About the e-Novella:

Blurb:

1893 ... Alice Porterman is released from her duties as a maid and travels home to help her mother care for her sickly brother. But her mother and brother are not in their family home when Alice arrives and she learns the landlord, Albert Donahue, has evicted them into the harsh Boston winter. Alice goes in search of him and is surprised at what she finds.

Albert Donahue, an up-and-coming member of Boston’s elite, made his fortune through hard work and shrewd business deals. But his dreams of a family to share it with have not come true, perhaps until an impertinent young woman enters his home and won’t leave until she speaks to him.

Excerpt:

Alice waited in line, stepping finally into the small smoke-filled room, and held her gloves to her nose. The room was filled with people, some leaning against the wall and many sitting in groups on the floor. Children were being shushed, and some men paced the length of the room. Finally, Alice was next.

“Mr. Nyturn?”

“State your business, girl.”

“My mother and brother live at 604 Cherry Street,” Alice said, and leaned forward. “What a dastardly thing to do, to put out a sick boy and his mother over two dollars that she was paying within the month. Twenty years or more she’s lived there and never missed a rent. Now what does she owe you? I’m here to make it square.”

“That house is already rented to someone else,” he said. “I’ve no time for deadbeats. Next!”

“What? What do you mean? That is our family home!”

“Not anymore! New tenants on the first of the month. Next?”

“Now see here,” Alice began, but she stopped when two burly-looking men came to her on either side.

“Out,” Nyturn ordered, and pointed an ink-stained finger to the entrance. “I’ve no time for this.”

“Leave me be,” Alice shouted, as the men turned her around and forced her through the crowd of people. She was suddenly outside and the door closed soundly behind her. She blinked away tears of anger and embarrassment. After all, there was no one in there she knew, but she was not accustomed to such rough treatment, and her arms stung where they’d grabbed her. She would get no satisfaction from Mr. Nyturn, that was for certain! But living with and working for her last employer, Jolene Crawford Crenshaw Shelby, had given Alice a glimpse as to how to get what one wanted done, done.
