Read full description of the books:
A fairly typical effort with a heroine searching for her roots, in this case the grandparents of her ne'er do well father who abandoned his family when she was small. Anna finds herself at home at Strathallan immediately, the only problem being Calum Doig, the manager and as a cousin, the logical heir to the property.
Calum tells her he is attached and Anna assumes it is the local lady minister, Sophy and as she watches her vacillitate, Anna realises she hopes Sophy doesn't choose Calum. So it comes as a shock when she finds out Sophy is struggling with her attraction to Calum's neighbour and that his sister Victoria is the one Calum is engaged to.
It all looks totally impossible to untangle especially when Anna's father may have complicated things with another marriage and another child.
Of course it is all untangled in the end and is very sweet.

Read information about the authorEssie Summers (born Ethel Snelson Summers on July 24, 1912 in Christchurch, New Zealand - d. August 27, 1998) was a New Zealand author who wrote so vividly of the people and landscape of her native country that she was offered The Order Of the British Empire for her contributions to New Zealand tourism.
Ethel Snelson Summers was born on on July 24, 1912 to a newly-emigrated couple, Ethel Snelson and Edwin Summers, situated in Bordesley Street in Christchurch, Essie was always proud of both her British heritage and her New Zealand citizenship. Both her parents were exceptional storytellers, and this, combined with her early introduction to the Anne of Green Gables stories, engendered in her a life-long fascination with the craft of writing and the colorful legacy of pioneers everywhere.
Leaving school at 14 when her father's butcher shop experienced financial difficulties, she worked for a number of years in draper's shops and later turned her experiences to good use in writing the romantic novels for which she became famous.
She met her husband-to-be William Flett when she was only 13 years old, but it was 13 years before she consented to marry him. A minister's wife and the mother of two, William and Elizabeth, she yet found many opportunities to pen short stories, poetry and newspaper columns before embarking on her first novel, which sold to the firm of Mills & Boon in 1956.
Summers died in Taradale, Hawkes Bay on the August 27, 1998.
