Enjoy Your Visit to Middlebury
I have a new favorite author and her name is Anita Higman. She introduced me to the town of Middlebury, which sits off the Texas coast and whose residents like to gather at the Rose Cottage Tea Room. The Rose Cottage Tea Room is owned by Charlotte Rose Hill.
Charlotte enjoys running her tea room, getting to know her patrons and preparing her specially designed tea for them. She was content, or so she thought, until her first and only love, Sam Wilder, walked into her tea room.
Sam had returned to Middlebury because his father was very ill, and wasn't expected to live very much longer. When his father requested to talk to Charlotte, Sam makes a trip to Rose Cottage Tea Room.
In a matter of hours Charlotte learns that Sam is engaged to be married to Audrey, and after an unpleasant talk with Sam's father, the reason she was told nearly 20 years before, in no uncertain terms, not to marry Sam. Although she thought her heart had mended, it was broken once again, as a result of this news.
As a way to put the past behind her, Charlotte agrees to cater Sam and Audrey's wedding. Will Charlotte be able to keep her agreement , or will past feelings interfere?
A Marriage in Middlebury is delightful and I fell in love with the town, it's people, and their stories. I commend the way Anita revealed Mr. Wilder's reasons for preventing Sam and Charlotte from marrying, although I wholeheartedly disagreed with him. I won't ruin the story for you, but, I was happy that Charlotte was able to see the truth and forgive him despite her heartbreak.
The people of Middlebury weren't perfect and neither were their relationships, but they chose to love and accept each other for who they were, and not for who they hoped they would be.
If you enjoy romance and meeting everyday people, then I recommend a trip to Middlebury. I must warn you though, you may just find that you want to stay. And, if you do visit, please say hello for me.
