Despite their strained relationship, Jane turns to her resentful mother-in-law, Thora, for help. Formerly mistress of The Bell, Thora is struggling to find her place in the world. As she and Jane work together, they form a measure of trust, and Thora's wounded heart begins to heal. When she encounters two men from her past, she sees them - and her future - in a different light.
With pressure mounting from the bank, Jane employs innovative methods to turn the inn around, and puzzles over the intentions of several men who seem to have a vested interest in the place. Will her efforts be enough to save The Bell? And will Thora embrace the possibility of a second chance at love?

Most enjoyable Book!!
If you could sum up The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill in three words, what would they be?
A book with substance
What about Elizabeth Jasicki’s performance did you like?
I loved her voicing for the different characters. She stayed "in character" for each person or character. Her cadence is great and she is very pleasant to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
It was too long to listen to in one setting, but I always anticipated the next time of listening. With this book, I learned about Audible's sleep timer.
Any additional comments?
The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill: Tales From Ivy Hill, Book 1, is a book of substance. The characters have depth, are well developed, do not simper, and it really is hard to know what will happen next. I feel like I know these people. Julie Klassen is not afraid to weave true faith in God and prayer through the story. I love an unpredictable plot that is not 'cut and dried' and the conclusion cannot be deducted early... Julie is a wordsmith and crafts a story in a most delightful way.

A gem! I can hardly wait for book 2!
This was very well read and written. I loved the characters and that the breadth of the story demands follow up. I have questions about what really happened in the past? What will become of our favorite characters? Will the criminal be brought to justice?
This is not a book of simpering females who all get their man. Real life regret and pain amidst acceptance and triumph. If you are looking for a good read, this book is for you!
