The three spunky ladies who so charmed readers in "The Ladies of Convington Send Their Love "and "The Gardens of Covington "welcome us back to the small Southern town of Covington, to their quaint white farmhouse with yellow shutters on Cove Road.
Life lessons abound throughout "From the Heart of Covington, "as housemates Hannah, Grace, and Amelia continue to surround themselves with love and hope, meeting each new challenge with equanimity and heart and placing their trust in one another as their friendship strengthens and grows. In helping a dear friend and neighbor cope with illness, the ladies develop a deeper mutual compassion and a true appreciation for the softness of heart and toughness of spirit that join them as women.
Amelia, feeling strong and adventurous, takes a momentous trip to New York City to further her burgeoning photography career. Grace, kindhearted as ever, becomes involved with a little girl at the local elementary school who may be having terrible problems at home. Meanwhile, Hannah's daughter, Laura, is involved in a tragic accident that has serious consequences for all concerned.
With the same compassion and heart readers have already come to know and love, Joan Medlicott once again reveals how life's journeys and challenges only strengthen our loving commitments to family, friends, and loved ones. It's another inspiring message of courage, self-acceptance, and hope.

For those who don't care for violence, or bloodshed, but like interesting plots, and good character development, the Covington series is an excellent choice.

It's best to read the series in correct order, so as to understand the ongoing plot lines, but each book could stand on its own.

This series reminds me of the Medford series, only without the religion.
