Overview

History (noun) - A narrative of events, story.

Jillian Garrett is passionate about historic preservation, but after ten years at the Wetherton Historical Foundation, in tiny Wetherton, Connecticut, her zeal has lost its zing. Is it the quirky New Englanders, small town life, the endless need for fundraising or the lack of eligible men?

Her bags are almost packed when she "meets" Lady Jane Rochester. Can an octogenarian aristocrat reignite Jillian's spirit and help her solve a centuries-old mystery about the town's greatest patriot? Perhaps. Because Lady Jane has just purchased her first computer and a world of Internet possibilities is at her fingertips. But is the world ready for Lady Jane?

Wetherton is a delightful twist on friendship, on the notion that history is set in stone, and the reality that two people can always look at exactly the same thing and see something entirely different.

Meet the Author

Laurie has visited Colonial Williamsburg at least 30 times, and has been a docent for school tours at her local historical society for many years - yes, she even dresses up in period costumes, and yes, she's a little crazy about American history. Which is why her books always include snippets of historical fact mixed within her storylines.Her writing has been described as "delightfully entertaining" by Publishers Weekly, and she strives to create stories that are a pleasant diversion from day-to-day life.Subscribing to the thought that good writers are good readers, Laurie tries to read a book every week. Some of her favorite authors are Phillipa Gregory, Kate Grenville, Robert Hicks, and Anne Tyler, but her all-time favorite is Straight Man by Richard Russo.When she is not writing, she is busy raising her two daughters, gardening and sewing. Born and raised in upstate New York, she has lived in Manhattan, Tokyo and London, but has called Connecticut her home for the past 20 years.Laurie's first book, Wetherton, was inspired by the very definition of history - a narrative of events. Her second book, The Half-Life Party, was inspired by her own ghost experience while staying in Colonial Williamsburg. She is currently writing her third book, which she hopes to publish by December 2013.

    This book made me feel happy. I loved the characters, especially Lady Jane, and I loved the plot twists. If there really was a Wetherton, I would want to visit!

    Enjoyable, quick read

    Light, fun read with believable and quirky characters. A little superficial, but nothing egregious. I liked the switching between two stories that were intertwined.

    I'm sure some would like this book, however, I found it so very boring. I can't imagine what into age/mindset it would fit.
