For first-time nanny Erin Moore, Thanksgiving isn’t a day filled with family and feasting, but with painful memories. When her new employer, art professor Dr. Manchester, asks her to teach his two grandchildren about it, she is forced to revisit a holiday she’d rather ignore. Dr. Manchester has suffered his own losses, so an unexpected friendship is forged between Erin and the professor. But is it enough to help them fully embrace the hope and healing that Thanksgiving offers?
Originally a part of A Very Bookish Thanksgiving, this novella is inspired by Jane Eyre.
