In the early 19th century, Emma, a 51-year-old widow with family far away, fills her loneliness by caring for her guests and sharing her own special blend of wisdom and humor. One stormy night, a rap at her door interrupts her musings. The 80-year-old Widow Leonard is standing in the rain, seeking refuge from her sons' constant bickering. Housing this feisty runaway granny, however, puts Emma in the crosshairs of a family feud. But this crisis is more easily resolved than the one that soon looms over Emma's future.More
"With colorful, lively characters, this story weaves in humor, friendship and faith to create a gentle retreat from our bustling world. Quietly told, this story is best for those looking for a calm book with little action, but big in heart. A Hearth in Candlewood is the first installment in the inspirational Candlewood Trilogy." (Historical Novels Review)
