With Love, Emily Volume 2
by Kathleen E. Hamilton

After an acrimonious departure from their home at Westbury farm Emily and Paul move to the city of Preston where they take up work at the Jubilee hotel. Paul becomes involved with some nefarious characters and Emily finds herself alone most of her free time. Following a devasting confession by her husband Emily finds herself thrown into the comforting arms of her friends Bobbie, Malcolm, Edith and with their help she learns to live alone, stand on her own two feet and to fall in love. When things in her life don't work out as she had hoped Emily decides it is time for her to take charge of her own destiny. Her love of reading proves a doorway to new friends and new cultures, her watercolours bring a couple of fresh beaux into her life and her love of dancing keeps her athletically alive. Nevertheless, the call of Kimbol is always on her mind-Martha, Stephen, Jack and the children, John and Sarah, they are fostering pull at her heartstrings. So when her old friend, the Major, makes her an offer she probably can't refuse Emily is caught between her new life in Preston and the possibility of having her dreams fulfilled in Kimbol. Follow Emily as she digs deep into her soul to resolve her conundrum.
