Count your nights by stars, not shadows. Count your life with smiles, not tears.

1961. After a longtime resident at Nashville’s historic Maxwell House Hotel suffers a debilitating stroke, Audrey Whitfield is tasked with cleaning out the reclusive woman’s room. There, she discovers an elaborate scrapbook filled with memorabilia from the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Love notes on the backs of unmailed postcards inside capture Audrey’s imagination with hints of a forbidden romance . . . and troubling revelations about the disappearance of young women at the exposition. Audrey enlists the help of a handsome hotel guest as she tracks down clues and information about the mysterious “Peaches” and her regrets over one fateful day, nearly sixty-five years earlier.

Count The Nights by Stars
What an unexpected pleasure this story was. I have always said I am not “into” romance novels. So, I was unsure as I started this novel as I began to realize there was likely going to be not one romance, but two, since it is a dual time story. BUT, the romance was not your typical fluff story, it was more love, and a depth to the characters that made the love story aspect fade beneath the rich painted pictures of both of the time periods, and the situations. I listened to an audio version that was so well done.
I really enjoyed the depth the author went to describing both the evils of prostitution and the fact that there were also good people who recognized the need to serve girls lured into this downfall. I also appreciated the aspect of the sacrifice and compassion needed when a child is mentally handicapped. So yes, the love and romantic aspects were there, but tempered by a beautiful story.
It was so good that within hours after finishing I had downloaded Under the Tulip Tree, also by Michelle. I am tickled when I find an author that makes me want my next read to be another novel they have written.
