Historical | Fiction

Inside the glass orb was a miniature garden and a house. If she stared long enough, she could almost see the people inside. But whether they were trapped there, or kept safe, in that miniscule snowbound world, she couldn't have said...

Christmas 1926 holds bright promise for nineteen-year-old Daisy Forbes, with celebrations under way at Eden Hall, her family's country estate in Surrey, England. But when Daisy, the youngest of three daughters, discovers that her adored father, Howard, has been leading a double life, her illusions of perfection are shattered. Worse, his current mistress, introduced as a family friend, is joining them for the holidays. As Daisy wrestles with the truth, she blossoms in her own right, receiving a marriage proposal from one man, a declaration of love from another, and her first kiss from a third. Meanwhile, her mother, Mabel, manages these social complications with outward calm, while privately reviewing her life and contemplating significant changes. And among those below stairs, Nancy, the housekeeper, and Mrs. Jessops, the cook, find that their long-held secrets are slowly beginning to surface...

As the seasons unfold in the new year, and Daisy moves to London, desires, fortunes, and loyalties will shift during this tumultuous time after the Great War. The Forbes family and those who serve them will follow their hearts down unexpected paths that always return to where they began...Eden Hall.

Re: The Snow Globe

THE SNOW GLOBE sounds really interesting... thanks for sharing a bit about it! Congrats on its release!

Historical fiction are my favorites. When you add books
about England to the mix, you have my complete attention!!
To add the era of the 20's to the equation, I'm in complete
bliss!! After reading the synopsis, I was beside myself
that I didn't have a copy of your book in my hands, to start
reading your book immediately, because your book is exactly
what I'm looking for!! I also adore snow globes, and own a
couple, in my ecclactic mix of collectibles. For now, I can
only put your book on my TBR list, and hope to read it in
the very near future - like when I finish with a couple of
books that I really want to read for similar reasons. They
spoke volumes to me, as this book does. Congratulations on
what I'm sure is a book that will do very well!!

This sounds like a very interesting read. I love historical and/or period books. The title is enticing, and what I have read so far has caught my attention. I believe it is a book that I won't want to put down once I pick it up.
