The Restoration Trilogy book 2
by Denise Weimer
Jennifer Rushmore has overseen the restoration of brooding bachelor Michael’s ancestors’ doctor’s house long enough to work through their initial differences. They’ve begun applying the lessons of family and community learned from the past. Now the apothecary shop discloses a heart-breaking tale circa 1870 Georgia, shaking loose Jennifer’s own carefully suppressed past. She fears that when Michael sees beyond her facade, her tentative steps toward trust and love may disintegrate into rubble. On her journey to forgiveness, Jennifer draws on her new faith and friendships, even as the mysterious accidents clouding her first preservation job escalate into imminent danger.
Past and present merge...
Anyone that knows me will tell you right off that I LOVE history, even those dry and boring dates in dusty old books. They'd also probably warn you that I get a little bit too enthusiastic about my volunteer work in my local museum. Those two things are what first drew to me to Denise Weimer's latest series called The Restoration Trilogy. Well, more like got me hooked before I even read the first one. And believe me, when I did read them I enjoyed Widow just as much as I did the first book.
This Book received a 4.5 Bark rating.
I loved learning about Georgia history, historical architecture, all of the fascinating references to historical herbs and medicines, and especially the way Denise Weimer so quickly re-immersed me into the Jennifer’s world. Widow is by no means a dry book filled with nothing but historical details, it is a rich and lovely story. A story that I truly enjoyed from page one to the very last. The only problem? I have to wait impatiently for the final book in the series. Very, VERY impatiently wait...
