Item Description...
Grace, Amelia, and Hannah decide that the last thing they want to do is live out their lives in a group home, and so, to the dismay of their children, they pool their resources and move to Covington, North Carolina, and new lives.

Publishers Description
Cautious Grace Singleton, uncertain of her place in an intimidating world. Outspoken Hannah Parrish, harboring private fear that may change her life. Fragile Ameila Declose, shattered by devastating grief. Circumstance has brought these disparate women of "a certain age" to a Pennsylvania boardinghouse where three square meals and a sagging bed is the most any of them can look forward to. But friendship will take them on a starting journey to a rundown North Carolina farmhouse where the unexpected suddenly seems not only welcome, but delightfully promising. And with nothing more than a bit of adventure in mind, each woman will be surprised to find that they years they've reclaimed from the shadow of twilight will offer something far more rare: confidence, competence, and even another chance at love...

Delightful read  Nov 6, 2007
The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love: A Novel (Covington)

I was hooked on this author's writing after reading this first book in the series about the Ladies of Covington. It is a treat to read books about "women of a certain age" and their life's journeys with the challenges and joys that we all face. Truly a heart-warming story-line; I was very anxious to read the next in the series. I am also a fan of Jan Karon's writings about the Mitford folks and Joan Medlicott's character development is similar. This book makes a great gift for girlfriends.
The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love  Sep 17, 2007
I love the Ladies of Covington and the special friendship they share. Hannah, Grace, and Amelia are very different ladies and unique in their own way. This is a story of making something worthwhile work, for all of them, and certainly a story that most ladies in their senior years will be able to identify with. I look forward to reading the next book.
Three great ladies seeking a brand new start in life-A+++!  Jul 24, 2007
This book begins with 3 ladies that live together in Olive Pruitt's stuffy retirement home. When the book opens, Grace Singleton is trying to find out where any of Amelia DeClose's relatives might be as Amelia is in the hospital having some surgery done, but is recovering very fast. Amelia receives a parcel from her long lost cousin, Arthur Furrior who had passed away, willing her his property on the farm. It includes several acres of land, and a rundown farmhouse. But he also includes the sum of $50,000 to fix up the property.

Daring to seek adventure away from Branston PA., the three ladies head for Covington North Carolina to have a look at the farmhouse. They do find it needs almost a complete renovation, but little by little have it all fixed up like new. They love Covington at first sight, and talk about staying there forever. It takes awhile to convince Grace. She does not like changes in life as she used to always stick with her husband until he died in the same old rut. But gradually, she gives in to moving with Hannah and Amelia, and the three settle in for many new adventures.

This changes Grace for the better as she reaches out to new adventures and meets a new love in her life. The fragile Amelia, who had a lot of tragedy in her life that made her the way she is, discovers photography and this is her new love. And Hannah, who needs a hip replacement, has surgery, recovers nicely, and starts a greenhouse selling the plants she's always had a love for. Hannah has two girls, and in the past an abusive husband that made her fearful of life.

Grace's only son Roger is gay, and his partner Charles has HIV. Grace is devastated when she finds this out. Roger and his partner begin a new business and live life to the fullest even though Charles is sick.

A threat comes along from some other people that claim to have ownership to the farmhouse. The ladies then have another problem and have to seek an attorney's help to be able to hold on to the property that really is theirs.

First book of a promising series  Jul 8, 2007
Grace, Hannah, and Amelia are senior citizens who are living in a joyless boarding home, thanks either to their circumstances or to their children.
When Amelia inherits a home in the mountains of North Carolina, the ladies decide to investigate the house and see if it has possibilities. They overcome their fears and doubts and even the ramshackle state of the house in order to renovate and renew their lives and create a new home together. They soon fall in love with Covington and become involved with new interests and new friends. Their first year in Covington is an eventful one, as they forge their new lives and gain confidence and independence. Not all of their problems are solved, which leaves plenty for the succeeding books in the series. I look forward to reading more about the Ladies of Covington.
Let's Move to the Mountains  Jun 3, 2007
Three ladies meet at a "senior" home. One inherits a home in the mountains of North Carolina. They decide to move to the mountains together. Their adventure begins...

I loved this story because it was like a visit to the mountains. It was a good way to spend an afternoon. I look forward to reading other books in the Covington series.

I recommend this book if you like family stories and mountains.
