The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen

Jeanette Fallon rated a book it was amazing
The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill by Julie Klassen
Just completed this book about Jane Bell and her journey of self-discovery. Jane is widowed and shows no interest in Ivy Hill. As time goes on, Jane blossoms and starts to care for Ivy Hill and all that is connected to this Inn.

In order for Ivy Hill to survive, changes must be made. Changes occur to the Inn as well as to all in the community. Change is not evil. It is important for personal as well as to the village growth. Jane's quest to save Ivy Hill is also saving her. She learns what is important and becomes more self-reliant. She is saving herself.

Thora, Jane's mother-in-law, learns to let go and begins a new chapter for herself.

Rachel, Jane's friend, learns she can survive losing her ancestral home with dignity and pride.

Charlie, Royal Mail Coach Driver, gives of himself to help a woman he had loved for years.

This story is rich in character development and elaborate detail of home and community.I

I loved it. Thanks, Julie Klassen! I enjoyed every minute.
