Believe it or not Marilee gets the job running the bed and breakfast. Along with the job she also learns that her mother has quit her job and needs Marilee to get the job so she has a place to stay. Marilee learns that her new boss John is an instructor at the college and has purchased the buildings and property as an investment once a planned road is built through the area.
As the renovations continue to get the bed and breakfast ready for clients, Marilee learns how to work with difficult people and the strange things that keep occurring like faucets turning on, flickering lights, and baseballs that move in and out of the house. Marilee learns that there is a history attached to this place. In its early life the building was once a hospital. Once penicillin was discovered this removed the need for the hospital itself so its owners took in the disabled, insane, and those needing convalescent care while healing from tuberculosis. Once the renovations were completed the old farming equipment from the barn is removed to get it ready for conversion into a dormer for the area’s college students. Then things really get weird.
Marilee and John definitely get off to a wrong start in this story but as they work more closely together the bond between them grows. In fact the entire little group from the cook, who looks like Elvis, to the handymen will become a family unit. Marilee learns that the people she thought she knew will prove to be different. Will this bond between Marilee and John be strong enough to save them from a king? What does Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest” have to do with all of this?
I really like that this story takes you on a journey and is written in such a way that you can connect with the main character Marilee. I like the author’s ability to describe the environment. Even when describing parts of a world unknown, one can see what the main character does and feels as she struggles through each ordeal. I also discovered a few grammatical errors. I give this book 3 out of 4 stars.
