And... I get to meet the Christy cousins! But back to Theo's adventure. He is on the right street following directions he was given, there are teacups of all assortments for a perfect gift for his mother... and his favored English tea, then, as he's been told. All is not as it seems to appear.
~*~Lillian Smith leaves the Blue Ridge Mountains of Kentucky to travel to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, unexpectedly in 1895. A usual day of rising in the morning brings news that her namesake has died and she is to come and claim her inheritance.
Can you imagine going so far away? Lilly is a brave young woman setting off on a journey farther north than even her lumberjack cousins. On her venture to buy warm clothes, she is helped with the stuck door at the mercantile by a gentleman coming to pick up medicine. Theo enters her life.
This is such a fun story as you become acquainted with them as they interact with each other. Especially when her cousin Garrett Christy comes to take teacups and saucers back to his wife's tea shop at Mackinac Island. His little goading has an effectual beginning of awareness.
I look forward to further stories of Lilly's family.
