Valancy Stirling is already considered an “old maid” at twenty-nine. She’s been a quiet, obedient daughter all her life, but when she receives a letter from her doctor predicting an imminent end to her life, she decides to make the most of her last year. Can she shake off her family’s controlling grip and find the life she was meant for before it’s too late?
Despite the somewhat morbid premise, this book is happy, hopeful, and fun. I love Valancy’s attitude and snarky wit. It is one of the sweetest romances I’ve read in the last year, and it’s definitely going on my list of books to read again.
