What a great book!  With characters that you just want to hug and help them with their hurting hearts.  I loved this book and while it was the first book I have read that was written by Alice J. Wisler, I know it will not be the last.

Have you ever had a dream that you have held onto so long that when it finally happens, you realize you have changed and your not sure that you can fulfill the dream or even if the dream is realistic anymore.  This is where Jackie Donovan aka "Hatteras Girl" has found herself.  Ever since she was a young girl, she has wanted nothing more than to own and run The Bailey House, which is a bed and breakfast that is on the North Carolina shore at Hatteras.  The Bailey's were a sweet elderly English couple who had run the bed and breakfast and had entertained Jackie and Minnie each day after school.  She had wonderful memories of that time and wanted to restore the house to its original glory.  But when the dream arrived, she was not sure she could make it happen. 
So much had changed in her and Minnie's lives and this was a dream they had shared.  Overtaken by grief Minnie and her young son, depend on Jackie alot. 
Will Jackie's dream come true and will she fall in love while it does?  She thinks so, but is she looking in the wrong direction for love?
This is a great book, one that you will not want to put down.  I truly enjoyed the book!  310 pages $US 14.99 4 stars.
