A Place of Hope

This is Part 1 in the three-part Hope series.

A devastating accident is only the start of Emily Mattison's troubles ...When Emily Mattison falls victim to a near-fatal accident shortly after receiving an unexpected inheritance from a distant cousin, her ruthless nephew George seizes the opportunity to take control of his aunt's assets. It's only when Emily reaches The Drover's Hope, the former pub on the edge of the Lancashire moors, bequeathed to her by her late cousin Penelope, that she begins to feel safe. She also discovers that love can be found in the most unexpected places. But it's not so easy to escape the clutches of someone as determined as George ...


While driving over the Lancashire moors one day many years ago, I saw a former pub, nestled part way up a slope, and have never forgotten it. When I needed a setting for a new story, it popped into my mind again.

People often ask me where I get their ideas. My answer would have to be 'from everywhere'. I have a very pictorial mind and the images stick - thank goodness. It's like having a built-in picture library in my brain to draw upon. Very useful!

I hope you enjoy my tale. I certainly enjoyed writing it.
