Mary Ellen’s Latest

Lucy Kincaid’s search for home leads to the coastal community her late mother abandoned. Before she can decide to leave or to stay, buried secrets reveal darkness among the beauty of the house and land she has inherited. Will the chance for love and the people she’s embraced be enough to bind Lucy to the town and its people? Or will the mysteries she encounters and the chance for happiness prove too risky?

Meet Mary Ellen

A southerner by birth, Mary Ellen Taylor’s love of her home state, Virginia, is evident in her contemporary women’s fiction, from the Alexandria set The Union Street Bakery, Sweet ExpectationsAt the Corner of King Street, and The View from Prince Street  to her latest, Winter Cottage, set on the state’s Eastern Shore and debuting October 16th.

Like so many people, her protagonists search for their place in the world, exploring issues of family, home, love and belonging. Inevitably, Mary Ellen’s stories entwine with those of the places in which they’re set, and the mysteries at their core span past and present.
