A grandmother has an intuition that she is going to be seeing more of three of her four granddaughters soon. She’s happy about this because she loves them all dearly and will be grateful for the help running her bed and breakfast establishment.
Meanwhile, her three granddaughters are each experiencing major interruptions to their current lives. As these changes unfold, each comes to the conclusion that a visit to Gran’s bed and breakfast will be useful in managing the current crisis each is struggling through.
Gran’s bed and breakfast is by the lovely Emerald Beach on Orchid Island, just off the coast of Rhode Island. The building is a Victorian mansion and has a renovated barn where people can stay as well. There’s lots to do there and it’s not too far away from a picturesque town.
The story is about the granddaughters' challenges in reconnecting with each other and themselves. It’s a wonderful read about the kind of hazards that life is filled with and the growth that comes when one faces the issues instead of burying them.
The characters draw you into their lives. They are complex and interesting. They have shortcomings, just like all of us. I found it to be a very satisfying read.
The ending just begs for further stories related to this group. I would have been delighted to have just kept reading.
