The Problem with Zucchini Bread is...

What am I reading now? Lady of Milkweed Manor (Julie Klassen)

Annnd . . . what do I think so far? This is another book by an author I can always count on to have a great story, interesting characters, and enjoyable twists in the plot for a very satisfying read.

As Charlotte drew closer to the looming grey edifice that was to become her temporary home, she could not help but notice the secretive shuttered windows. Then she noticed the milkweeds...

Even a proper vicar's daughter can make a mistake—and now Charlotte Lamb must pay a high price for her fall. To avoid the prying eyes of all who know her, she hides herself away in London's forbidding "Milkweed Manor," a place of mystery and lore, of old secrets and new birth. 

But once there, she comes face to face with a suitor from her past—a man who now hides secrets of his own. Both are determined, with God's help, to protect those they love. But neither can imagine the depth of sacrifice that will be required.
