Book one of The Gresham Chronicles takes you to an 1860s English village, where you'll meet recently bereaved Julia Hollis. Left with only her husband's debts and the memory of the fortune she once had, Julia must find a way to provide for her children. The only material thing she has left is The Larkspur, an abandoned coaching inn in the quaint village of Gresham. Used to being waited on, serving others comes as quite a shock and hardship for Julia, but with the help of the town's new vicar, it just might happen. But will a behind-the-scenes scheme jeopardize everything? Lawana Blackwell, paperback, 432 pages.
