CBA best-selling author Tracie Peterson-acclaimed for more than six dozen gripping novels, including the Alaskan Quest finale Whispers of Winter-launches the first installment in a series that stars winsome, independent heroines. Featuring non-stop adventure, endearing characters, and surprising twists, this compelling tale of wholesome love transports listeners to the opulence and privation of 1852 Philadelphia. Charming young socialite Mia Stanley has a knack for matchmaking-and for sticking her affluent little nose into trouble. Much to the dismay of her proper parents and their highfalutin friends, she also writes for Goodey's Lady Book magazine. When her writing draws Mia into the seamy world of the downtrodden, she uncovers shocking secrets that threaten her safety. But as Cupid's arrow tugs her heart in an unexpected direction, she fears her reckless independence may have dashed all hope for true love.
