Book Review: The Tumble Inn by William Loizeaux

Posted by Elle  |  at   7:30 PM No comments

 I received this book in exchange 
for an honest review from NetGalley.

The Tumble Inn follows the life of Mark and Fran Finley,
 two high school teachers from New Jersey.

Mark and Fran feel they've become stuck in their teaching jobs
but don't quite know what to do about how they're feeling.  
They'd been trying to conceive a child for five years with no success.
Their lives are not what they envisioned.

 Fran replies to an ad in the newspaper 
for an innkeepers position in the Adirondack Mountains.
  She embellishes quite a bit about her and Mark's qualifications.
Mark isn't as fascinated as Fran is about the possibility of this new vocation, 
especially because he knows they don't have the experience the innkeepers job entails.
  When Fran receives a call that the Board of Directors of The Tumble Inn 
want to meet with them, they head up North and so begins the journey of a
new adventure for the Finleys.

Although they don't have the experience, they learn 
through trial  and error about the operations of running the inn.  
They become proficient innkeepers and continue
 operating the inn for the next twenty years.
There are many ups and downs, new experiences, life-changing and tragic
happenings throughout the book.

This heartwarming story is an encouragment to those
 looking to make a lifestyle change and to gain the courage to
try something outside their comfort zone.
