Note from the Author

Sarah Sandlin is obsessed with genealogy and uses it to hide from life after losing her husband to cancer. To this thirty something, auburn-haired, blue-eyed American, the world is limited to her computer, her parents who live nearby and one best friend in another State.

She takes every opportunity to dodge interruption to her self-imposed solitude so when a letter arrives, inviting her to the United Kingdom to research an old and respected family's genealogy, she forgets to open it.

Sarah later finds the letter buried on the desk and natural curiosity pushes her to call the letter's author, Thomas Smith.

Something in his voice leads her to a first step out of her comfort zone and she accepts his invitation to the family's country estate, Highbridge, in North Yorkshire. 

Follow Sarah and discover the life of this British family and their estate home through her eyes. 

It was a great read and I stayed up till 4 am finishing this lovely book. FLGal2

This was my first novel ever and the beginning of the Windows Trilogy. I didn't realize I'd become so fond of the Smith family, it would take two more books to tell their stories. - Linda J

'I really enjoyed the book Windows. I felt I was transported to England along with Sarah and roamed the lovely rooms of Highbridge with her, meeting Thomas, Stephen and the others at the estate. The genealogy research interwoven in the story has made me curious to what else they will find about the family and I am looking forward to the next book of the Trilogy!' K.B.

'As a reader who loves genealogy, I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters are well developed and the story gradually builds to the cliffhanger at the end, which points the way to the next volume. I'm looking forward to her next volume and the continuation of the saga.'
