HARRIET BEAMER STRIKES GOLD
Harriet is back, and she is sassy as never before! Magnin’s unlikely heroine, an older woman, stars in a new adventure. This heartwarming story connects with familiar friends and introduces new ones, some of whom are not what they seem.
Harriet is trying to settle in at her new digs: her son and daughter-in-law’s house. She’s delighted to learn she will be a grandmother and will get her own addition to the house, but when an opportunity comes along, she invests more than she should in a gold mine. Problems arise as she tries to keep this from everyone, including her best friend Martha, and she invests more and more of her nest egg. Will it pay off big, or will she lose more than just her hard-earned money? (ZONDERVAN, Aug., 352 pp., $14.99)
