I’ve been waiting for this installment of Julie Klassen’s “Tales from Ivy Hill” series. And I’m happy to note that there are more to come. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
If you like period dramas, the type Masterpiece Theater does so well, you’ll enjoy this series. Ivy Hill is a small town in England and the stories are set around 1820. It’s a charming setting with a diverse cast of characters and enough real-life grit to make it all interesting.
In “The Ladies of Ivy Cottage” we catch up with old friends from “The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill” and meet some new people as well. One storyline that started in the first book wraps up nicely in book two while others are destined to play out in future installments. But that’s okay. The series is well-written and worth waiting for.
