Ellie Kilmer is a spinster with no money and a plain countenance. Her only hope for supporting herself is to serve as a housekeeper on Dillon Island for widower Jackson, a widower with young boys. Jackson makes a marriage proposal to Ellie, but it will be in name only and he’s mainly after a cook and caregiver. The more Ellie gets to know Jackson the more she learns about his troubled first marriage and the other women he still carries a torch for. Ellie is a sympathetic character and I felt for her and for the rejection she experiences by Jackson’s boy. It’s good story. I give it four out of five stars.
