Something About the House


Small towns can be suspicious of newcomers, especially small towns in Maine, and everyone seems to be against the Morgans, who have arrived in Townsand to fill the empty school positions.

Things get much worse for them when Townsand and its neighboring communities try to unite into one school district. Old bigotries flare and long buried grievances threaten violence.

It will take a murder or two to resolve hostilities that have festered too long in this remote Maine region. And the Morgans must struggle to figure out why they seem to always be in the middle of it all. Is it about them? Or could it be Something About the House?

“I finished reading “Something About the House” approximately one o’clock this morning, and what a read it was! In spite of the fact that I kept admonishing myself . . . ‘Vi, this is fiction!’ . . . I emotionally tied to the cast [of characters] and was as exhausted as they by the end.  How about a sequel? Bring on the mayhem. Jane! I’m stockpiling Librium!”

Hi Jane, I finally got to your book and oh my . . .  I couldn’t put it down! Started it yesterday afternoon [Sunday] and finished it just now [Monday at 3:06]. Couldn’t wait to tell you that it’s really, really good . . . the twists and turns . . . I thought I had some of it figured out only to realize I didn’t! Eager to see what my husband thinks when he reads it! Appreciated the educational component and so much more . . . Great work! Blessings, Jacqui (retired school administrator).
