What a great book, this story is about an orphaned little girl, a young woman, a recluse and a woman named Hestia who reminds me of a fairy godmother. The story starts in a museum where Hestia has noticed and been watching the little girl and young woman for a while and with her insight she realises that they would be good for one another, so she takes steps to ensure they meet. Next the recluse arrives to find his ward (the little girl) who has disappeared once again to be at the museum where she feels closest to her parents and he finds her with Lisbeth ( the young woman), the attraction is instant between them and due to a lie from Aurelia, Lisbeth becomes her governess. The story then goes on to how Aurelia, Lisbeth ( who has also ran away from home) and Edmund all come back to life in a story of love and hope. Great short story, if you like historical feel good romances then this is a must
