Description

  • Used Book in Good Condition
  • She's plain, practical. No stunning Southern beauty. And she never wears pink...Eleanor Braddock, a spinster at 30, has
    long since dismissed any hope of marriage. But when a dying soldier whispers his final words, she believes her life can
    still have meaning and determines to find his widow. But this compassionate deed takes a harsh turn, and Eleanor finds
    herself dependent upon the richest woman in America and the most despised woman in Nashville--her aunt, Adelicia Acklen,
    mistress of Belmont Mansion. A clandestine act of kindness leads Eleanor to an unlikely path for her life--building an
    orphanage, a place that will house widows and orphans from the Civil War. And while Eleanor knows her own heart, she
    also knows her aunt will never approve.Marcus von Quint, Archduke of the House of Habsburg and fourth in line to the
    Austrian throne, arrives in Nashville in search of a life he determines, instead of one determined for him.
    Collaborating with botanist Luther Burbank, Marcus seeks to combine his own passion for nature with his expertise in
    architecture. But his plans to incorporate natural beauty into the design of the orphanage run contrary to the wishes of
    practical, frugal Eleanor, who sees his ideas as costly nonsense.
