Before Summer’s End

Home should be the place you run to for shelter from the world, but what if the family members who should love and protect you are the ones who have hurt you the most?

An unexpected inheritance unlocks secrets from the past.

Jack Lancaster. A name Ellen Oakley has never heard before, and yet the old man has left Ellen an English seaside cottage in his will.

With a catastrophic year behind her—a broken engagement, the sudden death of her father, and more recently, lay-offs at work, she being one of the casualties—the only thing standing in Ellen’s way of flying to England to claim her inheritance and make a fresh start, is Lillian Oakley, her mother.

It takes some convincing, but Ellen manages to get her mom to agree to accompany her to England for a time. As the quaint English cottage on the Norfolk shores offers up its ghosts and skeletons in the closet, one woman finds closure, the other a new beginning.
