Sometimes the past refuses to stay in the past.
Waxwood, 1899: At the close of the nineteenth century, Vivian Alderdice is twenty-six, unmarried, and has no prospective suitors. Her brother's tragic plight the year before left the family on shaky ground with their Nob Hill friends. Their social position depends on Vivian winning the heart of a wealthy Canadian bachelor looking to become a member of their exclusive society.
Waxwood brings back memories of seven years ago when Vivian went searching for her grandmother's identity and uncovered family secrets she wasn't prepared to deal with. A young man she meets on the train rattles those skeletons out of the closet again and Vivian finds herself torn between social obligations and the chance to discover more family secrets and half-truths.
But that journey left her reeling in a purgatory of uncertainty about the future and her brother's road to maturity failed to set things right for the Alderdices. Will Vivian have the courage to discover the secrets that may destroy her family forever?

Vivian, the main character is definitely a voice of change and rebellion against the high society expectations that a young woman's sole purpose in life was to pursue and catch the best possible husband. - Amazon reader
This is a fascinating read about the challenge of being a woman who wants her freedom when societal expectations tell them that they shouldn't. - Amazon Vine Voice reader
