    Marlborough, England 1804 Margaretta Fortescue arrives tired and dusty in Marlborough after 3 days of changing mail coaches to try and escape danger. She heads for a small grocer to ease her grumbling stomach, only to meet with Mrs. Lancaster who is the friendly and chatty proprietor. Little does she know she has been followed by the local solicitor, Mr. Nash Banfield who has promised to look after the elderly widow and ensure no damsels in distress or worse, take advantage of Mrs. Lancaster. However, Mrs. Lancaster has her own ideas and regularly makes herself available for helping those in need in accordance with God’s will. Nash and Margaretta each have reason to be untrusting, but over time begin to allow small chips in their armor. As the story unfolds more things to come to light and concerns for the characters grow. Mrs. Lancaster is wonderful and hopefully, we see more of her in the series. Ch. 3 “Margaretta didn’t know what to think of the way the old woman sprinkled God and the Bible into her conversation as casually as a Londoner might mention the traffic or haze. Even though she’d been attending church her entire life, Margaretta hadn’t ever thought to make Jesus quite that versatile. She’d left Him in church where He seemed to belong, but Mrs. Lancaster appeared to think He belonged everywhere.” Tea Moment: Ch. 6 “A cup of tea was pressed into her hands, and she sipped it gratefully, letting the hot liquid sooth her tight throat and settle her jumpy stomach. After half a cup, she almost felt normal again.” 5 stars. Highly recommend. © 2018 Bethany House - March 6, 2018 129 pages {10 chapters + epilogue} Thank you to Bethany House and the lovely author for a complimentary eCopy.
