(From back cover)
When Pam and Mark Walker, a couple of "East Coasters," purchase the fire -ravaged Montis Abbey, intending to convert the historic landmark into a country inn, the residents of Lumby, a quirky one-moose town, look on with suspicion. As work begins, the Walkers face the open hostility of the cranky old newspaper publisher with a dark secret, and the sometimes helpful, often hapless assistance of the local tradespeople.
The benign mayhem and and full array of personalities come to life in snippets from the local paper, The Lumby Lines, which offers an endearing glimpse into small town living and the extraordinary moments of ordinary lives.
Gail Fraser has done for Lumby what Garrison Keillor did for Lake Wobegon...what Jan Karon did for Mitford. The Lumby Lines paints a picture full of laughter and love and conjures up magic in an ordinary town---setting the stage for more charming stories.
