Rosie Hopkins's life is...comfortable. She has a steady nursing job, a nice apartment, and Gerard, her loyal (if a bit boring) boyfriend. And even though she might like to pursue a more rewarding career, and Gerard doesn't seem to have any plans to propose, Rosie's not complaining. Things could be worse. Right? Life gets a bit more interesting when Rosie's mother sends her out to the country to care for her ailing great aunt Lilian, who owns an old-fashioned sweetshop. But as Rosie gets Lillian back on her feet, breathes new life into the candy shop, and gets to know the mysterious and solitary Stephen--whose family seems to own the entire town--she starts to think that settling for what's comfortable might not be so great after all -- Unedited summary from the book.

You have to pay attention to light, hard-to-read years stuck at the beginning of some sections of the story because some of the story is set during WW2 and the rest is set in 2012. I did quite like the stories once I figured out what year I was in. Rosie and her great aunt Lillian are more alike than they would admit. It was lovely watching/reading about Rosie's metamorphosis from pale, rushed city woman to blooming, ever-independent country town woman. Great story!
