The Spirit of CovingtonLarge Print - 2004
In the wake of a devastating fire, Covington's sixty-something trio, Grace, Hannah, and Amelia must rebuild the beloved farmhouse that provided a renewal of spirit for them. As the trio struggles with the impact of their loss, their friend Max receives a heartbreaking blow when his son renounces his inheritance. To avoid paying taxes, Max proposes a marriage of convenience to Hannah. Meanwhile, as Grace contends with her companion's slow recovery from a heart attack, Lucy, the girl Grace tutors, shows up on her doorstep after running away from a dangerous foster home. A soul-searching portrait of the power of female friendship and the endurance of love, The Spirit of Covington is vintage Medlicott: engaging, heart-tugging, and unfailingly true-to-life.
