Summary
"Lux is a single mom struggling to make her way in the world when she stumbles across an idyllic town in the Sonoma valley where she feels instantly at home. It seems like a place from another time--until she realizes it actually is. One night in 1906, an earthquake left Greengage stuck in the past. Lux must keep one foot in her world, raising her son as well as she can with the odds stacked against her, but every day she is more strongly drawn in by the sweet simplicity of life in Greengage, and by the irresistible connection she feels with a man born decades before her time. Soon she finds herself torn between her ties to the modern world-- her adored son--and the first place she has ever felt truly at home."--
Summary
Stumbling across an idyllic community in the Sonoma valley that is astonishingly stuck in the first decade of the 20th century, single mom Lux struggles to balance the cultural differences of the present-day world where she is raising her son with the generations-older lifestyle of a man to whom she is drawn
