The Mulberry Tree

Description

A young widow inherits a run-down farmhouse and a whole new beginning in Virginia in this charming and emotional novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Summerhouse.

Quiet, unassuming, and overweight, Lillian did anything and everything to please her husband of twenty years, the illustrious self-made billionaire James Manville. Since the tender age of seventeen, she had obeyed this powerful older man’s every command and in return she received a life beyond her wildest dreams. Elaborate mansions. Trips around the world. The finest jewels and the most luxurious fashions.

But when Jimmie dies suddenly in a plane crash, Lillian’s pampered life comes to an abrupt halt. She learns that Jimmie has bequeathed all of his riches to his devious siblings. All, that is, except an old farmhouse in small-town Virginia. Although Lillian is devastated by Jimmie's death and apparent betrayal, she soon discovers a well of secrets connected to Jimmie’s past and uncovering them, she thinks, will help her to better understand the man she loved and mysteriously lost.

What Lillian doesn’t foresee is how her unexpected circumstances quickly transform her. She loses weight, changes her name to avoid further harassment from the press, and, with the help of Matthew Longacre, a kind, handsome local man, begins to renovate the farmhouse and establish friendships with the quirky townspeople. In time she develops her own thriving business and an inner strength she never knew existed. But, though Lillian’s new life seems as strong as the mulberry tree firmly planted outside her farmhouse, there remain secrets and lies that threaten to uproot the past she cherished and the future she will fight to protect.
