From Publishers Weekly A quiet, sentimental romance with a pace to match its smalltown setting finds its eponymous heroine looking for stability in Moose River Junction after a lifetime of traveling from place to place in her mother's wake. Sabine Heartwood is happy in her newly settled life until her flighty mother, Madame Ruby, starts proclaiming visions of a coming upheaval. Meanwhile, Danford Smith has returned from New York City to nurse his ailing grandmother through her final days and set his family's affairs in order before returning to a promising career as a filmmaker. Of course life has other plans, and Dan finds himself mired in the quicksand of family loyalties and new obligations. As his long-distance relationship with rising starlet Karen Whitcomb unravels, Dan is increasingly drawn to the lovely and forthright Sabine, who seems to understand something about him that he himself does not. As for Sabine, the psychic gift she has long rejected awakens, intimating dark secrets in Dan's past and that of Moose River. While the protagonists' developing romance is hardly a surprise, it is handled with a light touch. There are many other threads explored and the result is a beguiling bit of storytelling with a bustling, likable cast an enjoyable if not exactly thrilling read. Wilson (Hawke's Cove) is making a career out of chamomile tea novels, and those who have enjoyed her past efforts will not be disappointed.

From Library Journal Drawn back to Moose River Junction by the illness and subsequent death of his grandmother, up-and-coming film director Danforth Smith is torn between resuming his high-profile career complete with starlet girlfriend and staying in town to rescue the family theatre, care for his developmentally challenged uncle, and explore his growing feelings for reluctant psychic Sabine Heartwood. A vagabond heroine who has finally found a home, a responsible hero plagued by long-standing guilt, and a colorful cast of characters (including a flamboyant, fortune-telling mother and a pair of restless spirits with a tragic story to tell) blend beautifully in this well-written, multilayered contemporary romance, which gently and insightfully explores the many levels of love. It will appeal to readers of both romance (especially those with a paranormal twist) and women's romantic fiction. Wilson (Cameo Lake) lives on Martha's Vineyard, MA.
