I loved the first two books, looking forward to the third. The ladies in Ivy Hill are not perfect, which makes them even more likeable. They help out where they can, they doubt their own plans and thoughts sometimes, eager to be a blessing in the community. Each story is different, but they all meld together perfectly.

The Ladies of Ivy Cottage by Julie Klassen is the second book in the Tales from Ivy Hill series. The women of the village are encouraging Miss Rachel Ashford to set up a circulating library with the many books that were left to her by her late father. As she begins to sort through the different books that the villagers also donate she stumbles upon a mystery. With the help of an ex-suitor Rachel searches for clues. Mercy Grove, Rachel’s hostess, is resigned to being a spinster and running her girls’ school. So, when several men begin to stop by Ivy Cottage she assumes they are interested in Rachel. The truth may come as a shock to everyone. I admit the story started out a little slow. It seemed to be just the everyday lives of an English village. But, once you immersed yourself in that daily living you began to be a part of it. I couldn’t put the book down. I enjoyed getting to know the ladies living in Ivy Hill. Their struggles and triumphs were an inspiration. I can’t wait for the next book.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

A polite and soft look at life in an English village in the 1820's. While this novel stands alone, it really helps to read The Innkeeper of Ivy Hill first to familiarize yourself with the many characters of the village, as they carry forth into The Ladies and the plot deepens. It is astonishing to read how narrow minded the people are, and grudges or misconceptions from 30 years past still affecting their daily lives. Julie Klassen writes with both dignity and style.
