthonának tekintse a városkát, ahol az emberek egymás hogyléte felől érdeklődnek, és a kérdésükre valóban őszinte választ várnak. Miközben meg kell küzdenie egy elfelejtett baráthoz fűződő egyre meglepőbb kapcsolatával és a családot fenyegető tragédiával, Cassie rádöbben: önmagunk elől nem menekülhetünk el, és az otthonunkat nem törölhetjük ki a szívünkből.

Senior rodu, August Pratt, oszukał projektanta, nie zapłacił mu za pracę, czym zrujnował architekta i doprowadził do samobójstwa. Olive postanawia zatrudnić się w domu Prattów jako pokojówka, by zdobyć dokumenty, które pozwolą jej udowodnić, że jej ojciec został oszukany i wykorzystany.<br />Rok 1920. Lucy Young to młoda sekretarka w biurze Cromwell, Polk &amp; Moore. Nieprzypadkowo zatrudniła się właśnie w tej firmie.
