A Final Gift: A Tale From Blythe Cove Manor # 2 by Lorraine Bartlett Jenny is spending the weekend at Blythe Cove Manor alone, a trip she was supposed to have taken with her mother. Sadly Jenny’s mother passed away suddenly two months earlier. When Jenny arrives she finds out this weekend is a girls only weekend at Blythe Cove Manor. Will this Jenny spend the weekend alone grieving or will she this trip help her heart start to heal. This is a very heartwarming short story about the loss of a parent and the healing power of friendship. I really love this story, author Lorraine Bartlett paints a wonderful picture of love with her words. I love how even though these women were strangers to Jenny they came together to help cheer Jenny up and make her a little less lonely. I highly recommend this book.
Jenny, alone and lonely, comes to Blythe Cove Manor, expecting to have a sad weekend without her mother. By end of her stay she learns that gifts come in all sizes, shapes, and forms. I felt like I was there with the guests. The author was excellent with description and storytelling. I am looking forward to her next stories and books.
A Final Gift is a short story from the Blythe Cove Manor series. I was quickly drawn into this tale of a young woman in her early twenties who decides to take the vacation her mother had planned for the two of them even though her mother has since passed on, quite unexpectedly. This trip is an emotional journey for her, but she soon finds herself surrounded by a variety of interesting and lively women staying at the manor, making it impossible for her to retreat and hide in her pain. It's a heartwarming tale of living through our grief and keeping ourselves open to new possibilities. I look forward to reading more in this series about this charming little place and the people who visit.
It is very difficult to lose a loved one and maybe even more so when it’s unexpected. Many have said that can be a blessing and yet Jenny Taylor might not agree with you. She and her mother; Caroline, were planning a weekend away to a relaxing Bed and Breakfast on Martha’s Vineyard, Mass. Several months after her mother’s passing, Jenny finds herself arriving at the B&B; although she didn’t want to come, her best friend Missy insisted. Everything made Jenny feel out of sorts and yet she tried to put herself out there. Her first encounter is a couple of older ladies; Lavinia and Maude, who in time help Jenny relax. Later she meets the “sorority sisters”; Pam, Lisa, Amy and Tracy. Jenny, who doesn’t have many friends, realizes that she has missed out some things in life. Signs from her mom help Jenny see her life in a more positive way. The new friendships made during that trip were a blessing in the end. Very well written and a MUST Read!!!
With the passing of her mother, Jenny Taylor feels lost and alone, missing that closeness they shared. Knowing her mother was looking forward to this weekend together at Blythe Cove Manor, Jenny decides to go alone in her memory. Can the beauty and magic of this weekend bring Jenny peace? This short story reminds us of the healing power of friendship and the inherent good in others. Blythe Cove is definitely a treat for one's soul.
