Betrayal and trust go hand in hand in the first book of Heidi Eljarbo’s new turn-of-the-century series.
It’s 1898, and Lilly has spent most of her life motherless and living with a father who never looks for a silver lining. When her great-aunt Agatha passes, Lilly’s existence takes a drastic turn. She packs her few belongings and moves into the old lady’s magnificent estate, Rosenli Manor.
In the days that follow, Lilly tries to understand who Agatha really was, and hidden secrets slowly rise to the surface. Her great-aunt’s glamorous legacy is not quite what Lilly had imagined. She must trust in newly forged friendships, and to her surprise, she discovers what it means to truly fall in love. But not everyone is happy about the new mistress of Rosenli.
Intrigue, mystery, and a touch of romance in the Norwegian countryside fill the pages of Secrets of Rosenli Manor. Fans of Rhys Bowen, Julie Klassen, Kathleen McGurl, Kate Morton, and Lucinda Riley will be delighted with this new novel.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Heidi Eljarbo is the bestselling author of historical fiction and mysteries filled with courageous and good characters that are easy to love and others you don’t want to go near.
Heidi grew up in a home filled with books and artwork and she never truly imagined she would do anything other than write and paint. She studied art, languages, and history, all of which have come in handy when working as an author, magazine journalist, and painter.
After living in Canada, six US states, Japan, Switzerland, and Austria, Heidi now calls Norway home. She and her husband have a total of nine children, thirteen grandchildren—so far—in addition to a bouncy Wheaten Terrier.
Their favorite retreat is a mountain cabin, where they hike in the summertime and ski the vast, white terrain during winter.
Heidi’s favorites are family, God’s beautiful nature, and the word whimsical.
ROSENLI MANOR SAT bathed in a pleasant glow when Lilly arrived early the following day.
Rays of sunshine sprayed the few snowy spots left on the ground, and two sparrows flittered
between the bare branches of birches and hazelnut trees.
She’d only attended two funerals. The first one was for her beloved mother, then Uncle
Alfred had passed a few years later.
A whiff of freshly baked goods met her as she opened the main door and stepped across
the threshold. Maids were buzzing around an immensely long table set up in the middle of the
grand entry hall, smoothing the linen tablecloth, and hurrying to and from the kitchen carrying
trays and baskets of cakes and sweet rolls.
Gertrude came toward her. “Oh, there you are, love. The reception is being prepared
according to Agatha’s wishes. I hope you are pleased.”
“It looks wonderful. Are you expecting a large crowd?”
“The townsfolk. Your great-aunt was much loved.”
