The Restoration Trilogy book 1
by Denise Weimer
-From the back cover-
In Denise Weimer's second Canterbury House series, a heart-warming cast of modern characters restoring three separate buildings, a doctor's house, apothecary shop and a log cabin, uncover the secrets of three women, victims of circumstance and unforgiving times, whose past ijustices have affected future generations. As the buildings are restored in White, Widow and Witch, so are the hearts of the main characters.
In White: The Restoration Trilogy, Book One, as historic preservationist Jennifer and brooding bachelor Michael restore his ancestors' historic doctor's residence in a rural Georgia community, they uncover the 1920's-era prejudice and secrets that caused Michael's branch to fall off the family tree. Jennifer is determined to fulfill her first professional position with integrity even if her employer lacks a proper appreciation of history. Farm more challenging – and sinister – than the social landscape of Hermon are the strange accidents hinting that someone doesn't want them on the Dunham property. Yet Michael's and Jennifer's own pasts pose the biggest obstacles to laying a fresh foundation of family and community.
I am totally hooked on this series!
I think I just fell in love with a new book, with a new series, with a new-to-me author. When the opportunity arose to read White I jumped at the chance. You see, the words 'historic preservationist' had me hook, line, and sinker. I fell in love with history as a very young child but it's only been in recent years that I've been able to channel that enthusiasm into volunteer work at my local museum and soaking up every bit of knowledge that I can. This book was such a delight for this history buff to read. I devoured each page and I just couldn't seem to put it down. Denise Weimer definitely has a new fan!
