Previously Loved Treasures

PREVIOUSLY LOVED TREASURES
A Southern Family Saga rich with magic and mystery …from a USA Today Bestselling Author of Women’s Fiction.

Recently widowed Ida Sweetwater’s son is missing and she’s determined to find him even if it costs her everything she owns.

Emptying out her bank account she hires a detective to search for the boy. When the money runs out Ida turns her cozy home into a boarding house to make ends meet. Although there is no trace of the missing son, the detective turns up a granddaughter Ida never knew she had.

Anticipating the girl’s arrival, Ida goes in search of a used bedroom set and discovers the Previously Loved Treasures shop. The delightfully strange proprietor, Peter Pennington, knows she is coming and knows what she wants. In addition to anticipating people’s needs, and offering bargain prices, Peter hands out sage advice. When a pocket watch belonging to one of the residents goes missing for a second time he warns of danger—but will Ida’s granddaughter listen and will she heed his advice?

Previously Loved Treasures is an uplifting story that resonates with Crosby’s heartwarming albeit quirky characters and the joy of Catherine Ryan Hyde’s Pay-it-Forward philosophy.

If you’ve read The Twelfth Child you won’t want to miss this exciting sequel that solves the mystery of the missing bonds.
