A STRANGE INHERITANCE OFFICIAL BLURB
Everybody dreams of a surprise inheritance and one comes to Meg at her lowest ebb, a letter, from an uncle she has never heard of, leaving her a derelict mill and bakery in a Yorkshire dale. With the gift comes a strange final request, asking her to ‘help close the circle’.
Meg visits the mill, falls in love with the place and its surroundings and throws herself into the challenge of rebuilding the old business. In the process she finds new friends – and a new love. But at the back of her mind are the questions of who exactly was the dead Henry Masterton – and why did he leave Meg everything he owned?
