1893 . . . Alice Porterman is released from her duties as a maid and travels home to help her mother care for her sickly brother. But her mother and brother are not in their family home when Alice arrives and she learns the landlord, Albert Donahue, has evicted them into the harsh Boston winter. Alice goes in search of him and is surprised at what she finds.
Albert Donahue, an up-and-coming member of Boston’s elite, made his fortune through hard work and shrewd business deals. But his dreams of a family to share it with have not come true, perhaps until an impertinent young woman enters his home and won’t leave until she speaks to him.
My newest historical romance, The Maid’s Quarters, is now available. This novella tells Alice Porterman’s story, who readers met in the second book of The Crawford Family Series, Contract to Wed. I hope you enjoy Alice and Albert’s story and look forward to hearing from you!
