Laurel Wreath and Aspen Gold Award winner Delia Parr is acclaimed for her inspiring historical romances. Living in an 1840s Erie Canal town in upstate New York, Emma Garrett-the genteel proprietor of a bustling boarding house-learns to trust in God despite trying circumstances. A widow with family far away, 51-year-old Emma 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 which soon looms over Emma's future.
