The engaging village of Candlewood in 1840s New York provides a glimpse into the past that will inspire and uplift today's readers. Fifty-one-year-old Emma Garrett runs Hill House, a boardinghouse on a hill at the edge of town. Emma ministers to her guests, both the transient and those who call Hill House home. Gifted with an uncanny ability to see the unique strengths of her guests, Emma serves and challenges them with homespun wisdom and absolute faith in God. When eighty-year-old Widow Leonard shows up at Hill House to escape a heated land dispute between her two sons, Emma welcomes her and tries to help her heal the family feud. But tragedy soon hits closer to home when Emma's very ownership of Hill House is called into question!

Enjoyed this book a lot. It has mystery to keep you engaged, has lovely characters and I look forward to finishing the series.
I usually read mysteryactionpolitical thrillers by David Baldacci and John Grisham, but I found this to be a very pleasent book to read. It goes to the heart of being a "servant" and having a solid faith and trust in God that will see you through any situation. I liked the good use of humour throughout the book. I would have liked to see the ownership of Hill House resolved but I guess I will have to wait and read the other two books in the series to find out who the mystery owner is. Thanks.
