 Author Excerpt

The charm of the South drew her back to her family’s roots. But when the town’s old resentments turn the sweet tea bitter, can Tish find a welcome anywhere?
Leaving frosty Michigan for the Deep South was never a blip in the simple plans Tish McComb imagined for her life, dreams of marriage and family that were dashed five years earlier in a tragic accident. Now an opportunity to buy her great-great-great-grandparents’ Civil War era home beckons Tish to Noble, Alabama, a Southern town in every sense of the word. She wonders if God has given her a new dream—the old house filled with friends, her vintage percolator bubbling on the sideboard.
When Tish discovers that McCombs aren’t welcome in town, she feels like a Yankee behind enemy lines. Only local antiques dealer George Zorbas seems willing to give her a chance. What’s a lonely outcast to do but take in Noble’s resident prodigal, Melanie Hamilton, and hope that the two can find some much needed acceptance in each other.
Problem is, old habits die hard, and Mel is quite set in her destructive ways. With Melanie blocked from going home by her influential father, Tish must try to manage her incorrigible houseguest as she attempts to prove her own worth in a town that seems to have forgotten that every sinner needs God-given mercy, love and forgiveness.

My Review:


When Tish decided to make a bold move south to her ancestors home, she never expected to encounter the obstacles that she was immediate faced with. Job searching, picking up an unexpected responsibility, and learning how sometimes people just don't feel the same about things as you do. Somehow through a few new friends, faith, trust, and keeping her head up high, Tish hurled those obstacles and comes out winning!!!This book shows how much trust and faith can be spread from one person to then next prove to pay off in the end.

.Meg Moseley is a very strong writer. Her story is inspiring and heartfelt. I look forward to reading many more writings by Moseley.
