The Spinster's Hope Chest

The Spinster’s Hope Chest (2018) has been called “a slice of history.” It tells the story of sisters Lizzie and Hattie Millet, who were born into poverty in Waterford, ME at the end of the Civil War. Each, in her own way, finds a way to pick herself up from a difficult start and make a better life with the help of grandparents. Lizzie, in particular, finds her path to success very difficult. This novel’s historical backdrop is painted with a delicate brush.
