All Sarah Tyson has ever wanted is a place she could call home. The orphaned daughter of diplomats, she longs for the sweet simplicity of a house and garden. When retired professor Peter Lanford hires her to be his part-time housekeeper, she feels she has finally found what she has long been looking for. But the joy of creating a home and befriending lonely Peter is marred by the gossip and speculation rife in the idyllic Gloucestershire village… gossip that winds its way into Peter and Sarah’s lives—and into their hearts. Soon Sarah’s friendship with Peter has become a village affair, and it threatens to ruin everything she holds dear.
A short novella from USA Today bestselling author Katharine Swartz, who also writes as Kate Hewitt.
