Yew Tree GardensBook - 2012
1910. Sisters Mattie, Nell and Renie all manage to escape their oppressive and bullying father, but now separated, the girls must draw upon their strength and courage to build new lives. Renie, the youngest sister, has had enough of Nell's husband Cliff and sets her sights on London. She manages to get herself a job as a chambermaid in a Hotel, but a shadow falls over her the day Dennis Judson arrives as the new manager. Terrified of him and feeling increasingly trapped, Renie makes a bid to get away. But it is only when she meets injured Gil that Renie feels like she has found herself and a place for herself.
