In this acclaimed addition to Joan Medlicott’s USA TODAY bestselling series, new joys overcome new troubles as the unforgettable Ladies of Covington embrace life in their small North Carolina mountain town. A dark cloud is hovering over the usually cheery farmhouse that Grace, Hannah, and Amelia share. Grace has lost someone dear to her, and the mysterious diary from the past has turned Hannah’s life upside down. To raise their spirits, the three ladies take an exotic Caribbean cruise and return with many wonderful stories. But sharing such close quarters while traveling has stirred up conflict, and Amelia and Hannah are suddenly questioning whether they want to continue living in the farmhouse together. Meanwhile, Grace faces her own challenges: the young girl she mentors unknowingly becomes involved with an Internet predator, and Grace’s diabetes worsens. Yet new joy enters their lives when Hannah’s daughter has a baby boy—and when Hannah finally lays her past to rest, she may just be ready to set a wedding date with Max! With warmth and charm, this celebration of female friendship will inspire and delight readers, whether they’re meeting these wonderful women for the first time or visiting Covington once more!
