A contemporary tale set in Texas and Rural England.
Our heroine Lily escapes her life in Texas which is definitely not going to plan. She needs to stop stalking her Ex and his new Girlfriend. Now, after blurting out to them that she is going to England, She, has to follow through.
Her book shop owning fried a kindred spirit had shown her the re-enactment Jane Austen Mansfield Park Summer Literary Event and now she had to go.
So, after selling all her worldly goods to get her air fare she is on her way.
In England she meets a whole host of colorful and intriguing characters all stuffed into a crumbling ancient manor house. A house with virtually no plumbing and very little electricity.
Her roommate is a gothic rock chic who keeps running away. In the attic room is a beautiful man, her soul mate but with a secret.
Lily is determined to rise to every challenge put before her, however impossible that may be. But for all her determination she can not stop the inevitable.
Journey through Lily’s Mansfield Park with her it’s a lot of fun and pretty entertaining, funny but with a darker under layer, as she come to terms with grief and disappointment.
