Publisher Description

Does love conquer all? Nell's not so sure.

Adjusting to wedlock isn't easy for a woman whose initial aversion to the married state took her to the Poor Farm. When a tragedy out of the blue prompts her to repay past debts, her charitable instincts threaten to wreck her happy new life. What does she really want—and what does she really need?

Attraction to an old friend shakes Tess's world. Can she change his indifference to love?

Martin struggles with demons from his own past as he oversees the rebuilding of the store and the creation of a new home. Will his ambitions hurt those he loves the most?

Young Sarah faces the antagonist who knows the secret that might ruin her future.

Join the beloved characters from the House of Closed Doors series as we bridge the years between Nell's story and Sarah's, interweaving stories of love and despair, darkness and light in the turbulent Chicago of the late 1870s.

The Jewel Cage

A well researched and well written book, which made it immensely satisfying to read. I was sorry to reach the end of this enjoyable bread, Looking forward to additional books based on this cast of characters. Highly recommend starting with book 1 of the series; it is well worth it.

Great Series

I’ve loved all the books from the very beginning. Nell, Sarah and Tess have become great friends of mine and I was so pleased to see a new book about them. The love story between Nell and Martin is amazing and has real life trials that anyone can relate to in some fashion.
