Jenny and Tom have been kindness itself to Lacey, their new employee, but has she betrayed their trust by falling for their beloved daughter...?
Four stories of Women loving Women
Eternal Optimist – Lacey is making her way in the world of working for a living, and her first job means moving, away from home to Lichfield, one of the smallest cities in the country.
