The Dowry of Miss Lydia Clark
Book 3 of the Gresham Chronicles. Set in the 1800’s England.
She thought it was too late…that love had passed her by.
Gresham is alive with the vibrant colors of spring! Love is in full bloom at St. Judes’s vicarage where Andrew and Julia Phelps are enjoying married life with their newly blended family. Their days are full as they follow the surprising twists and turns in the lives of the village residents.
Schoolmistress Lydia Clark has resigned herself to a lonely life without romance when suddenly two eligible men begin to court her. But as she considers their offers, she discovers her heart is drawn to another man, bashful Jacob Pitney, who, unfortunately, has set his cap for someone else.
Shunned by her family in London, Noelle Somerville arrives at the Larkspur Inn under a false identity and with a broken heart. A humbling series of events, along with a budding romance she never dreamed possible, compel her to face the dark secrets surrounding her hidden pain.
