A Place of Hope Publisher's Summary

When Emily Mattison falls victim to a near-fatal accident shortly after receiving an unexpected inheritance, her ruthless nephew George seizes the opportunity to take control of his aunt’s assets.

Awaking from a coma to find herself locked up in a Geriatric Care Unit, Emily must rely on her wits and the help of her fellow patient Chad to escape. It’s only when Emily reaches the The Drover’s Hope, a former pub on the edge of the Lancashire moors, bequeathed to her by a cousin, that she begins to feel safe.

But it’s not so easy to escape the clutches of someone as determined as George, and Emily must draw on all her strength and resources to outwit her cold-hearted nephew.
