When high school English teacher Cassandra Reilly is laid off, she takes a poorly paying part-time job at a local nursing home to make ends meet. Her employment problems may be solved when one of her patients passes away after naming her in his will as the director of a new literary research center. But Cassie isn’t certain she can handle the position, and her doubts increase when she receives a threat against her life.
The lawyer who handles the will proves to be a source of support and comfort, and Cassie hopes their friendship will deepen into love. As the danger increases and Cassie faces her doubts about her own abilities, she begins to develop a new strength of character that will help her achieve her life’s goals.
Cassie is an out of work English teacher. She has taken a temporary job in a nursing home. When one of her residents passes away it changes her life drastically.
I enjoyed many aspects of this read. I especially loved the references to wonderful classics. Great Expectations, Oliver Twist just to name a few. Cassie is a great female lead. She is down on her luck but manages to overcome many obstacles. Her success is hard won which makes her such a strong, outstanding woman! I love strong female characters!
This is a good tale with a winding path. However, it is overly dramatic in places and the conversations are a little stilted. This really does not detract from the story. The novel moves quickly and entertaining till the end.
