Jane has no notion of how to run a business. However, with the town's livelihood at stake and a large loan due, she must find a way to bring new life to the inn. Despite their strained relationship, Jane turns to her resentful mother-in-law, Thora, for help. Formerly mistress of The Bell, Thora is struggling to find her place in the world. As she and Jane work together, they form a measure of trust, and Thora's wounded heart begins to heal. When she encounters two men from her past, she sees them--and her future--in a different light. With pressure mounting from the bank, Jane employs innovative methods to turn the inn around, and puzzles over the intentions of several men who seem to have a vested interest in the place. Will her efforts be enough to save The Bell? And will Thora embrace the possibility of a second chance at love?

Really enjoyed it!
Quite a simple story but lovely, non the less!
I am hoping that some of the story lines are continued on in the next book.

Well written, but low on Christian content.
The book is well written, but had very slight Christian content, and very much ended with alot of loose ends left open --- probably for a sequel. I listened to it in the car and was surprised when it ended.
