Book Three in the Lake Emily series

In Lake Emily, life’s greatest battles
are won by the power of friendship

Virginia Morgan is used to helping others–it’s who she is. A wife. A mother. A grandmother. A friend. But when Virginia suffers a debilitating stroke, she can no longer wear that apron. It is a change that sends her into the depths of hopelessness. Can she find her way to seeing that life is still well worth living? Or will she give up hope and sink deeper into despair?

Meanwhile, the Morgans and Biddles discover that each season of life has its adjustments–for Trudy Biddle marriage and a meddling mother-in-law, for Mae and Peter Morgan the challenges of keeping the family farm afloat as they welcome a new member into their family, and for young Jessie Wise hopes for a new mother.

Filled with the enchantment that makes Lake Emily everyone’s hometown, Aprons on a Clothesline is a lovely reminder that hope can be found even in the tragedies of life and that joy waits in the most unexpected places.

“Traci’s books…call my name and soothe my soul.” Jane Kirkpatrick, award-winning author of All Together in One Place and A Name of Her Own

As the third book in the Lake Emily series, the expectation of a heartwarming story with tight family ties and farming community values is already set. This was an enjoyable continuation to the series. I think I particularly appreciated Virginia's struggles to recover from her stroke. Read full review
