Teacups and Lies

First novel of the Spencer's Mill series!

Susannah Reese is a wife and mother in 1886, with three young children still living at home. Her beloved husband dies unexpectedly, leaving her with no provider. She must navigate this crisis, overcoming the laws and customs of the time, which make life overwhelming for a widow with her responsibilities. Just when she thinks she has found a way through -- and a new friend -- she is sabotaged by gossip and lies from an unexpected source. TEACUPS AND LIES is a story of God’s strength, faithfulness, and provision in desperate times. It is about coping with grief, the destructive power of gossip, the triumph of love, and the power of family.

This book was so well written that I became part of the story. I can't wait until her next book. I bought a copy for my daughter and I will gift it to her with a teacup and saucer.

Teacups and Lies was a page turner full of emotional twists and intrigue...I wanted the story to continue to see what was going to happen in the lives of the characters later on. Hopefully, she will write a sequel.
