The Hensel House — A Brief Synopsis

on November 4, 2015

Mary Frances Hensel is the granddaughter of Mary Frances Prinkey. When Grandma Mary dies she bequeaths the rundown boardinghouse to her beloved namesake, her young widowed granddaughter. Young Mary, in order to fulfill her grandma’s last wish, must decide whether or not to leave the security of her Pennsylvania home and travel to the newly founded state of California where she knows no one.

 

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Mary Frances Hensel was my maternal great-great grandmother. She and her husband had eight daughters. Her eldest daughter, my maternal great-grandmother, and the main character of The Hensel House,  did own and run a boardinghouse in the 1940s and was the catalyst, the jumping off point if you will, for this novel. Our story begins 70 years earlier, a decade after the end of the Civil War.
