Eyes on the PrizeBook - 2009
Once readers visit the charming village of Acorn Hill, they'll never want to leave. Three sisters -- Louise, a widow from Philadelphia; Alice, an unmarried nurse who lived with her father; and Jane, a divorced chef from San Francisco -- reunite in the sleepy town after their father's death and turn the family home into a charming bed-and-breakfast. Here the sisters rekindle old memories, rediscover their childhood bonds, revel in the blessings of friendship, and meet fascinating guests along the way. "Eyes on the Prize", a new autumn instalment in the best-selling Tales from Grace Chapel Inn series (over a million copies sold), takes readers back to Acorn Hill and the characters they have grown to love. September brings hints of autumn to Acorn Hill, and the Howard sisters face new challenges. Jane breaks out her running shoes and enters a charity race, hoping to win out not only against the clock, but also against an old rival. Alice tries to help find a way to make Vera Humbert's aunt's last days comfortable. But it is Louise's activity in the garden that has everyone excited. Will her giant pumpkin bring fame to Acorn Hill? Through all the excitement, the sisters have to remember to keep their eyes on the true prize.
