The Widow's Mite (Widows Book 2)
Minnie Price lives in an impressive, gated mansion on a superior street in an affluent area of town. But in spite of the apparent comfort of her surroundings she has barely enough to keep body and soul together. She has retreated to a single room where she subsists on things bought as cheaply as possible or - better still - picked up for nothing. Her friends and neighbours are oblivious to her plight, too occupied with their do-goodery to see the need underneath their noses, while her unfeeling step-children do all they can to wrest from Minnie the little that she has.
Then one day, a caller arrives with what seems to be a life-line; a fund of money left behind by Minnie’s late husband of which her step-children know nothing. It is hers - legitimately hers - if only she can jump through the complex logistical hoops to release it.
The Widow’s Mite is the second book in the Widows series. It follows on where The Hoarder’s Widow left off but can be read as a standalone.
