After the death of her beloved Aunt Ellie, Margaret Yearwood discovers a hidden bundle of love letters addressed to her aunt. At least Margaret and her sister Norah thought she was their aunt. The letters, however, reveal a shocking secret: that Ellie, a footloose woman with an insatiable wanderlust, was actually their biological mother--and the parents who raised them were their aunt and uncle. But who was their father? The love letters are signed "Love, Fred Astaire," and the only return addresses are hotels and postmarks from all over the world.
Margaret takes it in stride--she is finally marrying her longtime love, Owen Garrett, and heading off on a romantic honeymoon in Australia, leaving Norah in charge of the house, the animals, and the garden. Norah, just coming out of a love affair with a married man that cost her a job and her reputation, is desperately lonely and brimming with jealousy over her sister's happiness. So she turns her focus to another relationship--the one between her newly discovered mother and mysterious father. Full of secrets and romance and intrigue, Love, Fred Astaire is a story about sisters, about what makes us who we are.
