Reading this book reminded me of sitting before a fire wrapped in a robe, drinking a glass of wine and eating popcorn. It was easy and sweet. If you like romance, coincidences, travel, and robins–you will like this book.

Maya had been a resident in a hospital in New York when one of her patients died and she was blamed. She ran away and eventually found herself in Edinburgh, where a ring in an antique store called to her. The ring took her to Paris and Bern, where she explored the ring’s history. That history involved medicine, women’s rights, and even the Russian Revolution. It’s a far-ranging story that moves back and forth between the present time and a hundred years in the past.

Sweet. Pleasant. An antidote to the stresses of present-day living.
