Here is the tale of three women from different stations in life. The challenges they face in life in the Victorian era are not so different from women today who also seek love and fulfillment in their lives.

Narrated by a ghost in the first chapter, the story has elements of both mystery and suspense. The author interviewed older residents and did research to try to get in touch with the essence of that time which gives an authenticity to the writing. This book also abounds with descriptions of everyday life and gives the sensation of going back in a time machine.
