Saint Maggie

Saint Maggie
B.R.A.G Medallion Honeree

Book Description

Maggie, a widow with two teenage daughters, runs a rooming house smack dab on the town square.  In 1860, this makes her a social outcast – boarding houses are hardly respectable.  And her collection of eclectic boarders – a failed aging writer, an undertaker's apprentice, a struggling young lawyer, and an old Irishman – only brings her snubs and snide comments, as does her friendship with Emily and Nate, an African-American couple with whom she shares her home and chores.

So Maggie is stunned when she is asked to provide a room for Jeremiah Madison, the new and very gifted Methodist minister.  He may be able to revive the little church she attends and provide her boarding house with some badly-needed respectability.  But Jeremiah comes with secrets that will change Maggie, her friends, and her town forever.  This story of love, forgiveness, and faith is based on an historical event.

OUR NEWEST B.R.A.G. MEDALLION HONOREES!
