Meanwhile, The Courtyard becomes home to an eclectic group of tenants, all of whom have their own reasons for moving into the cottages. Their lives intertwine, forming an alliance, which will come in handy when they are faced with a tragedy involving Nell and, ultimately, the entire Courtyard community, which may be almost too much to bear for even the ones indirectly involved.
In THE COURTYARD, Marcia Willet has put together a fun story with loads of characters from so many backgrounds; you will find it easy to enjoy at least one of them. Gillian’s selfishness, Henry’s laid-back personality, Nell’s sweetness, John’s high-strung tendencies all contribute to this sweet story about normal people and the trials they face. I recommend THE COURTYARD and the quirky, funny and touching lives of its clan to any reader.
