Emma's first thought is to clean the place up and sell as quickly as possible. However once she starts going through her Grandmother's old papers and photos she uncovers many things she never knew about Beattie's life and the huge struggles she overcame to succeed in life - a success that allowed Emma to live a life of privilege.
Although Emma is not an overly likeable character due to her self absorption, she did grow on me as the story progressed. I could understand how bereft she must feel at saying goodbye to the thing she was most passionate about and enjoyed how her character developed through the lessons Beattie provided via her personal effects.
As always Kimberley Freeman has written an enjoyable and compelling novel that kept me engaged on both threads of the storyline from beginning to end.
