Thrifty Means
April 2010
The Wild Rose Press

New England towns know how to keep secrets.  But in Eastfield, the volunteers at the Thrifty Means have their fingers on the pulse of the neighborhood’s gossip, as well as on the many treasures donated to their charitable shop.  Eleanor Gilmartin, a single mother, finds something even more valuable: a supportive community.


When Evan Zane walks through the door one morning, Eleanor’s sanctuary is suddenly threatened.  Evan returns to town to clear out his aunt’s estate, but he stirs up more than dust.  An old tragedy is revisited, and the ghosts of the past insinuate themselves into the lives of the present.
