About Secrets of Wayfarers Inn
On the banks of the Ohio River, in the historic town of Marietta, Ohio, a trio of good friends stumbles across an empty historic waterfront stone building while house hunting. Next to a Realtor’s “For Sale” sign, an aging bronze plaque on the doorpost marks the building as once being a pre-Civil-War stop on the Underground Railroad. The four-story building, originally built as a hotel, was most recently used as a warehouse for goods arriving via river barges, but it has sat empty for the past decade. On a whim, LuAnn Sherrill, Tess Wallace, and Janice Eastman start to think of what a beautiful bed-and-breakfast this could be. When all is said and done, these three friends are the proud co-owners of the neglected but elegant structure, which they plan to renovate and open as a café and B&B known as Wayfarers Inn. While remodeling, they come across hidden passages, filled with secrets and surprises of all sorts, which set them on a course to solving mysteries.
As the trio of friends are drawn further and further into the mysteries of the inn and the town of Marietta, with its intriguing antebellum heritage, each one finds her own personal faith enriched—in both God and humankind.
Treat yourself to Guideposts’ newest Christian Mystery series, Secrets of Wayfarers Inn, where pre-Civil War mysteries abound in these cozy fiction books about faith and friendship.
When retired school teachers LuAnn Sherrill, Tessa Wallace, and Janice Eastman, decide to buy an inn built in 1851 and turn it into a café and bed and breakfast, someone is not happy. Strange things begin to happen in the building—handprints on a dusty mirror, a missing wallet—and who owns the gold earring? Realtor Bradley Grimes is helping them unravel the mystery when he finds one of his own. In a ledger from the 1800s he finds the name of his great-great-grandfather, Howard Bickerton, the man he’d always thought of as a hero in the Underground Railroad. But was he?
Prudence Willard, a farmer’s wife and conductor on the Underground Railroad, faces danger on a regular basis, but nothing is quite as frightening as witnessing what happened to Howard Bickerton—and keeping the knowledge to herself. Should she report Bickerton’s death and the man who assumed his identity, or remain quiet for the sake of the Cause?
