My thoughts: Anita Higman is one of my favorite authors. Well, I have many I enjoy. But I do count Ms. Higman as a favorite. I have reviewed several of her books and look forward to more in the future.
Today we’re looking at A Marriage in Middlebury which takes place in a small town and primarily at the local Tea Shop owned by spinster (in her 30s) Charlotte who is also the sweetheart of the small town. Charlotte seems to have a special way of making life just a little better for each and every person she knows. Open the book, turn the pages, and fall in love with Charlotte. The question is, “Why isn’t Charlotte married?”
Another you’ll love is young Obie who is from a fractured family and whose troubles only begin once the book starts. So be prepared to open your heart a bit to him.
As you meet each character, you discover bits and pieces about them and find that there are missed opportunities, secrets, and broken spirits that need healing. As Anita Higman crafts her characters and weaves their stories toward the book's ending, you will most likely be surprised at just how it does end and at the secrets revealed.
Friends, this is another Higman book I can recommend to you.
