Ein Geheimnis aus der Vergangenheit. Ein Weg in die Zukunft
Kurz vor ihrer Hochzeit fährt die New Yorker Anwältin Ellen Branford in den abgelegenen Küstenort Beacon, um den letzten Wunsch ihrer Großmutter zu erfüllen. Sie soll einen Brief überbringen und hofft, die Angelegenheit schnell erledigen zu können. Doch schon bald ahnt sie, dass sich dahinter viel mehr verbirgt. Denn inmitten von Blaubeerfeldern wartet eine alte Geschichte von Liebe und verlorenen Träumen auf Ellen die ihr zeigen wird, dass man manchmal all seine Pläne über den Haufen werfen muss, um das wahre Glück zu finden ...
Perfect for fans of Nicholas Sparks, with shades of The Notebook and Sweet Home Alabama , a deliciously irresistible summer read.
Manhattan lawyer Ellen Branford is going to fulfill her grandmother's dying wish - to find the hometown boy she once loved and give him her last letter. Beacon, Maine, home to blueberry fields and eccentric locals, is the last place she wants to go so close to her upcoming wedding. Hoping to be in and out in 24 hours, Ellen ends up the talk of the town when a tumble into the ocean introduces her to Roy Cummings, the carpenter who saves her life. Roy happens to be the nephew of Ellen's grandmother's lost love, and the one person who can bring closure to her quest. But as Ellen learns what Beacon has to offer and what her grandmother left behind, she may find that a 24 hour visit will never be enough...
