I almost gave this one 5 stars. I didn't because it is rare that I am "amazed" by a book. But this one came close to that description. A 30 something young woman with 3 children finds herself suddenly widowed and without financial resources except that of an abandoned village inn in Victorian England. Julia Hollis is a woman of great faith. She puts her life and that of her children into God's hands and goes forward in her life to new challenges and new experiences in a country village filled with delightful people of faith and fortitude. She develops a soul-mate friendship with her Irish housekeeper and makes friends with lodgers and neighbors alike who bless her life. I agree whole-heartedly with the blurb on the back of the book which reads: "Make plans to stay awhile in Gresham, and you're sure to be charmed by its beauty and caught up in the lives and romance of its residents".
