In her delightful new novella, Georgia Bockoven brings readers back to the beloved beach house and the charming cottage next door
What should have been the best day in Diana Wagnor's twenty-nine years easily turns into the worst when her job is downsized, she discovers her fiance in bed with her best friend, and she watches her cherished grandmother's house burn to the ground.
Clearly it's time to start over and get out of Topeka, Kansas, where she's spent her whole life. But what should she do? And how does she ever trust herself in another relationship when her one indisputable skill seems to be picking the wrong man?
Diana finds her answers at the cottage next door to the beach house with the help of a tall, sculptured, soft-spoken Californian, and a heart-shaped piece of sea glass.
'A Cottage in Shottery' is historical fiction based on fact. Most of the characters, (but not all) are real people and the events described actually happened, although what led up to them, and the eventual outcome, is imaginary. The story is woven around two women in the life of William Shakespeare, his wife and one of his daughters. There are many myths and legend about the Bard and I have chosen just a few, so the story is sometimes controversial'. The novella is divided in two parts with Anne and Judith telling their own stories.
