A charming, delightful book I found the dialogue a little stilted, but then considered that was probably a reflection of the way they spoke back then The story of Annie s life, and then of Henry s search to discover the truth years later, really gripped me I found the big reveal a little too abrupt, but the way it worked out afterwards was really heart warming Highly recommended.
