When genealogist Torie O'Shea gets an invitation from her favorite aunt, Sissy, to come and spend some time with her in Minnesota she jumps at the chance. When she arrives, however, Torie finds out that the invitation was not so innocent:  Sissy has uncovered a 150-year-old diary in the attic of her home and is dying to find out who wrote it and where it came from. Torie dives in and soon discovers that the author of the diary, a young Swedish woman, had fallen in love with a man she couldn't have. When the diary ends with hints of brutal violence, Torie becomes enmeshed in a mystery passed down through generations. Fans of Rett MacPherson's cozy genealogy mysteries will delight in the inventive plot and comfortable, warm characters that have come to characterize this wonderful series.
